This was our third stay in the last six months. The first was due to the hotel's Tripadvisor rating, the next two were due to the wonderful experience we had in the previous stay(s). The building is a classic Fifth Avenue co-op building with a hotel interwoven within. I think there are only about fifty units which are rented as hotel suites. The rest are occupied by the residents. These residents are in effect the employers of the staff so the service is amazingly personal and attentive. We loved having breakfast in the on-site restaurant, one of the Cipriani chain of restaurants which offers a discount to hotel guests. I will mention parenthetically that the hotel also has a discount arrangement with the Botega del Vino restaurant next door. We had several great lunches there. They have a carryout counter, a casual eating area (no table clothes) as well as nice dining room (white table cloths).
The location of the hotel at the corner of Fifth and 59th is very convenient, particularly to mid-town and the east side and is a short cab/healthy walk from Times Square and the theater district. I characterize it that way because cabs are hard to come by when all the theaters let out at the same time so we usually walk back to the Sherry. Yes that's how we regulars refer to the hotel:-). The hotel is on the northeast corner, and counter clock-wise you have the huge Apple store, FAO Schwartz, Bergdorf Goodman (men) Bergdorf Goodman (ladies), the small park in front of the Plaza Hotel, and finally the large park known as Central Park on the northwest corner.
And, if you really fall in love with the place they have a number of units being offered for sale at any given time!
