Located right across from Central Park, this hotel will make you feel like royalty. Horses and carriages await across the street while the hotel staff is quick to answer your every request.
And I do mean you will feel like a celebrity. At one point, we walked out and found ourselves flanked by men with machine guns. Apparently, a celebrity or dignitary was next door at Mickey Mantle's restaurant and the extra security was necessary.
Our room on the 32nd floor was utilitarian but comfortable. Lots of thick rich towels, robes, and slippers. Flat screen TV and wireless Internet provided with no issues. We were missing a refrigerator from our room but when mentioned at the front desk, they were happy to provide one.
Although upscale, they still use the horrible scratchy fingernail-catching bed covers. Room temperature is tough to control but we coped by turning on the fan and and raising the heat.
Elevators are plentiful and fast. Staff is very attentive and pleasant.
Location is perfect and within easy walking access to everything from Times Square to Central Park, from Rockefeller Centre and Radio City Music Hall to some of the best restaurants in the city.
Tour buses are just across the street and the subway is just down the block. Very convenient!
But very expensive if you don't watch for a sale.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat as long as we can catch a reduced rate.
