What an amazing view from the higher floors, it feels like you are going to a private VIP shopping tour to Macy's or else on 5th Ave. Due to my Hilton Honors Status I got a multiple upgrade to a Suite with a living room, that impressed my NY friends who visited me. As I showed up a day late, due to some misunderstandings in the arrival date, after my transatlantic flight, the Hotel had charged to my credit card the walk-in rate of the Suite at >2,500 $ - to my corporate credit card, which allows only US gov't rates, LOL. I was qualified no-show, and charged the full rate of the suite, as if I had ordered it. My GM was very surprised... Anyway, the Hotel kept the upgrade, and paid the difference back to my credit card. The suite was indeed old-fashioned, and the windows were small and dirty, but I had great fun, and my friends weer impressed.. What else you want. The bar is of course THE place to meet in NYC.
