Stayed here for a week during the 'polar vortex' in January. First time in NY so no idea what to expect and where things were in comparison but it was the perfect location. 20 seconds to a tube line, nice view of the empire state building from the roof top, very close to Macy's and other high street shops.
Breakfast was adequate and what you'd expect from a city hotel, no cooked food but plenty of bread / bagels for toasting, yoghurts, fruit, stupidly large muffins, cereal, fruit juice and hot drinks. The place has a real 1940s vibe and the area breakfast is served in is nice with its posters of old movies.
The staff were so helpful and friendly too (as I've found throughout America). Only downside (and its really minor) were the towels in the bedrooms. They were rather scratchy and very small, oh and for me the pillows were massively thick. I did ask if they had any thinner ones and she just joked that perhaps I could try punching it a bit. Finally it was a bit noisy, I'm not sure if that was down to thin windows or if its always that noisy in all hotels in the middle of NY. Doesn't help that there is always some sort of horn or siren going off. Our room was facing the road so perhaps other rooms were quieter. If I ever go back I would definitely consider staying here again.
