I stayed with a friend for 5 nights. The room was lovely and clean. Having the roof top garden was great - it was nice to have a place to sit outside in the middle of the city. The hotel was well situated, near a subway station where you could go either up or down town. The breakfasts were an added bonus. Great selection to choose from and there was tea, coffee and juice available 24 hours a day. The cheese and wine in the evening were great. This was served monday - Saturday 5.30pm - 8.30pm. You could either sit in reception lounge area with this or take it up to the rooftop garden. The room rates are not cheap but you do get a lot of extras thrown in. If I am back in New York I would definately stay at this hotel again.
