I stayed here one night on my way to NYC and it was a pleasant surprise. Pulling up curbside I was greeted by chestnuts and cider on the 'portch' and upon entering the lobby on a Saturday night the place was quite busy. The lobby is a beautiful space whose primary function is that of their bar operation and for a hotel bar the place was packed. Lots of fancy attire perhaps grabbing a drink before heading to a show/ballet; but it didn't bother me. Front desk is small and intimate and a few steps away the elevators whisk up to the rooms. For a city hotel they're are large and comfy in traditional green, yellow and rust...not very luxurious and the furniture is due for replacement. A small fridge on the floor was the minibar, a bit weird; but as I was here for just a night, didn't matter. The bathroom was nice sized...both a tub and separate shower, all in Ritz marble. Room service provided an excellent burger and fries, big and juicy and the view of the City Hall and main boulevard was nicer than expected. All in all a great stay with nice helpful staff.
