it was a quiet week at the hotel. The first night I had room service and ordered the pork ribs. it was served with a hot sauce that I had to find out if it was made there or purchased. The next night I went to the lounge and told the bartender how good the pork and hot sauce was.... More

We were there for the so-called grand re-opening and it was terrible.They had no wine, and blamed it on it being their first day, but the next day they still had none. The meal started with cold, plain, sliced-bread toast and hard butter pats which could not be spread. The dinner menu allowed you to chose one of five entrees... More

We had a quick snack in the lounge: tasty, reasonable size servings, friendly efficient waiters. I wouldn't go out of my way to return - but if I needed to meet up with friends close to UN Plaza, I could happily decide on this as a lounge to go to. I have not tried the Grill.

For the buffet, they customized what I wanted, since I do not eat pork. The brought me bageks and lox, and a very good custom ommellette.

I have been to numerous restaurants all over, so please don’t take my review the wrong way because it’s a comparison. I would say that this restaurant is defiantly overpriced for the quality of food that you get. If you want a nice Brunch I suggest you go to the Water Club. This place, on the other hand, has a...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
