I cannot say enough about this hotel. I don’t want to spoil it because once everyone finds out about it, then I won’t be able to get a room or won’t be able to afford one. Wonderfully comfortable beds and baths, breathtaking lobby, large fireplace and lounge where wine is served at 5 PM and coffee at 5 AM (great for the jet lagged). 24 hour room service (albeit somewhat limited in the wee hours) !! Incredible gym and spa area. Just down the street from Union Square and all of the action of shopping and restaurants. Theaters are on the next block. If I had one complaint it would be the restaurant (Grand Café) that is attached. One order of waffles and one continental was $40. However, many other places to choose from. Everyone goes to Dottie’s around the corner (there is a line out the door). Olympic which is almost next door doesn’t look like much but we had the best pancakes there! Give it a try. Finally, if you have a car, just park around the corner at the 24 hour lot on Taylor. I saw no reason to pay for the valet service which I believe worked out to about twice the cost.
