We stayed for two nights at the end of a trip round east coast USA. We usually stay in Midtown, but thought we'd try the Upper East side on this occasion. We enjoyed our stay, but would probably try somewhere else next time. Our room was on the third floor overlooking 77th street. I would suggest getting as high a floor as possible (we should have insisted on a higher floor) as the noise from the road is very loud on lower floors - we were woken up by delivery trucks etc from 3:00am onwards.
- Very comfortable bed
- Room size decent by New York standards
- Very tasty breakfast (best of all the hotels we stayed at)
- WiFi provided free (but it is painfully slow)
- Welcoming & helpful doormen
- Road noise impact on lower floors during the night
- The bar is too small for the hotel & whatever seating room is available is partially wasted by seating with no backs (so nobody sits on that part of the sofa). The lighting in the bar is modern & funky, but the impractical cow-hide sofa clashes horribly with the decor of the rest of the room.
- The 'one device controls everything in the room' concept sounds great, but isn't very practical at 3:00am in the dark.
- Breakfast service patchy (repeatedly had to ask for coffee top ups & milk etc).
