We received took a room upgrade from the Cozy Room to the Beautiful Room upon
checking in. When we entered our Beautiful Room room my wife said, "Yikes. How
much smaller can the Cozy Room possibly be?". Our room measured 11 X 14 feet,
not counting the narrow hall and teeny bathroom. We chuckled at how the TV was
bolted to a stainless steel pole, an achievement in conserving space. It
reminded us of a stripper pole. But who needs a big room anyway? The bed was
soft and the room was warm. The walk from Grand Central was safe and took under
10 minutes. The front desk, concierge and doormen were upbeat and polite.
The staff told us where to get a little ham and eggs in the morning. The Hotel restaurant was pricey, offering red wine from $12 to $18 by the glass. A beer was $9. Their chicken dish was recommended by the waiter and for $27 it was OK. The service was great. Try dining outside of the hotel. The concierge will provide you with a list of good choices. When you have a chance, walk a block to 570 Lexington Ave and see the former headquarters of RCA, an Art
Deco triumph built in 1931....and take a moment to step into the lobby. It is
worth it. Our bed had a naked lady headboard which was more artistic than
naughty but imagine our surprise when we flicked the wall switch and the naked
lady lit up. Crazy cra cra. There was a lot of construction going on in the hotel lobby during our stay. Painting and patching may continue until April, 2014. Our 2 night weekend stay was very good because the hotel could not have been in a better location. It is is in a clean and safe neighborhood. 30 Rock and St. Patrick’s are 3 blocks away. Central Park South is 7 blocks away. Times Square is 5 short and 4 long blocks away. 5th Avenue is 5 minutes on foot. Just fantastic for getting around mid-town. Be sure to try the New York Luncheonette round the corner on 50th for breakfast. Happy traveling.
