Morgans isn't much upon entry, just a tiny lobby with an attentive desk clerk discreetly tucked away. Then you open the door of your room and it looks huge for a New York Hotel. But it isn't--clever, clever design makes the room feel much bigger than it really is. We really appreciated that, as it lacked the claustrophobic feeling common to many NYC hotels (at least in the sub-$400 range).
The location was perfect for breakfast in the beautiful Grand Central Station, a lecture at the NYC library (the one with the big lions in front), and just half a block from one of the best book/art museums in the world, the Morgan.
We got in a couple of hours late, so we took room service. The menu was small, but excellent. And the food was delicious. There was a complimentary breakfast that looked much better than average, but we just took coffee...the restaurant/bar that serves as a daytime lounge for guests was beautiful.
The toiletries were very nice (love the bay rum soap...now I want some for home) and the bathroom was small, but clever. Instead of the usual pathetic bathtub that only works for a six-year-old, they turned the entire bathroom into a wetroom with a shower that boasts a rain-shower head AND a directional detachable shower head. Really smart.
We came across it by accident (when I was looking for hours for the Morgan Library), but we plan on staying there next time we go to NYC. It was a perfect balance of luxury and budget.

- From the moment it opened its doors on Madison Avenue in New York City, Morgans startled the world with a convention-shattering attitude and distinctive design sensibility, concocted by legendary designer Andree Putman. Again in 2008, Morgans unveiled Andree Putman's powerful reinterpretation of the first "boutique hotel" that propels Morgans' spirit forward without changing its unique character. Other features include a state of the art fitness center. Conveniently located in midtown Manhattan, Morgans is just steps to Grand Central Station, Macy's Herald Square, and The Morgan Library Museum.
