Had a 3 night stay in NY on our way down to Fort Lauderdale in Sept 2011. The hotel has fantastic contemporary design. Our room was very nicely decorated with a high ceiling and large window with views to the river and uptown. The bed was massive and very comfortable.
We liked the wine reception they had each evening, a nice touch.
The rooftop terrace is absolutely great. The views to the city are amazing and we loved the modern seating design and ornamental pool up there. However the drinks were extortionate and our white wine was served in a warm glass! This is inexcusable for a bar that potrayed itself with such distinction. We tried to call our server over to complain but she disappeared for about 20 mins. In fact the couple opposite had left their cheque for sometime and it blew away.
The hotel is located near the river, ideal to visit USS Intrepid which is right round the corner. It is a little walk into Times Square and the main restaurant area but we did walk it each evening.
Overall found New York way too expensive, everything cost so much money and we felt a bit ripped off especially compared to Fort Lauderdale when we got there. Some may say that is cities for you but I won't be returning in a hurry. Our hotel cost three times the ones in FL and they were as nice. I have nothing against this hotel it was very nice, this is a general comment on New York as a city.
