Only stay here if noise is not an obstacle for a restful night. The service was very friendly, as it always is at a Kimpton property. The hotel is very out-of-the-way (unless you're going to a Daily Show taping or to something at the Javits Center), which might make you think it's quiet, but you'd be wrong. The elevators dinging is very loud, so rooms close to the bank of 4 elevators aren't that quiet, and the rooms farther away are closer to 11th avenue, where honking cars are an issue. If you're on the 48th street side, you're treated to the sound of FedEx trucks backing up into their shipping center. The room doors close with a loud bang. While there are nice views of the river because of low surrounding buildings, the downside is that traffic noise carries farther. The windows aren't soundproofed enough - on one night, there was a Verizon truck doing emergency road work and I could hear the thrumming of the generator despite setting the fan on high, running a white noise machine, AND using earplugs.
