We stayed in the Lexington suite on the top floor. Although it was a challenge to maneuver up four flights of narrow stairs with near-fifty-pound suitcases, the rooms were beautifully decorated and comfortable. For our family of five, there was ample space (more than I could have imagined while staying in New York City.)
Our home is in a relatively rural area, and we are not used to city noises at night. Our recommendation to any light sleepers is to bring earplugs. With the occasional knocking of the radiator, horns, and brakes, you may need them to get restful sleep-although the beds are very comfortable.
