The New York Palace is the hotel made famous years ago by Leona Helmsley. The public spaces are elegant without being as stuffy as with some similar New York hotels. The guest rooms are newly remodeled. My room was considerably larger than rooms I’ve had at comparable hotels in New York, and the furnishings are upscale yet comfortable. The bathroom was alright, but fairly ordinary by standards of similar hotels. The standard-sized closet included a relatively large safe (plenty large enough for a lap top), as well as an umbrella (nice touch). A panel by the bed controlled the lighting and temperature in the room (but not the window coverings). Wireless internet was $15 daily, which I find annoying when hotels charging a fraction of these rates provide it for free. My room looked directly onto St. Patrick’s Cathedral, with Rockefeller Center in the near distance. The hotel was only a block from my business meetings on Park Avenue, yet also within an easy walk of Rockefeller Center. Walking back from dinner and a show on 45th Street in the Theater District also was easy. The walk was not far, and the entire route was well lit with many others walking around at that time of the night. Fifth Avenue was only one block over, and Central Park not far either. I give the Palace four rather than five stars due to minor annoyances caused by housekeeping (like failing to restock the face cloths in the bathroom), a somewhat chaotic reception / check-in area (at least when I was there), and the lack of other small but appreciated amenities provided by similar properties (including morning newspapers, turn down service, or even a friendly greeting (or any greeting at all) by the door staff when returning to the hotel), all leading to less of a feel of luxury and high end service compared to similar properties in New York.
