We used points to stay here so essentially I can't comment on the value of the room. If I had paid $400+/night, I'm not sure the review would be quite the same; however, we did find the staff exceedingly helpful and friendly, the room (while a little small) very comfortable and well-laid out, the amenities top-notch and luxe.
Any problems or requests we had were solved immediately (an extra luggage rack, more towels or ice). The room was a sleek but not cold, with wood floors, warm colors, blankets with texture. The bedding was very nice, a high thread count duvet and sheets with a plethora of pillows. While the room was small, the drawer and closet space was very good---it was easy to get organized and keep the room uncluttered. The safe had plenty of room for a couple of laptops and other items. I loved the large glass shower and the Peter Roth soaps and shampoos.
Do be aware that this is not a regular hotel so there isn't maid service everyday, and there will be a pitch for a time share which you can politely decline without any further hassle. That said, there seemed to be A LOT of older people seemingly from the Midwest in town for Broadway plays and the like. We're middle-aged too but we felt very young (in spirit?) in comparison, and besides us, there seemed to be a few younger, hipper Japanese tourists who must have been puzzled too. Usually the hotels in NYC are as diverse and international as the city itself. Not this one.
If you're looking for an upscale, luxe but low-key (minus the sales pitch) place to lay your head, then this is an outstanding choice, particularly if you're not shelling out any cash for it.
