“Lounge only - Awesome Manhattans. Day view is probably best”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went for cocktails and a snack after a Broadway show. Delicious Manhattans and sliders!!! View from lounge was pretty nice but since you are only overlooking Central Park which has little lights on the paths and Columbus Circle which is just a traffic roundabout, there's not much to see at night. Also, the CNN sign was blaring in our faces!

I would recommend a daytime cocktail since you can then enjoy the views of both the Park and the Circle when there is more action going on.

“One of the best views in the city”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

The view of Central Park is amazing. Make a reservation of you would like a window view - always reserved. Great for meetings. Service varied. Had to ask twice for coffee. Delicious lunch - small servings.

“Thank you so much for a special lunch!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We visited just before Christmas for lunch - in New York on our honeymoon from London. The view was absolutely amazing and the hotel/restaurant is beautiful, but it was the service that really shone for us. Our waitress, Honeylynn, was so friendly and warm, and brought us a complimentary platter of strawberries dipped in chocolate and other delicious goodies, to congratulate us on our wedding. The assistant manager even came out to offer her personal congratulations too. It was a real highlight of our wonderful trip; thank you very much to all involved.

“Exceptional service and fabulous views”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Celebrating my older daughter's birthday with afternoon tea in the lobby lounge was a perfect way to spend a couple of hours during a five day trip to New York earlier this month. An excellent choice made by younger daughter which was booked via our hotel (Park South hotel - also recently reviewed). Lounge has brilliant views over the south west corner of central park (located on 35th floor) with a choice of seating - comfortable sofas for taking cocktails or tables and chairs more suited to the taking of lunch or afternoon tea. Tea consisted of a choice of tea, sandwiches, scones, petit fours and on our visit an additional treat of fruit with a lit candle for the birthday girl. Service was excellent, attentive without being fussy and the atmosphere was very calm and relaxed. The hotel itself looks to be of exceptional quality usually judged by day guests by the standard of the facilities, the ladies classroom was very clean, well stocked with soaps, handstand and towels. Would definitely recommend any New York visitor to go for tea, book in advance to avoid disappointment. Not the cheapest of treats but probably the most memorable of this trip. Will definitely go again on next trip.
