We booked this place after reading the reviews here and it definitely is as good as everyone says.
As it was a year of big birthdays for the both of us, I cheekily requested a room with a view. Where they made no promises, they did say they'd put a note on the file and when we first looked out our 31st floor window, they had clearly made the effort for us. The hand made birthday card and cakes was also a really nice wee touch.
We woke on our first day to see the sun coming up behind the Empire State building on one side and a great view down the Hudson and Jersey on the other. It was a great start to the holiday.
The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly and genuinely seem interested in what your experiencing on your trip. The rooms are plenty big enough and well equipped with everything you really need for a stay in a city like NYC. The beds are also really comfy, which is a must in this city too. Sleep is precious in NYC after all!!
People say the street is quite dodgy, what with the parole office a few doors along, but it's really not that bad. There are certainly dodgier streets in Manhattan.
Its in a great location to experience the city. It's in between 8th and 9th so you've got good north and south bound avenues to get taxi's. It's far enough away from Broadway mania but close enough to walk there if you need a fix.
Great location, comfortable rooms and extremely hospitable staff. This hotel is great and we'll definitely stay there again.
