After Vegas and the hotel Vdara, arriving late here we were a little disappointed. It was thundering and lightening outside and the rain was very heavy, so not the best introduction to New York. Having said that, the next morning, it began to grow on us, and although the room smelled a little foisty, and our room was the only one of the 3 that only had cold air, when we needed hot to dry our clothes out, we warmed to it. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was well stocked with toiletries and a lovely powerful shower. As a woman I always look for a plug near a mirror for doing hair and putting on makeup, this room was sadly lacking and I had to use the bathroom, which was awkward when my husband was also trying to get ready.
I must mention Ty, the doorman that was there for the 3 days we were, he was lovely, and gave us a lot of information and help about New York etc.
The bar is not wonderful, as there are only 4 stools against it and nowhere else to sit, and the coffee shop is used by the public as well as hotel guest's so always queues for a coffee. Having said that, guests have free tea and coffee throughout their stay, which is a bonus, and after getting back late one night, one of our party asked for a cup of coffee and they took a kettle, coffee, milk etc up to his room and replenished them every day.
This hotel is in a fantastic place for sightseeing, near Central Park and Times Square, Carnegie Hall was on the corner of the street, and the underground was only 5 minutes walk away. If we had started our tour of America here, we would have thought it was good immediately, a typical City Hotel, but very friendly.
