Eighth Avenue used to be a no go area. It's still a bit tacky. But the new Intercontinental is anything but. The staff are wonderfully welcome; the rooms are calm and serene; the beds are comfortable and the shower as strong as an American shower should be. My only gripe would be that the restaurant lacks atmosphere - but with so many excellent places to eat within walking distance, it would be criminal to rely on the hotel's own restaurant.
