Just got home after a three night stay at the Andaz 5th Ave Hotel in New York. We had booked a King Room from May 9th through to the 12th, but when we arrived at the hotel they had upgraded us to a splash suite (room 905) as my wife had mentioned it was a surprise for my 40th Birthday. The suite was amazing and probably the best room I have ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Emilio and Jo (I think that was her name). The hotel is very new and contemporary and in very good condition (I felt like we were the first people to use our room). The other great thing about this hotel is the location. Situated on 5th Ave, opposite the New York Library, Times Square, Grand Central Station, The Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building are all within 5 minutes walking distance, making it a great base to start out from. I could actually lay in bed at night and look up at the Empire State Building. How many hotels can you do that in? We only ate breakfast in the hotel once and whilst it was very, very good it isn't cheap. Ham & eggs and an orange juice and porridge and an orange juice with one serving of toast and marmalde came to over $70 with the tip. But as I said it was very good and I suppose it is to be expected of a hotel of this standard with the location it has. I could not fault this hotel in any way. They're obviously very focussed on giving their customers a 1st class service.....and they pull it off brilliantly in my opinion.
