I spent my Xmas long weekend this year at NYC and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. You probably cannot ask for a better location than this hotel, it is located right across from the NY Public Library which provides easy access to major shopping stores on 5th Avenue, as well as quick hop onto the subway system (3 mins walk maximum). Speaking of the hotel, the living area is on the small side, although I can understand it being in NYC. The bathroom is fantastic, it has very trendy design and the size can probably fit 4 to 5 people at the same time. The only negative about the bathroom is its "open shower concept", which I had a hard time enjoying as I keep on checking whether I flooded the floor or not.
I actually write this review after I have visited the Andaz West Hollywood Hotel during the New Year long weekend such that I can make a fair comparison. Assuming they are directly run by Hyatt (i.e. not franchised), this 5th Avenue Hotel is WAY better - it is really design to be trendy, fashionable and user-friendly.
On a related note, I checked with two of the hosts there that diamond members could enjoy complimentary breakfast. HOWEVER, upon checkout, I was told that it is complimentary breakfast with $75 limit. I wished those two hosts could have mentioned it.
