Over the years I have stayed in about 20 hotels in New York, some better, some worse. Lately I have grown to love and appreciate the Andaz hotel chian - I love the way they do things.The Andaz 5th Avenue is my favorite NYC hotel so far. The location is perfect: 5th Avenue at 41st Street, right accross the street from the NYC Public Library and Bryant Park, 5 minutes from Grand Central Station, a 10-minute walk to Times Square. The staff is young, energetic, and, most importantly, SMILING, PLEASANT AND HELPFUL. This does not feel like a huge, impersonal hotel. Our room, a Splash Suite, was HUGE, modern, elegant, with the centerpiece being a huge, kidney-shaped, free-standing bathtub situated in the middle of a huge dressing area. My favorite Andaz amenity: the FREE mini-bar, which is restocked daily. I love a hotel that does NOT charge a guest $8.00 for a bottle of water. The restaurant was, at first glance, a bit unusual, but after exporing it a bit we found it is a small farm-to-table restaurant. We ate 4 meals here and all were wonderful. Hearty, healthy breakfasts, strong coffee and delicious lunches, all with an emphasis on organic ingredients. We will definitely stay here again.
