This hotel was absolutly perfect. we were staying in a standard room on the 14th floor (out of 15 floors). We had never stayed in new york before and had heard the hotel rooms there, as a standard, were pretty small so our room exceded all expectations as it was bigger than alot, if not all, the hotel rooms id stayed in previously. It was spacious and airy and served as a perfect home away from home. We stayed for 10 days so it was important that we were comfortable.
The rooms were cleaned daily, to a very high standard. Linens were cleaned apon request, daily if you wanted and towels replaced daily also.
It had a microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker in the room. we didnt use the microwave but found the fridge really handy for keeping drinks and milk (although provided for coffee, we bought more for cereal).
On the second floor there is a living area which is very comfortable and clean. a place were you can go to use the computers, use the printer, read the newspapers provided, have some complimentive coffee or just relax out of the room if you needed it. The hotel also has complimentary wifi which was so handy for checking things out on our ipods from the room. also there is complementary bottle water on each floor, which was great.
The hotel was in the perfect location for us. within walking distance of times square, right across from the rock (where there is a lovely bar to go at night if you don't want to venture to far at night). There is a pharmacy/ convenience store on the corner of the block which was very handy! Subway station a block away and another a few blocks over, very handy for getting to downtown manhattan or uptown. Within walking distance of central park aswell and right between 5th and 6th avenue! All that and its on a quiet street! Couldnt have asked for much more really.
The staff were all very friendly, apon arrival and throughout our whole stay.
Another thing i must add is, because it is a small hotel there is no waiting on the lift at all, its almost instant! i read in other reviews of hotels that there could be quite a long wait for the elevator because of the number of floors and guests, definatly not a problem here.
Over all, it was excellent. I can see this hotel becoming very popular (as its relatively new) and we were very lucky to have gotten to stay there at the rate we did. we got a bargain!
would stay again and would recommend with confidence to anyone i know, and hope to be back myself.
