Fantastic location and great, modern decore with rooms in 3 sizes and price ranges. Ideal for Manhattan bound tourists or business folk.
Helpful staff, visitor's lounge in 2nd floor has 2 free computers with internet and printer -- available 24/7, a faux fireplace with lounge chairs in one corner and another cluster of sofa chairs by a large TV screen - for gatherings with friends, relatives or work colleagues.
Across the street is Rockerfeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, NBC Studios and 60 seconds away is Saks Fith Avenue and New York's version of the Magnificent (shopping) Mile.It is also just 10-12 minutes by foot to nearby Time Square and the theater district.
No restaurant on site but who cares as there are 3 morning-lunch eateries on the block, including our favorite, Teresa's Brick oven Pizza and Cafe, 6 or more evening restaurants within 30 second walk on the block and across the road at Rockefeller Center, and dozens of well known fast food chain mini-outlets underneath by the subway. And if you need a drug store or food market, there is one on the block. Everything is just within seconds by foot.
If you need to recharge or use electricity for laptops, tablets, etc., don't worry as there are electrical powerbars and MP3/MP4 ports by the night table and also by the 5 foot long desk -- to handle any traveller or business person's needs. And of course all rooms have free wi-fi.
Finally, if your cell phone from overseas is too costly to use or you have signal isues in downtown concrete towers,-- mine worked fine -- there are 2 land lines in the room - one on the work desk and a wireless model beside the bed.
There is also a complimentary fitness room if you have the time or inclination.
Only downside is no bathtubs, just oversized showers big enough to hold two people.
PS: Breakfast-lunch eateries in Manhattan do NOT normally have public washrooms - so being able to get back to your hotel room quickly is a plus.
