We (myself, wife and 13 year-old grand-daughter) found the location, right near Grand Central Station, very convenient. Our room suited us well, except that the carpet was dirty. The bathroom was clean. The front desk staff were very helpful.
I had an unsatisfactory experience at the restaurant. The waitress placed a chit for about $60 on the table and without thinking too much I got out a $10 tip. Before I rose, however, I reflected that $60 was a bit steep for the modest amount consumed. So I looked at the bill in detail and saw the line, "18% gratuity included." So I repocketed my $10 bill and said to the hovering waitress, "I see that the tip is already included." "If you insist," she snarled in bad temper. It was clear that she had every intention of double dipping, and I wondered if the hotel was not complicit in this practice. Gee, I hate the American tipping practice - why can't they pay decent wages and have the prices all-inclusive? In any case, we made no further use of the hotel restaurant during our stay.
