Overall, the hotel and experience was great. The rooms are really big for NYC. We had the junior suite which has around 650 square feet (I think). We actually had two of them as we were a travelling family of 5. I noticed on the last day that I actually preferred the layout of the other suite better. The bathroom was situated more between the bedroom and the living room (making it easier for the person sleeping on the sofa bed to use the bathroom during the night without waking up whoever is in the bedroom) and it had a dresser in the closet in the bedroom. One of my complaints is that there was no dresser in my bedroom. We did find one in the closet near the front door of the suite but that was inconvenient for use to store clothing in. So I had to keep my socks and so forth in my suitcase in the bedroom. Not ideal as I really wanted to unpack everything.
The shower was great but our tub was slow to drain. I never reported to the staff. We'd just get busy and forget about it. I don't think our other room had that problem.
The location truly was superb, especially if you don't want to stay in Times Square but still want to be close. We walked everywhere. Literally. We walked up to Central Park twice. We walked to Rockefeller and to Times Square numerous times. We walked down to Macy's. We walked to Gramercy Park area. In five days, we walked about 36 miles (according to my pedometer).
The bathroom had a nook of unused space. Because there wasn't much in the way of counter space, I moved a little seating ottoman from the bedroom into the bathroom to pick up an extra "counter". My suggestion to management would be to put a small table in there. I would also suggest a dresser of some sort in all bedrooms.
