The hotel is clean and new looking because . . . its new. They made a lot of a narrow building footprint, but let's be clear. There is no pool. No spa. No gym. No activity room for kids. No views (front rooms look out at an unattractive office bldg and the rear views are of . . . the back of an unattractive building). No common areas period, except for a tiny lobby area and an ok bar/restaurant behind the lobby and the hallway outside your room. That, plus your room, is it, folks, so don't get yourself all worked up. The location is good if you would like to be near Grand Central Terminal, reasonable walking distance to Times Square or a short to medium walk from your business meeting in Midtown Manhattan, but you are 15 blocks from the southern end of Central Park and much farther still from the shopping district on the upper east side, Lincoln Center, downtown, etc. You are, essentially, in the South end of the central business district of Manhattan. With a lack of amenities and a location near office towers, its a good location for a business traveler, but not ideal for romantic getaways, those expecting a full-service hotel with amenities or families who need a hotel that's more than a room. These generic "wow" reviews are not specific enough to give you a sense of where the hotel is located or what the hotel really is (an exceedingly narrow, tall, boutique hotel with a clean, modern look but no amenities). Nothing wrong with that, certainly, but clearly no 5-star property, as implied over and over here, considering the abundance of amenity-packed, luxurious hotels in New York with views and superior locations.
