This is the way all hotels ought to be. I'm in Germany, it's the middle of the night in New York, I am waiting for my flight across the Atlantic. I call the Conrad and tell them I need a car to pick my family and me up at EWR when I arrive later that afternoon their time. Two minutes later, I am off the phone with the hotel arranging my airport pickup and billing the car to my room. It was that simple for me. It was that efficient and done that well by the staff at the Conrad. Thank you Kate Hughes! It didn't stop there. When my family and I arrived an hour later than scheduled because of the trans-Atlantic flight, we were welcomed by a great doorman and bell staff. At the front desk, a very genuine welcome and a request that if we didn't mind waiting a little bit longer, they would secure us a room a little higher up with a better view. We went to the lounge as guests of the hotel while our room was prepared. He didn't leave us there but came over every few minutes to find out how we were doing. While this was going on, the concierge, Mark, arranged for my son, who just graduated from college, to get a haircut and his first shave in weeks from the in house hotel barber. Very efficient there too. Great Barber, haircut and shave at a very reasonable rate, especially for Manhattan. In fact, they did my wife's hair the next day too, and it was terrific. The hotel delivers, if attentions and service are what you value. It is every bit as good and perhaps better than R.C. and some boutique brands. We love this place. The room was quite nice, once you figured out the multiple electronic gizmos for the lights and so forth. Very comfortable beds. extremely fast internet everywhere in the hotel. Numerous restaurants and even a movie, right in the building. Except for the fact that Manhattan lurked out there, the Conrad was a self contained unit. We didn't have to leave. There is a beautiful promenade along the Hudson River right outside the hotel if you must leave and want to escape the hustle of uptown. The staff were universally helpful, obviously well training and good at their jobs. The Conrad is well managed and thought out. We are already planning our next escape at this great spot near Battery Park, what they call New City.
