I looked for a hotel in Manhattan for quite awhile. My decision came down to a hotel that had larger suite type room that were outside of the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. The Conrad did not disappoint. Our visit was over the July 4th holiday weekend - 4 night stay. Upon arrival, the bellhops were very friendly upon our arrival via private limo. Check-in was quick and painless. The front desk answered our questions and sent us to the concierge for our entertainment needs. The concierge was extremely helpful in identifying wants and needs during our stay. After that my wife and I headed to the lobby Loppy Doopy bar for a drink. Not cheap, but what should I expect - its NYC. The atmosphere within the lobby is very relaxing and quiet within the giant atrium. After drinks, we headed up to our room. I am a Hilton Honors member and I was given a suite upgrade at a very nominal cost. The suites here are huge, over 700/ft. The rooms are very modern with tasteful decor. There is a living room with a sectional, desk area, bar area, and chair alcove. The bath has only a single vanity, a deep soaking tub - wife loved it, large rain shower. The commode had it own room which is great when we had friend in our room. The bedroom had an enormous closet and good sized bed area with a great bed. The coffee maker was the new single cup machine which was great for me and my wife. The is a rooftop bar which overlooks the Hudson which was great. With a cool breeze and a drink, this is where you go to relax with friends. We also enjoyed a lunch at Atrio - the wine bar/restaurant. Very tasty lunch at a reasonable price.
Negatives for me, none really. All staff I dealt with was extremely helpful and very attentive to my needs. From the bellman, front desk, concierge, bar, management, housekeeping, etc. I had interactions with all of them, my concerns were immediately addressed and resolved with a smile. Some may consider this a negative, but it is what sold me on The Conrad - it's LOCATION! It is just across from a park and the Hudson River is within 200ft. The Freedom Tower and 911 Memorial are just around the corner. There are places to eat and entertainment right here. There is a ferry just across the street on the river. The main subway coming in JFK is right around the corner - within 1/2mi. Wall Street is 1/2mi away. Chinatown is a 1mi away. 30 Rockefeller or Times Sq is a 20min subway ride. Basically everything is easily accessed from a walk, subway, or cab ride. I will stay here again and have no desire to stay at any other hotel in NYC. Other areas may have the NYC VIBE - it's more like a neighborhood feel. The Conrad is a tranquil place amongst the jungle of Manhattan.
