This is a very nice hotel IF you're a business traveler. My husband and I stayed in a double with a king bed (the bed was extremely comfortable!). There was a large built-in desk (unnecessarily large?) but only one chair in the room--a desk chair. So a second person had no choice but to sit on the bed. I asked for an additional chair and one was brought immediately but it was small and shabby and not at all comfortable. There was inadequate room for two persons' clothes and the armoire was not lit so it was difficult to see inside. In fact, the whole room was too dark--no overhead light and fairly dim bedside and desk lights. The bar area, like the desk, was really too large for what was essentially a small room.
Here are the great features of this hotel: wonderful location (very central), excellent friendly service, and a second-floor lounge with lots of comfy furniture and an expresso machine available to guests 24/7. Rolls, juice, and fruit are set out every day for breakfast (not a munificent continental but adequate); sweets set out mid-afternoon; and cheese, crackers, and fruit in the early evening. Very, very welcome in expensive New York!!!More
