I don't review often, and then only at both ends of the spectrum - either very good or very bad. Stayed at the Bryant Park for a weekend and it is *fabulous*. Nothing to criticise really, for a Manhattan midtown hotel.
It has a great location right on the park, the subway is fifty yards away, and, the city being very walkable in this area, it's not far from theatres, music, art, food, in almost any direction.
I was made very welcome at reception, and later the concierge was extremely helpful, even printing out a map for me to find a particular shop.
The Cellar Bar is convenient and just about right for cocktail hour and post theatre, though note that on Saturday it turns into a club, with a long line (for non-residents - if you're a guest you stroll right in). We did not try the Koi restaurant, though the food that Koi delivered to the room was excellent.
The room is more than comfortable and did not feel small at all, as many NYC places can. The minibar we could have lived on for a week in luxury. The bath and shower were spacious and worked well.
Oh and a nice surprise at checkout, for some of the weekend days they waive the parking fee.
All in all, I tried hard to think of something negative but really, honestly, could not. Well done everyone concerned with this gem of an hotel.
