Let's face the facts shall we? NYC is Expensive, with a capital E. This was a work trip, so I was spending their dough, not mine. But still, I feel like it needs to be spent wisely, so I stayed here. At almost $300 a night, that's not cheap for a room that felt like it was less than 30% bigger than the bed (a double), was. However, it was clean and comfortable. Just not 'luxury' in any sense of the word, and when I spend that much money per night, that's what I expect. Just not in NYC.
Would I stay there again? Sure, not a problem. It's a great location for me, due to its proximity to the office. And on Park Ave, you can find some great restaurants and shopping if you are so inclined. The available small continental breakfast in the morning was better than nothing and not bad either. The staff was cordial, not overly friendly and not objectionable. They had very little impact on my stay. One of my colleagues complained about the doors being locked up at 11pm, and not able to get in or out - would’ve been annoying had it happened to me.
One downside worth mentioning is the stairs – they were so steep, it seemed like you were climbing a small cliff, with a handrail. Not to be used with luggage of any kind in my opinion. The elevator was slow and small but it worked just fine.
If this location works for you, then this hotel is not a bad option – just don’t expect a whole lot for your money. But you may find that you’re spending a lot less of it here, than you might at another place not far from this one, so the discount might make it all worthwhile; it did for me!
