Best hotel I've ever stayed in. We booked it because it looked beautiful, warm, welcoming and nothing like all the other clinical corporates nearby! It lived up to all our expectations. Service was friendly and relaxed but everything got done, right. Breakfast was a small but lovely and efficient operation. Hot bagels with cream cheese, heaven! Wine & cheese between 5&8pm is such a nice touch! People don't seen to take advantage so it doesn't ever become happy-houresque... everyone pops in and out for a nibble and some drinks, we got chatting to people whilst there which we wouldn't have otherwise! We stayed on the 5th floor (maths & science) in the dinosaur room. Which was the second smallest size i believe but plenty big enough for a city break! Location is very central so perfect for visitors to NYC as you can walk everywhere from here, or if your feet are tired its right next to grand central station! That said your nicer eateries and shops are down town, Greenwich village & Brooklyn were our favourites to avoid the tourist traps. Hot drinks, biscuits & pastries available 24/7 in the reading room which is so much nicer than the normal in-room rubbish you get with instant coffee and uht milk and nothing to stop you taking your hot drinks up to your room (we did every night)! And don't forget the bar on the 14th floor either, great atmosphere for late drinks. Stay here, you won't regret it.
