More details below, but the reason this has to be one of the best place for kids is the Bistro, a casual bar restaurant which takes up most of the 4th floor. Elevators are key access, so it's guests only. A large sunny space with couches, tables, chairs, four computers, tvs, and full bar, Limited menu food including children's menu. The thing is, on March 14, 15, 16, day or evening, it was so open with just a few guests that little kids could run around safely (my opinion) without causing problems, while adults drank and snacked.
Our room was 1815. Space was 30x13, includes bathroom. Sort of cruise ship size. Two double beds with good linens. Bath was compact, brightly lit. Water saver toilet didn't "clean" well. New hotel, buit from ground up started in 2009, probably stalled in the recession. Opened in Jan, I think. Great price. For us 209 for double, king would have been 179. Fine location at 54th and Broadway. Lobby has no place to sit, but we were able to check in at 11:30. We are Gold but I don't think room was an upgrade. Safe, coffee and fridge are standard. V pleasant staff, of course. It's a Marriott.
