The reasons why Ivy Terrance is terrific are simple.
The location is great, just a block from the subway, near interesting restaurants, Bloomingdale's, and much much more.
The room is beautiful. The bed is firm and extremely comfortable (which is most often not the case, since I have a bad back). The kitchen area, which is sparkling clean, is exactly what one needs to make a cup of tea or, for that matter, anything. The owners provide the tea and other good things.
The breakfast food and the complimentary wine were a lovely touch.
It had everything one could need and more.
Last, there's a lovely terrace that you access from the front of the room (facing 58th St), where one can skyline gaze. It was a bit too cold to sit outside and read the paper, but in warmer weather, it would have been great.
Both my friend and I have bad backs, so Jeff carried our luggage up the couple of stairs.
All in all, I can't imagine anything better.
