Cheap hotel rooms in parts of Manhattan that are within walking distance of the main tourist sights are non-existent. Once you've faced up to the expenditure involved you may as well 'go for it' and book something that won't be a disappointment. This fits the bill. It is located on 6th Avenue, just down from Central Park and within a couple of minutes' walk from MoMA, Radio City, Central Park, The Rockefeller Centre (including Top of the Rock), the 'nice bits' of 5th Avenue, several theatres, and lots of good places to eat (from excellent deli's to some really good restaurants). The hotel itself is huge but manages to be welcoming; the staff are well-trained and helpful. We book a room on the executive floor which is bigger than most, and gives access to the exec lounge. This lounge used to be on the 44th floor and have, from one window, impressive views up 6th to the west side of Central Park. Sadly, they have moved the lounge to the ground floor (obviously utilising the room liberated for hiring out to private functions!), but it's still a nice place to sit, drink some free coffee, use the free WiFi and nibble a free cookie. The afternoon snacks from 5-7pm are a bit of a feeding-frenzy and aren't that good quality but are more than acceptable. There is an honesty bar between these times for beer and wine, both reasonably priced. There is breakfast available there in the mornings but we preferred to have something more substantial in the (oddly named) Market Place restaurant elsewhere in the hotel. We've used the hotel twice now and haven't been disappointed. Why not 5*s? Well, the rooms are pleasant enough, certainly clean, and the beds are v comfortable, but some of the decor is looking just a little tired (eg the wall paper in the corridors on the 40th floor needs replacing). Overall - recommended, and we'll certainly consider using the hotel again on our next stay.
