I'll preface my comments be saying I'm not overly picky with hotel rooms. My wife is another story. Went for a weekend with friends. The service at this hotel was outstanding. Our suite was ready way before check-in but when we got there my wife was bummed as there was no bath tub. She's high maintenance, what can I say? One call to the front desk and they hooked us up with another one immediately that had a tub and we were set. The suites are the size of a normal smallish hotel room anywhere else but hey that's NY. The bed, however, was great. We slept very well. The showers all have the stupid half open set-up which I just makes no sense. When looking closely, you could tell a full door used to be there but they decided to be 'trendy'. What's not trendy is having to cover the toilet paper holder to avoid the open shower splashing it. Ergonomics people....get some. The hotel lobby was gorgeous and a nice place to chill. Location was great..we were able to walk to many places. I'd heard about noise problems from the bar if the room was high up, but we were on the 8th floor and never heard a word. Speaking of the bar....we hit the rooftop loungeone night and it was wall to wall packed. Hard to tell much. Based on the location and service, I'd stay there again.
