Rooms are clean and comfortable. Although we didn't spend much time in the room, having a kitchen and living room made our stay feel more like being at a home that at a hotel. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The location makes it very easy to get to Central Park, 9/11 memorial, midtown restaurants by subway or cab.

The apartments are spacious and have an authentic NYC feel complete with huge american fridge, cooker etc. The complimentary breakfast was better than we expected- choice of juices, tea, coffee( a bit weak for us Europeans!) Cereals, yoghurt, fresh waffles, fresh bagels, pastries, scrambled eggs and sausage / bacon all self-service. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Ideal location for exploring mid-town and upper manhattan. Can walk to central park, Times Square, Chrysler building, Fifth Avenue etc.
There is an excellent Italian restaurant beside a take- away pizzeria next door to the hotel, frequented by locals rather than tourists( photos adorn the walls of all the celebrities and sports people who have eaten there- my son spotted Pele on one of them)
We only have one gripe about our stay- the hotel faces the service entrance to a large Marriott hotel and as a result there were frequent deliveries of supplies and collections of laundry and rubbish -sometimes at 3a.m. and always in huge super noisy trucks. The supplied ear plugs are ESSENTIAL if you want to get any sleep. We used them and they work! The beds were comfortable.
We were on the first floor and as a result our appartment was always serviced late in the afternoon which we found inconvenient as this was when we generally returned to the apartment for a cup of tea, to use the toilet ( they are few and far between in NYC) and to shower and get ready for the evening.

Room Tip: Request a room on a higher floor , rear-facing.

We were looking for a hotel that offered a 2 bedroom suite and this is most reasonably priced in midtown that we found. Was plenty of room for party of 5. We had penthouse and had the most amazing and huge outdoor space which was really shocking in NYC. There were loungers and large table where you could eat. We just loved it and I almost gave 5 stars just for that reason. Did not as indoors could use a little refurbishing, like the heating system which was loud, furniture a bit old, bathrooms run down a bit. We did not notice street noise unless windows or door was open. Rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. Location is perfect. I would highly recommend the penthouse just for that great outdoor space.

From the moment we were met at Reception by Mr Sharma, the 4 of us knew it was going to be good. We had a 2-bedroom apartment, with 2 large bedrooms, very large comfortable lounge/diner, well-equipped kitchen and clean modern bath/shower room.

Unusually, there was a very good breakfast room, with loads of hot and cold choices, free newspapers (NYST on Sunday!) and again, friendly and helpful staff; but the waffle mixture and the powdered egg-based omelette need some attention.

Just outside were 2 very good quality and popular Italian run restaurants. You might have to queue if peak time of 7 - 7.30 PM but are made to feel valued as you walk through their doors.

And it is so convenient for Rockefeller, Grand Central, and even Central Park was a pleasant walk away.

But being opposite a Marriott which had laundry and refuse service in the middle of the night and on a popular cross-town route, the noise level was very high from 12 midnight until about 4 AM. The earplugs supplied were useless so take your own if, like me, you sleep lightly; my wife said it did not affect her but she sleeps easily.

Two things the hotel should think about at next refurbishment: first the central heating system is so old and noisy and it leaks around the radiators; second, one lift/elevator is not enough to provide a good service.

We would happily stay there again

Room Tip: If there are rooms away from the street, go for one of them!!

Thank you for mentioning our service and our service staff (Sammy will be honored) and pointing out the many items offered at our breakfast.

We do realize the sounds of the city at night are difficult to adjust to and we are looking at various options to alleviate that concern. Our eggs are not powdered they are a prepared product, not anything mixed from a powder. We are glad you enjoyed our other food items. We are constrained for any additional elevator.

We appreciate your loyalty to our brand. We hope to see you again soon.

We stayed here for three nights over Easter. Family of four in a one bedroom apartment. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. Kitchen was really handy. Nice to have coffee supplied for the coffee maker. My girls said the sofa bed was a little uncomfortable, could have done with a mattress topper or similar, but it didn't affect their sleep too much. We were on floor 8 at the back and didn't have too much noise at night. Breakfast good but breakfast room tiny and we didn't manage to sit and eat together, we had to eat in two's and take trays to our room - only problem there was that the one and only lift very busy in the mornings so breakfast was cold by the time we got it to our room. However, that was a minor problem in an overall fantastic hotel. Location is great, short walk to Rockerfeller and Grand Central for the subway. Supermarket 5 minutes walk. If you have kids there is a great playground called Macarthur playground on 49th street - walk directly east about 3 blocks until you're right at the river and you'll find it. Great for the little ones to let off some steam - and it has a loo!
