Stayed here for first 5 nights of our holiday in NY as wanted to be close to Central Park; we were not disappointed. Apartment block is 3 mins from the park (which should be an absolute must on any NY visit). Reception staff were incredibly cheerful and everyone was helpful and accommodating.
The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast (not cooked but very nice indeed!), complimentary afternoon coffee and fab cakes, scones, etc. If it is depleted just ask/knock at/on the kitchen door and the staff will replenish immediately. Not sure about the evening spread being complimentary but on the first evening we were pleasantly surprised by a superb spread of cold meats, bread, salads, etc - wow! Apples are available at anytime on the 2nd floor.
Decor is stone, slate and steel; very modern but cool. The apartments are modern, spacious and very comfortable, containing all you require - just what I would expect in a serviced apartment.
Free internet access with PCs or Macs is in the eating area so you can have a coffee and cake and browse your emails.
My only gripes would be the lack of natural light; we were on the 5th floor and I suspect it wasn't such an issue higher up; and the noise of the AC unit outside of the window. If I had paid the full price I would have expected an apartment on a higher floor; Priceline customers are more likely to be on less desirable floors (but not always).
I always consider my measure of any stay is the willingness to stay at the same place again..yes please...just higher up!
Would/have recommend(ed) this place to all of my friends.
