This hotel certainly lived up to expectations, providing a large amount of space in our suites in a pretty central location. This allowed us to walk to Times Square, Fifth Avenue, Grand Central, Rockefeller Plaza, Central Park and access everywhere else via the metro very nearby. The suites have a kitchenette area with a fridge, kettle, microwave and dishwasher (which is used each day by the housekeeping staff to clean any crockery etc used). This meant we could eat in from time to time (loads of places to buy food nearby, as well as restaurants). The staff were excellent at all times - very helpful and friendly. The beds were fantastic - never been so comfortable anywhere, and all four of us agreed (and we usually don't). The bathroom was on the small side, but in fact was clean, practical and had everything you would expect in a good hotel. I thought that the hotel looked good value compared to others of similar standard nearby, but wondered what the catch would be. Seems there isn't one. I would definitely go back.
We booked via internet with a written request for 2 suites near to each other,the double with a view - and that is what we got. We were given free WiFi even though that was not shown as part of our booking.
