The hotel's location, within 4 minutes walk of 72nd St subway (Lines 1,2 &3), is great. Excellent food shop opposite. 12 minutes walk to central park, 15 to Lincoln Centre.
We had a king suite on the 15th floor facing east. it was great, just what we needed. having a separate sitting room is a boon for city holidays. We used the small kitchenette for preparing breakfast, and snacks that need little work. Although it has a full sized cooker, there is not really sufficient space or equipment for preparing major meals. i wouldn't want to anyway. I was on holiday! Staff clear away dishes left in the sink & replace them with fresh ones each day. Bed was very comfortable. Room was quiet with windows shut.
We were first allocated a spacious suite on the 6th floor, but it faced a brick wall and was dark. We had booked 6 months in advance, but the manager took on board our disappointment and moved us the following day. thank you!
Warning for European travellers. In New York taxes are added on top of the quoted price. So our room cost $385 but we ended up paying near to $450 per night. The same applies in shops and restaurants - taxes on top of quoted price. :-(
We would stay at the hotel again if we returned to NY.
