This hotel is a bit of Paris without the jet lag....for those of us in the states at least. However, it would be a worthwhile destination where ever it was. This was my second visit in three months, and it was just as special the second time around. First of all, the guys behind the check in desk were still as attentive and helpful; they were professional but at the same time they had a delightful sense of humor.
The hotel has charm with a casual sophistication. For me, it is a welcome change from the many anonymous chain hotels or ( even worse) the hotels with attitude. The rooms are decent sized and the decor is reminiscent of a Parisian botique hotel. So, too, is the library which serves breakfast and is open all day if you want to have a cup of coffee, read the paper,etc. Thoughtful touches abound.
The M subway train is right around the corner; and another subway line is two or three blocks away. That said, the hotel is within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, museums, and shows.
I love the excitememt of NYC, yet I appreciate the sense of calm the Hotel Eysee offers. NYC wth a touch of Paris.....a pretty great combination.
