Most travelers have heard it: "Hey, how much time do you spend in your room anyway?" The idea seems to be that you're only going to sleep there so having a small or basic room (or cruise ship cabin) isn't a big deal. Well, 70 Park is your chance to test that out.
On the plus side the bed was extremely comfortable, both the HVAC and shower were excellent, the room was clean, attractive, and well maintained, wireless service very good, and the hotel staff friendly and helpful. Even the coffee in the lobby was good.
On the other hand, the room was among the smallest and darkest we've had in Manhattan and the bathroom, well, tiny. Our "queen deluxe" room had neither bedside night tables (probably because there wouldn't have been room for even small ones) nor reading lights over or near the bed. The only seating was a desk chair, so you or your companion has to sit or lie on the bed when not sleeping, or when watching the (flat panel but not HD) television.
All in all the 70 Park seemed to us like a reasonable choice for a couple if all you want from your hotel is a good night's sleep and hot shower in the morning. If you also need a place to recharge, read, watch a movie, or even sit comfortably for a bit during the day, you might find the 70 Park's queen deluxe room close quarters indeed.
