Undeniably great location, within walking distance to many Manhattan landmarks and a great base for a NYC shopping and sightseeing trip. Cabs easy to get even during peak periods and right next to Grand Central. Area is safe, we felt very safe walking (stumbling) back to the hotel late at night.
When you walk into the hotel you undoubtedly realise you are in a LARGE hotel - this is definitely a 'Grand' Hyatt (rather than a Park Hyatt or Hyatt Regency) - lobby has a very open floorplan and service is polite if not brisk and impersonal. Lifts are very busy but pretty speedy, so no complaints there. The trek from the lift to the room can be a hike, given the hotel size.
Rooms were very generously sized for midtown and on the 36th floor, no street noise and great views of the NYC concrete jungle! Decor of the rooms and comfort of the beds were exactly what you'd expect from a Hyatt hotel - i.e. solid, tasteful, and comfortable, if not grandiosely luxurious.
Stayed here for a week on a family vacation in January 2013 on Hyatt points, not sure if I would fork out cash for this place. This is undoubtedly a hotel that caters mostly to the business traveller.
