I stayed here for one night a few days before Christmas. The location is amazing, being a few blocks from 5th Ave, Rockefeller Plaza, and Times Square. The #6 Subway line is literally right outside the door of the hotel which is convenient because you can get uptown or downtown very easily. Of course, each guest gets a giant, warm, chocolate chip cookie (with nuts) when they check-in. It was delicious, even with the nuts, though I do think they should offer one without nuts for those who have allergies.
Crabtree & Eveyln products were offered in the bathrooms and the rooms were of decent size. We had a room with 2 double beds and they were comfortable. I only have a couple of complaints. One: the room needed a good vacumming in the corners and I kept finding long hairs on the towels and floor of the bathroom. The housekeeping could be better. The other complaint was how loud the doors were when they closed. They could wake you from a sound sleep, even if the door closing was down the hall.
We were able to store our bags with the bellhops while we did sightseeing and shopping after checking out, which was a nice convenience, for $2 per bag.
