This hotel rates high for location because it is across the street from the Waldorf Astoria, which puts it five blocks from the Rockefeller Center, 11 blocks from Times Square and Broadway, one block off Park Avenue, three blocks off Fifth Avenue and all of the shops and ten blocks from Central Park. The nearest subway is six blocks away at Grand Central Station. The rooms are average and the restaurant is very overpriced with a very limited selection. The exercise are on the roof (enclosed) is nice with a view of 49th and Lexington Ave. There is no pool or spa, a very, very small gift shop and little else. Fortunately there are plenty of restaurants very close by in all price ranges. The rooms are okay. Ours had a king bed, a refrigerator and coffee maker. Smaller than most rooms you find in less expensive hotels. The service was acceptable but not exceptional. Don't eat here unless you like to spend $70 for very little food. I recommend you book the room as part of a package if you are flying to NYC. Marriott and most of the airlines have packages available that save you over booking just the room. I booked through American Airlines and got the room, air and a private car from and to LaGuardia airport for far less than the room alone would have cost. We were able to walk everywhere except the 9/11 memorial. we used the subway to go there.
