This is a different hotel than others. The have private apartments and bedrooms mixed with the hotel rooms. They have only 50 rooms offered as a hotel. This makes all the staff to have personal approach to everyone.
The location is amazing, difficult to find a better one.
I got a room with a modern setup, was very good. The bed and pillows were perfect. They offer great variety of amenities in the bathroom.
In general the hotel offers you a perfect NY high end experience. It's very traditional, they even have guys operating the lifts!
On the negative side, they don't have their own restaurant. The offer 20% discount at Harry Cipriani which us next door but the place is too formal. I tried to have breakfast after some workout outside but got rejected because you can't wear shorts...
I think that for that money you have some other good options in the area but a visit to the sherry Netherland is a different kind of stayMore
