When I checked in, the ground floor was packed. Flash bulbs were going off everywhere. The gentleman who took me to my room told me about the resident hotel cat, Matilda, and the fact it was her annual birthday celebration. The history of the resident cats at the hotel going back to the 20s or 30s was quite interesting. There was a apparently a cat fashion show as well.
The lobby is nice with a historic feel. I did not like that you are given no choice about having a man take your luggage up to your room with you.
The king room was small. I know it is New York, but it was very small. Good L'Occitane bath products. Comfortable bed. Tiny bathroom. No outside noise heard really at all with a higher floor room. Can hear doors close in surrounding rooms very easily.
The gym is about what you would expect. Not bad, not amazing.
The location is great. About a block from Times Square and plenty of food options around, of course.
The staff was friendly.
