We usually stay in chain hotels, so we were very pleasantly surprised by our choice on Hotwire where we got a "deal" on an upper east side hotel. I loved the fact that The Franklin is in a residential neighborhood, a plus after a busy day working in the city. The hotel had instant appeal, from the retro awning that greeted us upon our arrival, to the front desk gal who accommodated our request of a king size bedroom. We had a room overlooking 87th street on the 4th floor. We did not have to use the AC (window unit and probably noisy), the room was small but very nicely appointed with a window bench and a pretty chandelier over the bed. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathrooms was impeccably clean, with gleaming marble tile and beautiful new looking fixtures. Loved the Bvlgari toiletries. I'm glad we both had carryon luggage and not big suitcases. We enjoyed the complimentary cocktail hour in the downstairs lobby, as well as the morning breakfast. A great choice for us.
