This hotel is in an absolutely perfect vacation for the New York newcomer. Walking distance to Central Park, 5th Avenue, Radio City, Broadway shows, Grand Central Station, the Met and a wealth of excellent restaurants.
We stayed here on business. The business catering staff were incredible. The food was well done, but our meeting planner scheduled "build your own sandwiches" too many days in a row. The meeting room and audio were good.
Internet was sufficient, when purchased.
A few of my colleagues saw John Voight - so there may be better rooms than the one I had.
My room was on the 22nd floor and there were stains in the carpet, the nightstand light bulb was almost falling out, the hair dryer broke (and was replaced by maintenance). The bed was comfortable enough, and it was otherwise a typical mid-range hotel with typical amenities. I could hear my neighbors opening their doors and talking all night.
I had to call the front desk to have them bring up ice. Housekeeping didn't bother to fill it and there is no turn down service.
Dry cleaning was typically expensive. There are CVS and dry cleaners within walking distance if you need it and want to save some money.
The elevators are very fast.
