I'll be honest, I didn't really expect much from the hotel. This was another work stay and was one of the very few options available.
The hotel was formerly the New York Helmsley hotel. It had been renovated and Starwood did an amazing job. I had a corner room and was surprised at how large it was. When you walk in, there was a bit of a "hall" where you turned face the room. I had a great view where I could even see the 59th St. bridge not to far off. Walking into the room, it smelled fresh as if they sprayed the room with a clean neutral scent. The bed was comfortable - very important since I was there for 7 nights - and was knocked out every night
From check-in to check-out, you get friendly service. One morning I called the front desk for something and received it within 10 minutes. The front desk then called me back to make sure that it arrived. I loved it.
The hotel also has a full gym - you get treadmills, elliptical, free weights and machines - even the assisted smith squat machine as well as complimentary green apples It was never difficult at all to catch a cab and there was also a Starbucks a few steps away.
I really enjoyed my stay. I will definitely be selecting this hotel for my next stay in the city!
