I was in New York on business and a friend in the hotel business recommended the Hotel Wales to me.
I didn't know anything about it before staying there but would definitely stay again.
The first thing I noticed was that even before I'd got out of my taxi someone from the hotel came out to meet me and help with my luggage. The guy on reception (can't remember his name) was efficient and friendly and before I knew it I was in a warm (this was the middle of Winter), very clean and well sized room.
For a NYC hotel the room size was pleasing, and my bathroom was pretty well sized as well.
The hotel is located a stones throw from Central Park and I enjoyed a nice walk (some people like a jog) around the reservoir before my meetings.
I'd definitely recommend this hotel to business travellers and holidaymakers alike. It's a great find if you're looking for a well located property with a personal customer service experiece that you just don't get in those large chains.
