Instead of driving in for an important morning meeting in Manhattan, the four of us (2 adults, 2 preschoolers) stayed here for a night during Easter week using points (published rates were absolutely crazy for Easter week/Tribeca Film Festival week).
There are many positives about this hotel. The first is that is has been renovated in 2013 and it shows. Front desk staff was very nice and check in was a breeze. The hotel has multiple elevators and all were very fast and spacious. The 12th floor "lobby" is set up like a lounge but there were plenty of places to sit and eat breakfast. It has a modern coffeehouse feel to it (bookshelves, tables with power outlets, comfy couches, flat screen TVs and lots of space to move around). The staff at the breakfast bar was nice too and delivered your order to where you were seating. (e.g. They find you). I don't think they serve lunch or dinner though but the space is always open.
Our king room with sofa bed was on the 22nd floor and overlooked 3rd ave. Very spacious for Manhattan and clean. Bathroom is clean (nothing broken, good water pressure for shower and toilet flush). Sofa bed mattress is thinner than I thought it would be but it didn't matter to our kids. Adults may find it not as comfortable as the regular bed which was very nice.
Dorm sized fridge is empty so you can put your stuff in there. Duane Reed is next door and they have everything you can possible need for reasonable prices. If you're too lazy to walk outside, the hotel does have it's own nook on the first floor for juices, snacks, etc.
The midtown sights (FAO, Rockefeller, Central Park) are all walking distance (10 mins or so). There are 2 subway lines on the same block as the hotel that will bring you anywhere in NYC. Very very convenient.
I parked on my own one block away and saved $13 from the valet parking they offered. There are also many eating places (upscale, casual, and street) in the immediate area too.
Overall I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again in the future. It's away from the craziness of Times Square but still a close walk or subway ride.
