From the moment we stepped inside we were treated graciously by all the staff...Our room wasn't ready when we arrived ,but that was no problem...The porter stowed our cases and we went into the lounge area and drank coffee and read books until our room was clear...I cannot call out one employee as we received excellent service from them all,but a special thanks go to the porter who upon seeing I was not feeling too good (due to a chest infection) late one night,kindly said he would go and get some boiling water to make me a coffee...I was overwhelmed by his generosity and he wouldn't take a tip...
We had a 10th floor room overlooking 32nd Street...but there was little or no noise through the night...you would never guess you were just a few steps from 5th Avenue..
Our room was just a normal double room,but more than adequate for our needs and truly a home from home.The bed was more than just comfortable in fact one of the best I have slept in away from home,with fresh linen daily and the towels in the bathroom were gleaming white and fluffy.
Overall I would say this is a first class hotel in a fantastic position.And with a beautiful welcoming lobby of gleaming marble and stunning chandeliers.And all Just steps from The Empire State Building and close to many subway stations...
I would not hesitate to return to this hotel on a future visit to NYC.
