We stayed at this hotel immediately after hurricane sandy.
We stayed in a contemporary delux room, booked through British Airways, which was perfect for the two of us (2 double beds). The standard of decor was very good, the beds were comfortable and where we were at the back of the hotel on the eighth floor it was very quiet. The shower (with three different shower heads) was very good, although the bathroom could do with an extractor fan. The room also had a great coffee machine and radio with iPod dock (although the time was wrong and we couldn't work out how to change it!).
The hotel is very clean and the staff very accommodating and polite. Free Internet was a bonus, although was a bit slow for my liking.
The breakfast was perfectly acceptable for us. It consisted on bagels with cream cheese or jam, delicious muffins, cereal, fruit, orange juice and toast. They provided paper plates and bowls and plastic cutlery which some might not like, but it didn't upset us.
In terms of location, the hotel is on 35th street very close to Macy's and Penn Station, so great for shopping and visiting Broadway.
Whilst we couldn't make much use of the roof terrace, there is a great view of the Empire State Building, so it's worth going up there.
We'd also recommend Keen's Chophouse on 36th street and O'Reilly's Irish Pub on the same road.
This hotel deserves much more than its 3 stars.
