We stayed here as a couple in May 2013.
The hotel has an Art Deco feel to it & fits in well with the Empire state area. It has 12 floors plus the penthouse which also shares it floor with the gym & the terrace. There is a fire exit style door which seperates the rooms from the public area. There are 2 lifts also.
On arrival the doorman was very friendly and the staff at reception were very efficient. We were checked in within minutes & we're given an upgrade to a penthouse room as it was my husbands 40th birthday.
The room was at the back of the property PH04. It was extremely clean and had a king size bed, air con/heating, TV, fridge with complimentary water & cokes plus a coffee maker.
There was an iron & ironing board as well as an electronic safe which was also free to use.
The bathroom had 1sink with a hairdryer and a pull out shaving/make up mirror. The walk in shower had 3 jets and plenty of clean towels were provided daily as well as complimentary toiletries.
Breakfast is provided at this hotel. On offer were a fresh choice of bagels, muffins, bread, Danish pastries, fresh fruit, cereals, yogurts, butters, cream cheese & jams. Coffee & tea were available as well as orange & apple juice. Everything was self serve and an adequate start to the day.
The location of the hotel was perfect. on leaving the hotel and turning left, it was about a1-2 minute walk to 5th avenue at the end of the road. Turn left here and walk for 15mins & you will find Tiffany's, Saks, The trump tower, The public library, The Rockefeller centre plus more.
Turn right into fifth ave and you will be at The Empire state building within a few minutes, carry on further to find Madison Square & The Flatiron District.
Leaving the hotel & turning right, it was less than a minute walk to the end of the road where you can find the subway. Cross 6th avenue and you will come face to face with Macys. Turn right onto Broadway and walk the 15 minute walks to Time square & 42nd street.
I would definitely recommend this Hotel and will book it again on my return to the city.
