This hotel was chosen due to its excellent location, close to everything. The rooftop bar is fantastic for viewing the Empire State Building, which is just a few blocks away. It is also one of few hotels who provide an included breakfast, so this was a bonus. It is decorated in art deco style which was lovely. I was celebrating my birthday and the hotel had a little surprise of chocolates and drinks in our room, which was a nice touch.
On arrival our room was quite noisy as it was street side. I had requested a room on the opposite side and I asked reception staff for a different room. Staff were extremely accommodating considering the hotel was virtually full. We eventually were given a room on the penthouse floor level which was a premium room. I did need to pay an additional supplement for this but it was worth it as it was spacious, well-appointed and quiet.
I cannot fault the staff at the Hotel metro...Everyone from doormen, receptionists, maintenance, bar staff and housekeeping were polite, friendly, helpful and always smiling. The cleanliness of the rooms each day was amazing and spotless. The 24 hour tea and coffee was really great after a hard day sightseeing/shopping.
The only niggles were seating at breakfast being very limited...(although we did surface for breakfast each day before 7am to avoid this) and the lifts being slow at times, otherwise this was a fabulous hotel and highly recommended.
