We (two couples) for two nights on our way back home to the west coast after a cruise in France and a short stay in Rome. This was our second time at the hotel - we had stayed about fifteen years ago when our daughter was in an intern summer program through her college. We had come out to visit her and spend the weekend in New York city. It was very good then for our family and even better this time. We were upgraded upon arrival to a wonderful suite that had a foyer, very comfortable queen bedroom, fantastic bathroom with a multiple head shower, and a fantastic living room with a fireplace (I assume it did not work - we did not try it) and also and small dining table for four and a wet-bar with coffee making equipment and a refrigerator. We almost felt bad that we were so busy seeing the sites we did not have enough time to fully use the room (although I did take a short nap on the sofa one afternoon). The roof top terrace is very nice to see the Empire State building. We enjoyed our breakfast that was included in the price. We used the services of the concierge even before we arrived as he arranged for a private driver to pick us up at the airport. He also made arrangements for a hop on/off bus site seeing tour, dinner reservations and the driver to take us back to the airport when we left. The bellman was also very helpful with our luggage coming and going and storage when we needed it the day we left and getting taxi-cabs for us twice. He also knew all the local places to eat as I had wanted a bagel with lox and a hard boiled egg to supplement the hotel's breakfast offerings (the hotel had bagels - but not lox).
I have to also compliment the desk attendant a young man who was so helpful and courteous - I wish I could remember his name. I don't know if we will make it back to NYC for a third time but if we do this is where we will happily stay!
