We stopped for two nights at the hotel. We had been on the QM2 Southampton to New York and wanted to stop a couple of days in New York to revisit a few places before flying home. I did a lot of research as when we last stayed in NY we were happy just to have a bed for the night and weren't worried by the luxuries. However a few years on luxury is higher on our list! The hotel looked lovely on the website but to be honest what swung it for us was the wine and cheese evenings, breakfast and tea/coffee and snacks supplied whenever touching base. The roof top garden was another pull and we were so lucky with the weather that we did take our coffee up there which was bliss. I knew I had picked the right hotel when the doorman was so friendly and helpful. The room was just lovely with a small balcony. The room and bathroom are large for NY and immaculately clean. The staff did everything they could to help including lending us something that could charge our iphone and ipad as we had lost ours. The cheese and wine is served for three hours and it is great to plan your evening or next day relaxing in this way. It was very well supported which made the hotel lobby have a good atmosphere. Although I had thought it was quite expensive to stay there, taking everything into consideration, I think it absolutely suited us and we would definitely stay there again.
