Although I have tried several other hotels near Times Square & Columbus Circle, this was my first stay around the Union Square area. I'll be back. It is so nice to be aware from the tourist hordes in midtown, but still be in an active area full of shops/restaurants with quick metro access to Grand Central, Noho, etc. This hotel first wins your heart with their welcoming staff, and we were really taken with Gabrielle's friendly service. Their lobby doubles as a pseudo-club lounge with complimentary breakfast, all day snacks/drinks and evening wine & cheese. Be warned - it was so nice to sit down to drinks and fruit/cookies after sightseeing that it was hard to leave! We liked our suite which was roomy with lots of closet space/hangers. Being away from Times Square, the rooms were a lot quieter at night too. The free wifi, complimentary mineral water & turndown chocolates were also appreciated.Perhaps the only complaint was the sofa bed which is adequate but not of the standard of everything else.
