We just got back from a great stay. Very nice room on the 4th floor. The bed was very firm. The bathroom is nice. Lots of storage in the room. The staff was very attentive with questions and quickly bringing up ice or whatever else you need. The hotel was sold out, but did not seem crowded and never waited for an elevator. The location is perfect. We spent a lot of time in lower Manhattan but also got up to the upper west side and never had a problem finding a cab to bring us back. I don't think we ever spent more than $12 on one. It's the perfect location. If you're a walker like us, we walked to Central Park one day and SoHo another. No problem. The terrace on the 12th floor was nice, but the $12 drinks were the weakest I've ever had. During the day there was rarely anyone working the front door. So you are on your own to get cabs. I think they have a fairly small crew and if someone helps a customer to their room, there is no one left to work the front door. I paid extra when booking the room for a car service, but it was just some random service that they use. The web site is confusing and I was under the impression it was paid for with tip included, but that wasn't the case, and he only accepted cash. Not cool. Our driver on the way to the airport had no idea where he was going. Waste of money. Get a cab for a lot less. Besides that it was a fantastic experience. I highly recommend.
