After staying at a less desirable property near Times Square to be close to a theater for a play, I made the move here and this hotel made up for every unpleasant experience! The hotel is lovely! The room was upscale as well as the amenities! I loved the breakfast buffet! And my room was plush! I was able to walk to Bryant Park on an unseasonably warm day in December. The staff was friendly and I would definitely stay again!

De grootste troef avn dit hotel is echt de ligging. Op wandelafstand van Times square, Central Park, Fifth avenue, Chrysler building, Rockefeller, moMa,...Mooi hotel met oude grandeur. Zeer uitgebreid ontbijtbuffet met elke dag wat variatie. Ontbijt wel eerder prijzig (50 USD/PP) en voor bijvoorbeeld een cappuccino moet je 11 usd extra betalen, wat wij er wat over vonden gezien de prijs van het ontbijt. Het personeel aan de balie was niet echt vriendelijk, toch zeker niet voor Amerikaanse normen. Ruime, mooie kamers met heerlijke badproducten. Dit hotel is een aanrader voor een citytrip NY.
