I cannot say enough great things about this property. The staff is wonderful--very friendly and not pretentious despite the fact that a celebrity or two is either staying or hanging out at PHD Rooftop Lounge here any night of the week. There is a freaking DJ booth in the lobby! We never ended up going out to any other clubs or lounges the entire three days we were in NYC--we just ordered bottles of Champagne and hung out in the lobby jammin' with the house DJ. Their house DJs were all excellent. Did I mention the views from PHD? Epic.
So, if you are traveling on business and looking for a quiet place, maybe this isn't the hotel for you -- but I can say that I stayed on the second floor and it was very quiet. The rooms are sleek and hip -- actually spacious by New York standards. Internet worked well. There is also gym for working out. The downstairs lobby cafe/restaurant was packed during mid-week. Yes, I said the one in hotel lobby. I'm going back next week to eat there.
Definitely THE PLACE to be.
If I had to make one complaint -- and it's totally minor -- it would be that the shower curtains with the sheet of metal hanging rings on it was a little hard to open and close, and the bathroom got very stuffy due to steam and seemed to stay muggy for a while. I couldn't find a ventilation fan in the bathroom.
