I stayed for five nights in May with a sister and we were generally pleased. The public areas are stunning and the numerous photo displays of historic figures who have stayed at the hotel are fascinating. I was prepared to be disappointed with the sleeping floors, but was quite pleased. The hallways were in great condition and very elegant.
Our room looked into the courtyard, with minimal view, but that was okay, as we weren't there much anyway. The room itself was clean and well-kept, albeit aging. We appreciated the in-room safe, iron/ironing board, and flatscreen TV with lots of channels. I was disappointed that we did not have a coffee maker, but I had packed a small water heating pot, Via instant, and my own mugs, so we made do.
The room service charges are ludicrous, but there is a Starbucks open limited hours on the Park Avenue side entrance and the hotel is smack in the middle of the city, with endless options for food in all price ranges in the surrounding blocks.
A subway stop is right on the corner of Lexington and 50th St, where we bought a $29 pass good for unlimited rides on the city's great bus system.
The staff was wonderfully polite, friendly, and professional.
