Having lived in New York for over 2 years, this charming stay was a happy Valentine's nostalgic trip down memory lane.
The high ceilings were very welcome, esp for my wife who's slightly claustrophobic. The apartment also comes well-equipped with Americana art pieces and all the standard trappings (yes, for NYkers exposed unpainted brick/concrete is a premium 'feature') including a combi washer-dryer which would've been very welcome in NY, but the plumbing wouldn't have allowed it.
The firedoor entrance & tiny walk up lobby desk is perhaps the only jarring part of the atmospheric experience. But no complaints: at least there's a keyed elevator to save us from dragging our luggage up 3-5 floors. The bed in 303 was also a tad soft & sunken and I should have complained like an ex-NYker, but why spoil an otherwise romantic experience.
All in all, it was a fun stay, with good restaurants, a spa and an arty cinema barely a stone's throw away. Fed sq and the free tourist tram are also close by. If you grab a Melb visitor's book from the lobby, you might even score 2-for-1 tickets! We'll be back.
