As others have said, the location is fantastic. The suites are large, tastefully decorated and have comfortable furnishings. Couple of things though: it is a noisy place. Even if your room does not face King Street, their is constant noise, especially during the day. I could hear a constant humming (airco?), the housekeeping staff's voices, the baby crying next door, a private event going on in a seperate area on my floor....I did not expect this and I really had to keep the white noise machine on all the time. Couple of little things: no slippers are provided even though you clearly want to kick off your shoes after a full day of walking. A huge crack in the drywall in my bathroom that was poorly caulked over. My bagel at breakfast was dry and hard, not even close to what I would consider a bagel (no, I am not a New Yorker:). The cushions in the Cabana's on the rooftop patio are filthy, really you cannot lie down on them without first putting a towel down. No lounge chairs on the rooftop patio, no heating lamps (so really cant use the space at night) and no lighting at all. You also cannot access the rooftop unless you are physically fit enough to walk 2 full flights of stairs. The wireless was also very slow, not sure I could work if I had to. I would for these reasons not consider this a luxury hotel.
