Without doubt this is one of the best places to stay in New York. We stayed here for our honeymoon and the location is excellent. If the retailer Anthropologie did hotels this would be it. What a wonderful place!
The rooms here are spacious and beautifully decorated. The beds are very comfortable. The feather pillows were too soft for our liking and the hotel swapped them immediately for firm foam ones and they were much better. They then made a note so we were sure to have the same for our next visit. Rooms have a complimentary mini bar (alcohol not included) and a snack basket. A fantastic touch and very useful after a long day out and about, especially if you like Hershey's Peanut Butter Cups! The bathrooms are perfect and all the usual touches you would expect. Very large shower, water in all directions. Toiletries excellent. Beautiful handmade soaps.
In our opinion the hotel website doesn't quite do the hotel public areas justice. There is a private sitting room with bar for hotel guests only and here you can order inspired cocktails and delicious food from the adjoining restaurant whilst sat next to the crackling log fire. Free hotel wifi, fast connection. Beyond the private room is a wonderful courtyard garden where you can eat and drink alfresco. There is also a large public sitting area at the front of the hotel. All in all plenty of room to relax after a long day walking in Manhattan. The Robert De Niro art on the walls is a lovely touch. Good actor, hotelier, restaurateur AND artist!
The restaurant connected to the hotel, Locanda Verde (accessed through hotel or separate street entrance) is excellent and serves delicious Italian inspired food and drink. Warning: it gets very busy most of the time and booking a table is recommended. Breakfast here is also very good but as already described you can order from the menu in the private sitting room if you prefer. The hotel also has an excellent room service menu for ordering in your room or downstairs.
The spa in this hotel is truly magical and the swimming pool well worth a visit. The 250 year old structure that surrounds the pool is totally original and an inspired touch.
The service is outstanding, friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
Just one criticism: the bathrooms can be a bit noisy in next door rooms. For us it was not a problem as we rose very early due to jet lag. This is a very small problem and all in all the positives made this insignificant to us.
The rooms prices indicate the level of attention to detail and service. You will not be disappointed. Well worth a visit!
