This was a wonderful weekend experience that was only possible due to the special anniversary rates. The normal rate is hideously expensive, but getting the second night for $20 made it only "very" expensive.
It was definitely worth the expense, though. Beginning with the doorman who anticipated our arrival and greeted me by name, there was a genuine welcome extended. I was traveling with my wife & daughter, the latter enjoying a birthday shopping trip to New York. The front desk had upgraded us to a Junior Suite to make room for three, and when we got to the room, we found another treat. They had placed a bottle of champaigne and a personalized birthday cake for my daughter in the room!
Throughout our stay the concierge helped with museum tickets, dinner advice/reservations and shopping guidance. We were treated like "VIP's" ... not at all like a family who could only afford to stay there on a special deal.
The Gotham Lounge in the lobby was a very nice place to relax over drinks or coffee. They also served 'high tea' which looked good, though we did not partake.
There was also a penthouse bar, but that was the only negative about the whole stay. It was tawdry and "cheap" looking ... the decor lacked only a dancing pole to achieve the effect they appeared to be striving for. Fortunately, it is easy to avoid.
