We have just got back from a 5 night stay at this lovely hotel in New York. The staff are polite and very helpful, but not in your face. The free high speed wifi throughout the hotel was brilliant and there is even a computer with a printer that is free to use (perfect for those e-tickets you forget to print off!!).
Our room was on the 6th floor at the back of the hotel as we had requested so although we had no view it was lovely and quiet all night which for its location (practically in the middle of Times Square) is amazing. The room was spacious with plently of useful facilities such as an ironing board and iron, safe, hair dryer, coffee maker, flat screen tv and DVD player, plenty of accessible plugs and i-phone/I-pod docking station. The bathroom was also spacious and stocked with lovely toiletries and fluffy towels.
The hotel provided a nice continental breakfast and a cheese and wine reception too.
On the negative side, the room only window aircon which was noisey so we didn't use it at night, but there was a ceiling fan that helped circulate the air. The corridors and communal spaces were not cooled at all though.
The hotel is perfectly located for sightseeing, we walked everywhere so the central location helped. There is an abundance of restraunts nearby, we ate at Virgils BBQ joint a couple of times, the food was served quickly and the portion sizes were unbelievable. Virgils is on 43rd street practically behind the hotel. We also ate at Cafe Wah down in the Greenwich Village, the house band and casual food is a great way to enjoy an evening when jet lag is nagging at you to go to bed, needs to be booked in advance though! The BXL Belgian cafe/bar which is 2 or 3 doors from the Casablanca is a great place to have a cold refreshing beer after a busy day sightseeing :)
Would we go again..... Absolutely!
