The Milburn was converted from an apartment building to a hotel, and some of the apartment features do show up in the rooms. Most notably, the bathroom had the smallest amount of floor space I've ever seen between the toilet, sink, and shower -- clearly a legacy of being an New York apartment. The rooms also have kitchenettes from their apartment days, and that's a definite plus. There are several wonderful markets -- Zabar's, Fairway, and others -- within a short walking distance on Broadway, and it's great to be able to pick up snacks and your own sodas to take back to the room. My husband and I both love to read at night, and the lighting in hotels is always problematic. Another legacy of the apartment days is that the rooms have overhead light fixtures, which seems to be a rarity in hotels, in addition to plenty of lamps. It's the best lit hotel room I've ever stayed in.
We had originally booked a junior suite, but were upgraded to a one-bedroom upon arrival. The rooms are nothing special in terms of decor, but are clean and pleasant. The staff was pleasant and helpful, despite the fact that there seemed to be a large tour group checking in at the same time we did which made things a little hectic.
The neighborhood is wonderful with plenty of great restaurants nearby. We especially enjoyed Niko's, the Greek restaurant on the corner of Broadway and 76th.
We're already talking about going about again. I would definitely recommend it.
