We stayed here for 4 nights and had a 1 bedroom suite on the 5th. floor.
The room is huge, with separate bedroom, bathroom, living area, and a kitchen with all the amenities, even dryer and oven. Plenty of storage room also.
The bathroom is a bit small but functional with great lighting. The suite has large windows and a terrace.
This is a great location if you want to visit museums like the Metropolitan, Whitney, Frick, even American Museum of Natural History. Most are a 10-15 minutes walk, or a short cab drive away.
Central Park is also nearby.
There is no bar or restaurant in the Hotel (it's actually a apartment - hotel) but you have several mini markets nearby. Plenty of spots for breakfast also. Newark airport is about 38min or a $75 ride.
We had breakfast in our room. Every morning there are fresh packs of coffee and tea. There is a toaster, huge fridge, oven, microwave and a dishwasher.
The times we had breakfast outside we walked to Dtud or 5 little red hens, both of which I can recommend.
The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. You have free desktops in the lobby and free wifi in the room.
If you are looking for a hotel to visit Times Square or Broadway this might be a bit of a far stay. The nearest subway is a 10 minutes walk and it takes you a 30 minute subway ride to Times Square. If you want more of New York this is a great place, since you have to ride the subway anyway.
I was told that a new subway would open very near the hotel at the end of 2014.
There are a few - minor letdowns. The curtains in bedroom en living room were a bit torn up (not a big issue but you pay more than $220 a night so it shouldn't be). Also the cables of the Tv's (you have 2 large led TV's) could be tucked away better.
Staying on the 5th. floor street noise in the morning will wake you up the first nights, so ask for a room higher up, you'll have a better view also.
They are going to open a new hotel on park av. Don't know the prices but I'll check it out when it opens.
Will I go back - yes, for the location (near central park), the huge comfortable room, free wifi and the great staff.
