We arrived at app 4pm or so on a weekday during the summer (end of June 2014). The City was crazy and congested, but the hotel was a quiet oasis. From the moment we pulled up until the moment that we pulled out, it was easy and delightful. The hotel was fully renovated at the end of 2013 or beginning of 2014. The renovation is beautiful and practical. This is a hotel where you will feel comfortable walking on the carpets, but don't worry - you don't have to - they will provide you with lovely slippers (and robes if you're so inclined). The room, beds, bathrooms, etc. were spotless. From the young man that checked us in (telling us, without request by me that he was on a mission to connect my room to my older children), to the bellman that brought up our bags with many travel ideas to the patient and knowledgeable concierge and the outstanding manager (who we called to say how much we were enjoying our stay), to the young man that served us in the little bake shop (better French pastry than Montreal or Paris - we didn't eat breakfast anywhere else after our first bite), each and every member of the staff was helpful, friendly, elegant and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The location of the hotel is excellent (lovely neighbourhood and 15-20 minute walk to Time Square, Broadway, etc.). Before we arrived, we were originally booked into one of the most expensive hotels in NYC and changed our mind at the last minute. While I was apprehensive about this last minute decision, this was definitely the best move that I ever made with travel plans. Every other time that I have stayed in NYC, I have felt that I paid too much for too little. This time, I feel like I paid a fair bit, but that it was worth every penny and then some! If you can manage the Palace on your budget, you won't have any regrets.
