Just returned from a 4 day stay at the club. What a cool place! Very historic, comfortable, and friendly place to stay! I was there with my husband and 14 year old daughter. My husband and I are both retired military so felt very comfortable in this atmosphere. The club is very comparable with a nice BOQ. If you get that, you will know what to expect and won't be disappointed that this isn't a traditional hotel. That being said, they provide bagels, coffee, and oatmeal free for breakfast, great advice on how to get around, a great location just a few blocks from Grand Central Station, the Morgan Library, and the New York Public Library - Main Branch. We felt very safe in MidTown as well and it was relatively quiet. We would definitely stay there again!
