This was my second stay at this hotel and I selected it because it is centrally located and offers wonderful amenities. As I flew in to Newark, I was able to catch the Newark Airport Express directly from the airport which put me off at Bryant Park....steps away from the hotel. Arriving before 10 a.m. I was greeted by a friendly employee who noted that I had visited previously (well over a year ago) and welcomed me back. She then said my room was ready and checked me in - very surprising for me as I had expected to be leaving my bags in storage until later.
I was given a room on the fourth floor in the North Tower overlooking 42nd Street...very quiet except for the street noise which the hotel could not control. Loved having the room restocked daily with soda, water, juice and snacks....and especially enjoyed the rain shower and the little foot bath - that was a great touch after hours spent pounding the NYC pavement.
The hotel is walking distance to Times Square, and is also within a few blocks of Grand Central, Bryant Park, and several Subway lines. The staff are top notch and I have no complaints about my stay. The Andaz is definitely my "go to" hotel when visiting the city!More
