Aside from the one misstep on our way out, our two night stay was fantastic. Booked a terrace balcony suite that was a modern minimalist dream. Plenty of room, great views of the old library on 5th Ave. (Booked my brother a standard King. Was nice but modest.) Service in lobby and at front door was casual but warm and friendly. Location is perfect for theater, museums and accessing Grand Central for traveling further afield. GLARING PROBLEM: if you want breakfast between 10:30am and 11:30am in either their coffee shop or restaurant, your outta luck. They stop serving hot food for an hour. So breakfast before going to airport/train station requires going elsewhere. Major hospitality screwup for Hyatt. Breakfast is a 24/7 necessity when you're traveling internationally or transcontinental and having an hour when you can't get any hot food in a New York City hotel is unforgivable. SAVING GRACE: Ratna, the kindly Director of Rooms, had them briefly open the kitchen to make us two to-go breakfast sandwiches. That gesture alone is worth four-star rating. We'll be back in the Fall!
