While few people probably enjoy spending $250+ per night on a hotel room, it's pretty much a must if you don't want to deal w taxiing everywhere, etc.
I'll save you the lengthy read and just say that my 20+ hours of online research in advance of our trip to NYC (yes, I have nothing to do at night between 10p-midnight) concluded w this hotel being the one and we were quite content.
Highlights & quick overview:
Staff: they really seemed to CARE about guests. Great tips on best way to navigate tourist attractions to make best use of time. Really pleasant surprise that made you feel at home.
Rooms: they're small. It's Manhattan. It was expected after reading pretty much every hotel chain review. Had enough room for 2 adults and a child, but don't expect a 400 sq ft room like you might get in...Idaho (?)
Location: BEST part. Walk out the door and take 5 sidesteps to the right and you're facing Rockefeller centre for a great picture.
Times Square is a 6-7 min walk away (so hotel was far enough fr the noise to have a good sleep) and walked to a broadway show in under ten
Shopping on 5th ave (Tiffany and Co, Nike town, guess, etc was a block away.
would highly recommend staying here!
