We really loved this boutique hotel from the moment the taxi dropped us off outside. The staff could not do enough to help, and the room was typically New York small, but extremely clean with lovely furnishings and felt like our little New York home. It was decorated lovely for Christmas and although it is tucked away it looked really impressive and very 'New York'.
The hotel had free tea and coffee facilities downstairs which we often took advantage of, as well as free internet in the lounge and they even gave us an umbrella each on the one day it rained!
When they say it is close to the Empire State Building they are not exaggerating! As you walk a few steps to the end of the road it feels like you are underneath it, so no excuse for visiting it early in the day to avoid the queues - we went first thing and went straight to the top. This hotel is right off 5th Avenue & Madison Avenue, so very central and a few mins walk from Broadway, Times Square etc. Sometimes if we had spent the day further up near the park it did feel like a bit of a walk back, but very safe and so much to look at that we did'nt mind.
There is also a cute little breakfast bar just a few steps away on Madison, so we never had to wonder where to get our morning food to set us up for the day.
We had the best time here and would definitely visit this hotel again. Of course New York is amazing, especially at Christmas, but the hotel definitely added to our experience.
