My husband booked our weekend stay here as a surprise, and I loved it! The concept (library-themed with rooms and floors designated to 'cover' certain subject areas) was perfect, and our upper floor room had a beautiful view of not only Madison Avenue but also of the NY Public Library, lions and all!:) The service was extremely friendly and accomodating, and we really felt like we were coming home to our own personal apartment at the end of each day. The room was extremely large in terms of NYC-room-sizes, and it was very clean and beautifully appointed. The included food/beverage service was far more generous than we had anticipated, with the selections being varied, healthy, fresh, and plentiful. The only downside was the WIFI. Although available throughout the hotel and included in your room rate, service was spotty and inconsistent, making it hard to maintain a connection for more than a few minutes at any given time. All in all, though, I would definitely stay here again...and again...and again:)!
