Stayed here for 4 nights in December sharing a room with my mum. Room was a decent size (with two double beds and still room to swing a cat), bit dated so I'm guessing maybe the ground floor hasn't been renovated yet... but we had everything we needed, including a fridge and safe. Bathroom was small but shower was nice and hot, it was clean and there were some nice toiletries for my mum (who always forgets something!) We didn't have a view - well, unless you count an enclosed "courtyard" which housed some pipes and not a lot else, but we weren't in New York to look out the hotel window so it didn't bother us.
Our only niggles about the room were that we couldn't get the heater to work (not a big issue as the hotel was generally lovely and warm but we were looking for a bit of a boost on the heat after a day of trudging through the snow) and the fact that our room was on the ground floor close to the service area/staff cloakroom and we were woken up every morning pretty early (i.e. around 6am) by staff coming on shift and talking loudly on their way down the hall.
Other than that though the staff were excellent, reception staff and doorman were very friendly and welcoming and happy to help out with our questions about trains! Doorman stored our bags for our last day and arranged a car to take us to the airport which, when it's snowing outside, is much easier than hailing a cab.
We ate in the restaurant on our second evening and the food was excellent. They do a pretty reasonable fixed price menu too which would have been great if we'd had bigger appetites. They also have a happy hour (or 2) each evening with wine, beer and some bar snacks at a very reasonable price. Breakfast was great too.
Location is great, not too central that it's noisy, but we walked to Grand Central Station in about 10 minutes (in the snow) and you can easily walk to most of the big sights/shops etc. There's a subway stop at the end of the street which we caught to get to the financial district/Staten Island,and there are plenty of restaurants nearby if you fancy venturing out of the hotel for some dinner.
Overall, if you're looking for somewhere warm and comfortable to rest in after a day of sightseeing, along with friendly service, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
