With many glowing reviews here on TA, I wasn't sure if this hotel would live up to the hype. As others have said, it's a great location if you want to play tourist. We were traveling with an 8 year old who wanted to see the big sites, so being within walking distance of Times Square and Rockefeller center was great. We parked across the street (be careful of the hourly rate if you go over the allotted 24!) and never used subway or taxi, just walked everywhere.
I wish there was a fridge in our room; we booked the family suite which wasn't huge, but it was nice to have separate bedrooms for the price of a standard hotel room. The elevator was slow and the ice machine is in the lobby, so I kept our drinks cold by filling the trash can with bags of ice (filled grocery bags) and kept our bottled water in the ice. $20 a night for a mini fridge was too much for a few bottles of water and soda. Staff was pleasant and the breakfast was basic continental, but had bagels, donuts, hard boiled eggs, yogurt and fruit.
If visiting with kids or if you want to play tourist, I recommend this hotel. I'd stay again!
