Residence is perfectly located along subway line 6 & E & M on 51st; very easy to cover most of centers of interest in manhattan. 15 minutes walking distance from time square along 48st.
Morton williams Supermarket located less than 5 minutes walking distance on 2nd AV/ 48st.
We had a studio for 4 people including kitchen (fridge, dish washer, microwaves, 2 hobs). We spent for 8 nights there.
Perfect to stay in NYC with teenagers (14 and 10 years) and let us the chance to have some diner at home after a very long day walking accross the city!
Breakfast is really good with fresh fruits, waffles... Salty menu varies from one day to another. Really efficient and friendly team in general.
That is a very good address to stay at NYC.
Quite expensive but service is there!

My husband and I stayed here recently as part of a mini getaway. The hotel is very well located (east side near Grand Central). The lobby is basic, and there is no bar, but there are a few in that block. The staff was great. The room was huge--honestly, more than we needed, but better than too small! The wifi was free and worked well. The free breakfast was very good. Many hot and cold choices and the coffee was excellent. We would definitely stay again.

First time at this hotel and will be staying here again next time in NYC. My son and I arrived early (about noon) and our room was not ready, but the front desk clerk took care of our bags for us and took our phone number so she could call us to let us know when the room was ready. Very friendly and helpful! We went to lunch at a little Italian place across the street from the hotel and by the time we had finished lunch we had received a call that our room was ready.

The room was good sized with all the amenities anyone could ask for. Have to add that the concierge and doorman were both just as friendly and helpful as the front desk personnel. The room was on the second floor and we were concerned about street noise while trying to sleep, but there was absolutely no noise or problems of any kind.

The "free" breakfast was very good with virtually anything one wanted provided. The dining room folks were also very friendly and worked hard to keep everything stocked and warm.

I did have two "niggling" issues. 1) There are only 2 elevators and the wait for one can at times be a little longer than one would like and 2) the room's bathroom was quite small with no exhaust fan. Still - much better than other NYC hotels that we have stayed at.

The staff is absolutely wonderful!!
I'm delighted and definitively will be back!!
The front desk is very warm and helpful: they broke a $100 bill for me, made a second card/key (I've forgot mine in the room), gave me a late check-out, always with a sincere smile.
The doorman also was very cheerful and ready to help.
I loved the housekeeping: they never tried to enter my room while I was in (the guest feels at ease) and everything was very clean.
And more: never were I disturbed by the vacuum cleaner noise (I have no idea how that is possible!)
The breakfast was quite crowded but no big deal since we have kitchen in the room. I have to point out that the attendant, a lovely young lady, even being super busy, interrupted what she was doing to grab a tray for me in the kitchen!
Really, the staff go the extra mile!! There's a very hands-on Assistant Guest Service Manager, Ms. Nykia Griffith, that is very attentive and helpful.
The wi-fi connection was excellent, fast and steady the whole time.
I definitively recommend. I travel a lot but this is the first evaluation I write because they really deserve it.

Room Tip: I took the corner studio with balcony and it was worth it.

This hotel is in a great location - if ever returning to NYC will stay here again!!! Close to the subway & bus stops, a little hard at peak times to get a taxi as the Lexington seemed to steal them from the bellhop. The rooms where very clean, nice & roomy which I was very thankful for! Staff was friendly and took care of issues immediately. My only disappointment was I booked the 1st of February with the reservation center asking for a high floor room and was on the 2nd floor - while it is a GREAT view (our window was next to the front entrance) and they did provide earplugs it was a little noisy to sleep. Also, I received a very warm email a few days before the stay welcoming me and asking if my stay was for business or pleasure, I explained it was for a 40th birthday trip and received an email back saying they would take note of that - nothing was mentioned by the staff or in the room about it being a birthday trip...but that is really something minor!!! The hotel itself is great! PLUS they have a GREAT breakfast bar everyday!!!
