Just finished a quick trip to NYC and tried out The Lex. What a delightful hotel. None of the typical New York attitude where front of door staff feel they should be on the silver screen rather than dealing with you. No attendants who are more bothered about tips than service and no room so small you have to take turns in the bathroom.
From the moment we arrived we were met with smiles and genuine warmth. Front desk could not have been more pleasant and offered good advice with plenty of local knowledge. They seemed to care about us having a good time.
Breakfast is good coffee (no "brown drinking fluid" here) and pastries in a self serve set up where staff are happy to help you up to your room should you accidentally overload.
Some rooms have balconies which is great but don't expect a beautiful vista - you're not in Kansas now Dorothy. More to the point they are big enough that you don't have to move bags and clothes each time you want to walk around the bed. Genuine space.
As you may be able to tell. I loved it.
