After reading a very negataive review, I didn't know what to expect -- perhaps my expectations were very low. But if I needed to stay in the upper east side of NYC -- for only $230/nt ($7 to rent cable modem/nt), I would stay there.
We had 2 comfortable King beds, perhaps a little too soft, a kitchenette that included large refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster oven, stove, oven, dishwasher, dishes, silverware. There was a round table to eat at, a tv, I think there was a blow dryer. The water ran clear. I didn't have the problem that the other reviewer indicated.
The location was perfect. 3 blocks from Sloan Kettering. While my husband slept, I walked along the East River and sat on the benches reading my magazine.
There are tons of restaurants on 1st Ave. I brought the leftovers back to the room.
The staff was all very helpful.More
