My wife and I had previously stayed in a suite at one of the city's 5 star hotels. On this visit we realised we could have our own virtually private accommodation for the same price. We chose to stay in the Spa Suite which is the most expensive. Each of the 4 suites is on a different level with one being below ground level in the basement. It has to be said that Inn New York and a majority of the hotels in the city are at opposite ends of the spectrum for character. We have never experienced such a quirky place in all of our travels. From the sherry decanter and soft music in the entrance vestibule to the daily cakes and pastries that appear in the fridge, we were never short of nice touches to show someone cared about their role as hosts. Each room is crammed with artefacts, magazines, books, chocolates, the list goes on. Our suite was on the first floor and the door led straight into the bedroom. There was a gallery kitchen leading into the bath/spa area. The bed is very large and comfy. The kitchen is very well equipped. The bath/spa room is amazing but we both thought it was overdue a facelift and makeover. Its worth bearing in mind that this is a very old building with a lots of original features. On the last night of our visit we had a noisy family in the suite above. This coupled with the poor sound insulation of the windows resulted in a very restless night's sleep. Heavy sleepers may not find this an issue. Its worth noting that the other suites dont have a window onto the busy street at the front of the property. My guess is the top floor and the basement would be the quietest. All in all a fab place to stay. Its also worth mentioning that the rooms are spotless. The cleaning staff are outstanding. Is it worth the money? It depends on your needs and what deals are being offered by the hotels at the time. This place is unique and as such you would expect to pay extra for the privilege. One slight niggle was the extra charge for a late check out considering we had just paid for 7 nights in the top suite.
