I stayed at room 1013 which is a junior suite. This consisted of a separate area through an archway where my 2 year old was able to sleep in a travel cot. This area had a pull out bed, tv and a couple of chairs. Our first impression upon arriving on Christmas day was that the entrance was rather grand. The staff were polite but not friendly. They advised us there were free muffins and tea/coffee etc every morning in the lobby from 6am (which were delicious). Our room was ridiculously hot. I've noticed a couple of other reviews on here also say the same. We did complain about it but the heating wasn't on. This was during the snowstorm as well so it was freezing outside. The floors and the walls felt very hot so it must be from the pipes. Throughout our entire stay our windows were open constantly and only then was it just bearable. The decor was extremely old fashioned but I think this is probably part of the charm of the hotel which is over 100 years old. The bed was comfy and big. The bathroom wasn't too impressive as it didn't look very clean (the sort where you want to keep something on your feet so your skin doesn't touch the floor!). We got little sample bottles of shampoo and free soaps. Having said that it it could just be where the bathroom was so old - I didn't want to look too closely! Overall the hotel was okay and I'd probably stay there again. It wasn't particularly cheap though. The conscierge girl was the most miserable person I've come across in New York. She couldn't even crack a smile and her behaviour was bordering on rude. I watched her for a while whilst sitting in the lobby and she was more interested in texting someone than dealing with people and would make them wait whilst she finished her texting etc! Don't go here if you're looking for friendly staff and a fashionable trendy room with all the mod cons. (there are ipod docking stations in the rooms although my friend didn't have one in her room!). Go here if you're looking for a great location (just round the corner from Macy's and Empire State) and somewhere to rest your head.
