I stayed here the weekend of August 5-7 2005. It is located in a great neighborhood on the Upper West Side. Its very quiet and family/couple oriented, but a few blocks up there is also a great night life.
We had a standard room that was large in size with a big balcony that had a nice view. There were lounge chairs so I could sit and enjoy the sun rise. Even the bed was ultra comfortable, it felt as good as my own!The staff was great and very helpful, it was a lot more than i expected for the price we paid. I will definitely stay there again. We thought of staying in Mid-town or downtown but i'm glad we didn't it was too crowded with tourists. Staying here you get to experience a different side of New York than what you would get if you stayed in Mid-town or other areas.
I highly recommend this hotel if you want a great experience in New York!
