I admit I was a bit sceptical with the consistently good reviews of this hotel but I am delighted to say I was totally impressed with the room, the hotel and the location. First impressions were excellent. The concierge helpful and friendly, the reception staff equally so and the one bedroomed suite was spacious, light and airy. Cleanliness was impeccable, even to the point that the shower curtain was changed daily. Dirty crock/utensils are taken away and replaced with clean ones. There's even a kettle to boil on the full sized cooker so take some 'Yorkshire' tea bags, buy some fresh milk from Fairway directly opposite, and bliss, a proper cuppa. For coffee lovers the hotel supplies a Kurig coffee machine with pods. There are not many hotel beds which I can say I like, but, the beds in this hotel were so comfy, they were an absolute delight after a hard day in NYC. Heating / cooling was efficient and easy to use. Windows opened if you wanted fresh air. The bathroom was compact in size but the shower (fixed head) was powerful and the bath just about big enough to soak away those aching muscles. Storage in the suite was very good with one of two closets accommodating the digital safe which was big enough to take a laptop. Two large digital TV's, an IPAD docking station/alarm clock and iron/board completed the useful commodities. Fittings were of an extremely high standard. The location is lovely with bus and subway on the doorstep and lots of shops, diners and restaurants to choose from. The Beacon Bar is delightful. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, it certainly ticked all my boxes and provided a real home from home comfortable holiday.
