3 of us stayed in a 1 bedroom suite here in mid-April. We really enjoyed our stay. The suite had plenty of room and with a handy kitchenette (we didn't cook, but we like to have breakfast in the room and pack a lunch so we can picnic while sightseeing). The Fairway Market across the street is well stocked and open from 6am - 1pm. Subway station is 2 blocks away. Central Park 3 blocks away.
Staff were helpful and courteous. The room was clean and in good repair.
The fitness room is a little sparse. A few cardio machines and a cable resistance machine. No free weights. When I checked it out when we arrived, I was a little disappointed as I like to have some free weights and a little more room to exercise in. As it turned out, we were on the go from 9 am until 11 pm every day, so I didn't see the inside of the fitness centre again.
We debated whether or not to book a car service or shuttle to get us to the airport on our departure day. We didn't want to get caught having trouble hailing a cab. In the end, there was no problem getting a cab late on a Saturday morning. Cab was cheaper.
Great value suites in a great location. Highly recommend this place.
