This is a lovely boutique hotel that is in the perfect location. We went as a family and wanted to be close to Central Park, FAO Swartz, shopping, Times Square & Rockefeller Center and this location was perfect. The hotel itself is very charming and the staff was pleasant and helpful. When we arrived our room was not ready and they offered to upgrade us to a room that was ready for the same price. The suite we were in was Fabulous! Beautiful decor, roomy and clean. The complimentary breakfast was definitely a plus as well as having drinks and snacks available throughout the day on the second floor.
Our suite was on the front of the hotel, away from the elevator, on the 13th floor (or 12A as it is marked inside the elevator) and there was a lot of noise from the city streets below. However it is New York City and we expected that. The only other very small complaint we have is that the bagels they serve tasted terrible. We tried them a couple of times and tried different varieties to find that they all had a very odd smell and taste. But there were plenty of other great options to choose from like bread for toast, pastries, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, boiled eggs, etc.
We will definitely stay at this hotel next time we visit NYC.
