I will try to put an exclamation point on all the favorable reviews for the hotel by not repeating the details that others have mentioned of why the hotel deserves a five star rating: The superb location near the city’s iconic attractions, dining and shopping institutions, the plentiful continental breakfast in the morning that is book-ended by an equally hospitable wine and cheese spread in the PM, the highly attentive and very professional staff, etc.
When I saw the staff put on plastic gloves before they handled the food – this attention to detail ( whether or not it is a health requirement ) – correctly presaged perfect execution by the hotel of everything – including the limo service they recommended – during our recent three day stay. As an added plus, our young adult children, NYC sophisticates who spend very lavishly on their sybaritic lifestyle and are very hard to impress, thought the place was a “cool boutique hotel.”
If you want to be transported back to pre-war Paris in the heart of New York City this is the place.
Finally, these reviews tend to be subjective based on the writer’s experience. I have never given a hotel or resort a five star rating before – even assigning Palmetto Bluff which is arguably one of the best resorts in the country four stars.
Bottom Line: Unreservedly recommended!!!!
