We stayed at the Iroquois in March of 2009. It was the perfect location for us, being close to Times Square but tucked away from the crowd. Our little window "view" was of the brick back side and the next building behind it but it was very quiet. The staff was accommodating and kind. Though we never did have "bathrobes and slippers" as was advertised. However, it was hardly necessary since we were out and about most of the day, not lounging around the room.
The complimentary computer with internet (down in the library) came in handy for checking email and booking some last minute tickets for the Statue.
The furnishings were very nice - love those sheets - and my bedtime chocolate left with the turn-down bed service. The room was small but the bathroom was good sized and nicely appointed. In the standard room that we had there is only the bed for a sitting area with the exception of a desk chair. But since we spent very little time in the room and had done a lot of walking, the bed was a welcome lounge chair! Flat screen tv was nice, NYTimes in the morning at your door...the little fridge would have been nicer had there been room to store a few of our own things vs. just the drinks you had to pay (a lot) for. We drank the "free" sparkling water left for us and bought drinks and snacks down at the local drugstore in Times Square to bring back to the hotel.
My only disappointment was the cost of the breakfast for what I got. My husband fared better with his choice (the French Toast I think - but still a small amount for what you paid for). If you are going to eat at their restaurant for breakfast, the food is good, but go for the "breakfast bar". Don't go for the crepes. Far too drenched in syrup and nothing else with it - I think the berries had been frozen - I was not impressed. Not much to go on for the day. The coffee was good. A great little diner just down the street (on the way to Times Square) was very "New York" and had great All American food at a very reasonable price. Sorry I can't remember the name of it. One thing is for sure, there is plenty of food in NY - sure glad I was able to walk all over the city to burn off the calories!
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this fine hotel. We probably would not have been able to afford staying there without the good rate we had through our Entertainment Book. It was a bit of luxury that we do not often get to treat ourselves to.
