Tagging along with husband for an annual conference (now in successive years) I use this hotel for what it offers. It certainly is not the plushest hotel in the world, but it offers a fab location for theatre, sightseeing and a welcome haven from the busy city after a long day.
Being in NYC during the holiday season is both exciting and exhausting. Rockefeller Center is within walking distance as is Broadway! Public transportation is easily available as are taxis and private cars for adventures further afield. If one wants to relax early afternoon after a morning outing before going out again in the evening this location allows for that respite.
Rooms are rather basic modern, but clean and comfortable. Bathrooms border on the small side. Our sink drained slowly which I noted at checkout--my lapse as I wasn't in the room long enough to think about it. Too many places to see and experience.
I loved the proximity to Grand Central Terminal. If you have time be sure to rent the audio tour and enjoy the history of the Vanderbilts, railways, and station restoration. I had an excellent Bordeaux and the private Campbell Apartments one evening prior to a play.
While I did not use this hotel service because of time constraints I found it quite intriguing. The hotel offers a woman's space amenity. If a woman is perhaps traveling alone and doesn't want to stay sequestered in her room she can comfortably adjourn to a specific location/event for women. Also I did not use any spa services available so cannot comment on those.
