I stayed on my own here for 3 nights whilst visiting NYC for a friends wedding. First time in the city and was SO SO pleased that I chose to stay at this hotel.
LOCATION: It really was perfectly located for exploring all of the Manhattan tourist sites. Times Square 1min, The Rockefeller 7mins. Central Park 15mins Chrysler Building 15mins. Grand Central Terminal 15min. Even mid town and the downtown areas including the 9/11 memorial are walkable from here say just over an hour and if you don`t fancy walking that, the subway is 5mins round the corner. The road it`s in is very quiet and feels very safe too even after midnight. You name it and it`s near here including the Theatres, plenty of stores, bars and Irish pubs!
Helpful at all times. Always had security in the foyer. Felt very well run and safe.
ROOM: The room I had was perfect for me size wise and I really liked the interior. I was on the 9th floor right underneath the Haven rooftop bar and by the main entrance to the bar and I had no noisy experiences at all. The bed and pillows were especially comfortable and of a decent quality, the two windows in my room had blackout blinds and that all combined to help me get 3 very good nights sleep! The decor was modern, clean and sharp. The iPod docking station, chandalier, air con, mini bar and free wi-fi were all nice touches. Must also too comment on the maids - excellent. My room was always attended to in the morning and the bed turned down in the evening but was never once disturbed by or even saw a maid - very discreet service.
I only took this the first morning and didn`t bother the other two mornings. OK for a bit of orange juice, coffee, bagels and toast but that was about it. If you want lots of options for breakfast you are better off getting out to one of the variety of places nearby for a better selection and experience. Please don`t let this put you off as you`d miss out on the next bit.......
HAVEN ROOF TOP BAR:
Surely one of the most chilled and coolest places I have ever had refreshments. A great view and attentive staff. Residents mix with non residents and this helps create a really special atmosphere - it`s a bit of a gem.
Staying at such a convenient, well run and stylish hotel definitely enhanced my stay in NYC - thank you.
