I was put up here for the week by a client after the usual hotel I stay at fell through, and it was a pleasure. The room I was in was wonderful, though I didn't get the view of the city or park that other rooms would have. I'd like to complement them on being the first hotel I have stayed in where they actually have HDTV programming for the HDTV's (everyone else just has stretched standard TV signals on their expensive LCD TV's I find). The hotel gym was by far the best I've had in the past year on the road, with plenty of cardio equipment with individual LCD TV's, and a good selection of machine and free weights as well. The shower in my room was the best I've experienced as well, tons of pressure.
The only downsides to the hotel were that the wireless internet access was fairly slow, and would drop sometimes for a few seconds, and it just felt strange to me to have someone run the elevator for me. I didn't like having someone know that I was just stepping out to grab a burger down the street.
It's out of my price range when I come to NYC for fun unfortunately, but I do hope that work can put me up here again the next time I'm in town for business.
