Our check-in experience was simple and quick. The lobby was spotless. They were having a wine tasting for guests when we checked in. How's THAT for a welcome! The room was on the small side but it was just fine. One of the greatest museums in the WORLD, the American Museum of Natural History, is a 10 minute walk away. Zabars, one of the most famous deli's in the WORLD, is on the next block - literally. One night we just picked up an assortment of yummy deli salads and sandwiches. It was DELICIOUS!
The restaurant was good - they have you as a captive audience, which is why we went there the first night. But here's a useful tidbit. Right across the street is a little Italian restaurant called Coppolas. It looks like a dive from the entrance. It is not. It was great. They make a vodka sauce for pasta which sounds weird. It was delicious!! There is also a lovely coffee shop a half a block west on 79th St called Irving Farm. I had a delicious latte with a Whitefish salad on a bagel one morning. So good.
