Stayed mid December. Great location just round the corner from Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building (don't forget to pop in the foyer). Used the efficient Newark express coach transfer from Newark airport which conveniently drops off only one block south of this hotel. Only 5 minute walk to hotel which felt safe even arriving very late at night. Only used subway three times during our stay. Once to lower manhattan to visit Statue of Liberty, walk the financial district and visit 9/11 memorial. Second time to Brooklyn to walk bridge back to Manhattan and thirdly to Times Square in the evening (would probably have walked during the day). With GCS just across the road all these journeys were simple and easy to access. Everywhere else , including all the main attractions, Rockafeller, Empire State, Central Park, 5th Avenue, and shops Bloomingdales and Macys, are all within easy walking distance. For our first visit, the location was just perfect!
Hotel Staff were very friendly. No problems so no need to ask for extra help but felt sure they would be happy to help if needed. Rooms very clean and good size. Beds comfy. Had room facing central space so no view. But in fact we spent so little time in room it did not matter. Coffee machine in room for morning wake me up came in handy and ironing board and iron could come in useful for some! Only negative would be the shower which was rather weak.
If we visit New York again (which we really really want to) we will definitely stay here.
