We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay from 29 Apr - 6 May 14. Although our rooms weren't ready on arrival, we were directed to a room with complimentary coffee, while we waited.
After a long day travelling, the free wine and cheese tasting on Tuesday evening was also very welcome.
Our Premier Queen room was tiny in comparison to the Contemporary Double Deluxe my 85yr old Mother in Law and her 82yr old friend shared but both were extremely clean and comfortable. As a trade off between bath and coffee maker, I will go for the the CDD, for the bath, next time. Noise was not an issue, although it might be if you use the air-con in summer; we didn't need to.
The hotel is ideally situated for either walking to or catching the subway to all the major attractions. We bought tickets, from the concierge, to Liberty and Ellis Islands, which included refillable $10 Metro tickets. However, if you want military/veteran discount, you will need to buy at the attraction (Well worth asking at Top of the Rock & USS Intrepid.)
The complimentary breakfast menu is limited but extremely fresh. Seating is haphazard so it's better to go early or you might end up eating off your knee.
The food in the bar/grill is very good and served by attentive, polite staff. We pick out Brett and Ruslan for special thank yous, along with Christina, Helena, Abrahim, Matthew, James and Dean. Each went out of their way to help us make the most of our holiday, whether by providing good service and/or information about New York. I do not hesitate in recommending this hotel and will definitely stay there again.
