My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Metro as the first stop on our honeymoon in the US, from the UK. We arrived at around 11.30pm in a taxi from JFK, and were able to check in really quickly with a lovely friendly guy on reception.
We arrived to a lovely bottle of rose sparking wine in an Ice bucket and a card from the hotel staff congratulating us on our marriage and wishing us a happy honeymoon, which was a lovely touch after a long journey.
The rooms are fairly small, but not cramped. Our Virgin rep recommended the hotel to us as she said it's quite boutiquey, and I'd agree with this. The room and bathroom were both quite plush, and the free coke in the fridge was a very welcome extra in a very hot New York! The air con was a life saver too!
The complimentary breakfast was lovely; a nice relaxed dining room and lots of options - several cereals, fruit, yoghurt, bagels, toast and muffins, with butter, jam and cream cheese. Really lovely quality and we enjoyed our breakfast each day. In fact staying at the doubletree Hilton in Washington a few days later we both notes that their continental breakfast (not complimentary) wasn't nearly as nice as the Metro!
We'd definitely stay at the metro again; it's in a really central location - you can see Macy's at the end of the street, and the subway is no more than a 30 second walk away. And it's quality hotel, without the attitude and pretence of the Waldorf Astoria where we stayed last time, and hated.
Also the staff are an asset to the hotel, the door guy and concierge gave us excellent tips on where to eat, theatre tickets and where to visit during our stay, and they are so genuinely welcoming, we were really impressed with this.
