First of all, I will try not to compare this to the top luxury hotels in NYC. As far as the boutique hotels, I give it a 4 1/2. Front desk, doorman, and breakfast staff are all excellent and helpful. My room (a corner suite) was very large and nicely furnished. It appeared first rate in every way except I give the bed a 3/5. The bathroom was large enough and well illuminated. It was quiet even though it is right on Park Avenue. The rooms could be darkened completely to block out the early morning sun. The complementary breakfast was very adequate with super coffee available all day. The afternoon wine and cheese looked good but I never had to chance to sample it. The rooftop bar is very nice however service can be a little slow and many tables were reserved hours in advance. It is still a nice place to have a drink in good weather.
Location - you must understand that this hotel is centrally located between everything you want to see in NYC but close to nothing special. This may be an advantage however, you will be walking a long way (25 mins) to Broadway shows and Central Park to the north and a long way south to the villages (25 mins) and Wall Street below. There is a subway stop 2 blocks away and cabs are plentiful with little competition for their services. With the large size of the hotel rooms, their excellent condition, and the friendly staff, I felt this hotel is fairly priced and I would stay here again and will recommend it to friends as long as I explain the location.
