The young staff seemed actually happy to have us; they thought of ways to make every request happen. High ceilings and a wall of window with a Juliette balcony make the room spacious. Closet doors have substantial weight and mirrors front and back; easy to check appearances. Robes and slippers are provided; very relaxing. The bathroom counter is easily six feet long and close to two feet wide and there is also a glass shelf. Hot water comes on instantly and stays hot; water pressure is very good. WiFi is free, password protected and is always available; not slow, not spotty. Housekeeping leaves clean, thick towels both morning and night. Breakfast in the Art Deco lobby is generous: baked goods, yogurt, cereals, fresh fruit, hard-cooked eggs. Coffee/tea/espresso machine is on 24 hours a day. Wine, cheese, cookies, olives and so forth are out late day to early evening, accompanying the live piano music. Both breakfast and wine service are ostensibly buffet, but the charming staff happily serves guests. The roof-top area is inviting with it's many teak seating areas and colorful plantings. The 6 train is two blocks away. From start to finish, this is a wonderful place.
