Dining

The Pump Room
The new food concept was created by world-renowned and James Beard award winning chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The restaurant will offer reasonably priced, delicious favorites in a relaxed, comfortable environment. A selection of the original Pump Room classics from 1938 will be re-created by Jean-Georges. He will also support local purveyors, regional flavors and offer a "farm to table" experience as well as a daily special chef's tasting menu of the most unique creations. At night, the restaurant's bar will be transformed into a supper club recapturing the glamor of the 30's and 40's with a modern twist. Offerings will include light tapas style food including Asian, Indian and other global specialties, exotic cocktails, international and domestic bottled and draught beer and great music. Guests can enjoy the Pump Room for Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, after work Happy Hour, Dinner, Late Night Supper and midnight omlettes.
Library
Reminiscent of 1950's American and European coffee houses and French patisseries, The Library houses a coffee bar during the day offering coffee drinks from around the globe (cafe con leche, latte, cappuccino, cafe au lait and more) with La Colombe Coffee's wide variety of traditional and exotic coffees from Brazil, Columbia, Honduras, Mexico, Ethiopia, El Salvador, Sumatra, Tanzania and Rwanda as well as housemade, morning and afternoon baked goods, pastries, sandwiches, sushi, and other specialties by Jean-George Vongerichten. Custom blackened steel coffee tables with custom handmade concrete tops and bleached oak cocktail tables with oil-rubbed bronze bases are perfect for enjoying coffee and a snack or an evening drink and light meal.

Minimal is right!

This used to be the beautiful Ambassador East and was renovated. The room was the biggest disappointment! It looks like someone threw an Ikea bed in and walked away! There are no amenities: no bathrobe, no makeup mirror, no conditioner, no bed quilt, no artwork on the plain white walls, no alarm clock, radio! Anyone who likes this place is used to Motel 6! Also, the sink faucet was broken and the towel hook fell off the wall. We were only given 2 bath towels. There is no coffee and the coffee bar in the lobby charged $9.00 for a latte. We will never go back and when the Sutton Place reopens as the Thompson we will head over there!

Lovely Room

We stayed here for a weekend, and it was wonderful. Only thing we missed was a pool or some sort of rooftop to hang out in. Other than that it was great.

The service was fabulous. Everyone was over the top helpful. Loved the action at the bar at night and the quiet morning coffee and breakfast. Classic games in the lobby adds a nice touch.
