This hotel is lovely albeit an older facility. The room was very clean and had excellent bedding and comfortable beds. The bathroom was small but expected for NYC. Staff was helpful. There is dining on site but it is rather pricey. Location is
excellent and the door men were most helpful with cabs and information.
If you want to stay close to the midtown attractions without being in the middle of the crowds, this hotel is a good choice. It is just off Park Ave on 48th, so you are close to shopping on Fifth and Times Square or Central Park are an easy walk.
Grand Central is a couple of blocks away so you can catch almost any train easily. Hotel itself is nice but could use a touch of remodeling. My biggest gripe was the water pressure in the shower. But, overall it is well maintained and has a nice feel as you enter through the lobby. Kuerig coffee maker in the rooms was a nice touch. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Da Ciro's restaurant on Lexington has great wood fired pizza and other wonderful Italian dishes in a small little spot in Murray Hill. Great service too.
Very convenient and good hotel, with great location
Friendly and nice atmosphere, both in th lobby and in the rooms. Not particularily modern, but still gives the impression of quality. The bathroom in my room could need a certain face-lift, but it was clean and nice anyway.
Hotel staff is very helpful. We had a great chat with the doorman. Most helpful I've had at a hotel. Downside: no free internet really except for 30 minutes of wifi in the lobby. Rooms could use a touch-up and some modernization, but are pretty
big for NYC. Great location as its a walk away from everything, but not exactly in the most crowded places.
