When in NYC you must try the dining experience of Eataly located at 200 5th Ave. There are 27 Eataly stores in the world 10 of which are located in Italy. Down the street is ABC Carpet and Home, a NYC icon. Happy Travels

Great hotel but overpriced

I loved this hotel the locations was fantastic when you walk inside you can certainly see it's not an ordinary hotel. The only things that will keep me from coming back is that for 300.00 a night I expected more of the rooms. The rooms were pretty but nothing special not for that price. I can get a 150 dollar hotel here in the US and Italy and get a very clean hotel with a nice vestibule and have a kitchenette and living room. You have to pay for wifi, I couldn't believe it. No microwave I know it's small and may be cheesy but I had a friend come with us and she's on a special diet so instead of being able to heat her oatmeal and special prescription type diet food we had to comb the city looking for a place where she could eat. I enjoyed my stay but knowing what I know now I won't stay here again or recommend it. You just don't get what you pay for.

Perfect location, luxurious

The hotel was beautiful and the room comfortable. I love staying in historic hotels that have a cozy feel to them. It is wonderful that, even with the shades drawn, I knew where I was because it didn't look like every other hotel in the chain. The location was perfect - a few short blocks from Grand Central, which made the subway very accessible. The staff was incredibly helpful as well - hailing a cab was a simple matter of talking to the doorman. I'm a native NYer living in SC, and I will be using this hotel the next time I'm in NYC.

Have an unfilled hour? Take the short walk to Grand Central! It's not usually something people think to do in NYC, but it is a work of art, inside and out.

Fantastic Hotel for business or pleasure!

Had a pleasant stay at this hotel. The staff were courteous, the location is second to none (surrounded by other luxury hotels including the Waldorf Astoria) and the ambiance in the hotel lobby is quite elegant. I'll not only recommend it to others, but will gladly stay there again.

Comfortable, but pricey

If you're looking to spend enough money to feed a small nation and still be charged for wifi, this is the hotel for you. Beyond the general costs, this hotel is beautiful, comfortable, and located only a ten minute walk from Times Square. The people were friendly and accommodating. You're going to spend a lot in New York no matter what, this is certainly a cheaper option with, still, very nice digs.

Decent hotel in Midtown East

Hotel rooms were good size. I had a room with 2 double beds. It was spacious for an NYC htoel. However, the bathrooms are small and could use some renovating. Subway is only 2 blocks away. Fairly quiet neighborhood with easy access to/from LaGuardia airport.
