Excellent boutique hotel in a great location

Posted Aug 29, 2017
We chose this hotel because of it's location, perfect for sightseeing and railway travel. The hotel has a great feel. Boutique hotel style but still big enough to have great facilities such as the free breakfast lounge. The rooftop lounge is nice but too small. A bit of creative thinking could make the outside lounge much more interesting.

Small hotel with a big heart

Posted Aug 22, 2017
Pros: Very quiet and calm. Hundreds of books available to read. Daily newspapers in the breakfast room. Every evening between 5-8 free cheese and wine.
Cons: Noise from sash window and maybe curtains instead of the blind may have helped that and to keep the room darker too.
Location: A 5 minute walk to the Public Library and Bryant Park behind it. Close to Grand Central Terminal and a 30 minute walk to Central Park
We upgraded to a Queen Deluxe room. Very comfortable with a list of extras that could be delivered via a call to Reception. Gilchrist & Soames toiletries in the shower room replenished when used. Clean flannels and towels morning and night. Always hot water and a good shower. Plentiful daily breakfast consisting of fresh fruit, dried fruits, yogurt,cereals, fruit juice,boiled eggs,bagels, bread and croissants. Tea,coffee ,water and snacks available 24hours a day.

Second stay here; wonderful place to stay when in town for the theater as it is a short walk; also right next to Grand Central for getting all around the city. Excellent atmosphere and very quiet for NYC.

Lives up to its high ratings

Posted May 28, 2017
Pros: Location, 24 hour beverages (tea, coffee, pastries, fruit etc), accommodating staff, comfy beds
Cons: Ummmmmm, can't think of anything.
Location: Come on, it's on Madison Avenue, round the corner from Grand Central, up the street from Times Square, a hop away from Bryant Park!
This hotel was every bit as good as the high ratings suggest. Excellent location, wonderful staff, small enough to feel cosy yet still providing all the important touches a hotel should have and more. Highly recommend.
