We stayed for 3 nights for our anniversary. Picked this hotel because we like the upper west side and it is right next to central park and the subway. Can't beat the location and quiet boutique feel. We'll probably return.

I've stayed in all the various suites the hotel offers. They are all spacious, but avoid the ones with the single beds as they tend to be squeezed into smaller spaces in the hotel.
