          My friends and I were genuinely impressed by the professional, yet friendly hotel employees; they were delightful. The decor, space, and ambiance are delightful - - cozy and pleasant.

          This hotel was in a good location for the museums and central park. The breakfast is adequate and the happy hour is a nice touch. I would certainly stay here again should I visit New York, the room was small but comfortable.

          There is a parking garage almost directly across the street. Don't remember the name. I would call the hotel and ask. As I remember, the cost was reasonable for NYC.
