We booked a deluxe room, which is quite large, having a desk and chaise lounge in addition to a king sized bed.
A Porter helped with the luggage as we were checked in quite early (10 am) - we had expected a need to store luggage and wait in the lobby or walk around town until afternoon check-in, but were pleased we were able to immediately crash from our long flight.
The lobby is beautiful, the included buffet breakfast sumptuous, and the staff is plentiful and friendly.
Alcoholic drinks, however, are measured very carefully and priced by NYC standards - definitely not a bargain!
Have only eaten dinner once at the restaurant so will delay review on that until we have more experience.
If you have the funds, I highly recommend the accommodations.
