Not too expensive, not too cheap, not too stylish, not too dowdy, the Chandler hits that perfect median. A step down from a boutique hotel, it still has enough style to be several big steps up from the Holiday Inn. The rooms are a good size by NYC standards and offer all the little things that warm the business travelers' heart: Frette towels, Aveda products, an iPod dock, free (and fast and functional) wireless, flatscreen LG TV, lots of power outlets. The staff were all kind and efficient. The location isn't sexy but it is very convenient, a few blocks away from Herald Square and Penn Station, Korean Kanyon, the Empire State. 31st street is quiet, so you'll be able to sleep even if you're on the street side, even on a Friday night. The furnishings and fittings are all new, and the bathrooms are tile and glass and porcelain, not a piece of molded plastic in sight. But here let me selfishly take the chance to issue an open plea to hotel designers: please stop with the overhead rainfall showerheads. Those of us of the female persuasion who would prefer not get our hair wet each time we bathe would appreciate it. Thank you.
