My husband was working in New York while I was there for a break. We loved the location of the hotel, near Central Park, Apple store and Fifth Avenue. It was more self catering than a normal hotel - housekeeping come once a week (if staying for a week) which was adequate, but we would have liked a few cleaning products supplied for us to use in the meantime. There was a fridge, microwave, sink and it was equipped with crockery and cutlery as well as washing up liquid, saving money on normal hotel charges for drinks and food. There was no safe in the room, which was a pain, so we felt we had to take valuables out with us. There was a free on site laundry room, with washing powder supplied, which was really handy. The cafe was dreadful, serving cold food after a long wait and constant chasing of food and drink - don't bother paying extra - other places nearby. The hotel provides umbrellas when it rains, which was useful. The staff were great, always courteous and helpful. A good experience overall.
