“A night at the museum”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

Once you step into this place you feel like you're in the apartment of your rich, old Parisian aunt. Everything is decorated in a French chateau style, and the room even smells a little bit that way - in a good way. You may think everything looks really old, but on second look you realize its probably not and its all very well maintained and very clean. The room was big for New York, the bathroom clean and functional, but no tub just a shower. I had a partial view and the room was facing the back, so no street noise. My rate included breakfast and early evening wine and cheese snacks so overall it was a total steal. The place is somewhat upscale, and definitely for the older, more conservative set. No hipsters and party lounges here. Which is just fine with me. The staff is very friendly. Is this really the #5 hotel out of all Manhattan hotels on Tripadvisor? That seems a bit high, but it is a nice place never the less.

Saw all the great reviews of this hotel and decided to stay here for 6 nights.
It lived up to all the positive comments.
Wonderful location near Central Park which was good as I did a race in the Park on Saturday and also near the Theatre District,MOMA and Museum Mile.
Helpful, friendly staff and a good breakfast.
We stayed in a suite which was just really relaxing.
However we did find the bathroom a bit small and we had an electricity failure when we used the har dryer.
Our final point is on street noise. When we checked in we had asked for a high,quiet room with a view and the check in guy was honest enough to say that it was difficult to get all three so we plumped for high with a view.
He did explain that he would move us to a quieter room if we found the noise troublesome.
We seemed to notice the noise more as the break went on but were happy that we stayed where we are but if it annoys you then go for the back.

I hate to write a positive review, because I don't want to help to make it so popular that we can never get a reservation. The Hotel is beautiful. The staff are attentive. The breakfast is delicious and relaxing. Only positives!!!!

Great hotel. I saw the reviews on Trip Advisor which is why we booked, but we fell in love. Location is absolutely perfect. Staff is great. The wine and cheese in the evening is simply "lovely".
Can't wait to go back.
