Advantages well located polite service
Disadvantages overpriced food
A short block walk or two brings you to the Rockerfeller Centre home to NBC and radio city music hall. Quite amazing how close it all is. We easily walked to Timesquare most days as well, and it was about a 5 dollar cab ride in light traffic.
The hotel is exceptionally located on the east side of Manhattan. It is quite a nice affluent neighborhood which is around the corner from the Waldorf Astoria on Park Ave and the Palace.
There was minimal noise heard from our room apart from the usual hussle of the city (the odd police siren etc)This is a highly ideal spot for sight seeing, there is a subway a block away that takes you to downtown/village/wall street etc, or uptown to the park. Macys/bloomingdales is walking distance uptown and the MoMa is a few blocks north as well.
Standard check in time is 3pm and our bags were held free of charge till then. There were ample staff and we were seen to immediately, our bags were taken from the cab and we were shown the way. I was given a temporary key to use the lavatories in the lobby as well as our room was not ready yet. A credit card was need for hold of incidentals which we were unaware of and caused some problems as we had not informed them we were traveling, but was handled with ease by the hotel and all was dealt with quickly.
The room we had was standard as said. It was comfortable enough, but you wouldn't want to have too much luggage. The bathroom was quite ample however, easily moved around in there. The bed was well made and all was clean and proper. The bed was very comfortable with a variety of pillows.
The hotel was very environmentally friendly and did not like to waste water and such by washing every day, so they had a clear policy for towels and sheets which both my partner and i appreciated very much,AMENTITIES
There is complimentary luggage check (Except on check out its 2 dollars an item)
safety deposit boxes
bell hop (who is exceptional at getting taxis)
A main bar with a sushi specialty restaurant
The favorite of mine was a Starbucks in the lobby.
Raffles (American) too over priced by our standards for what we received. We ate across the road the remainder of the trip.
