Why we like it

  • Incredible views of Central Park, though you do need to pay extra for them

  • The new Digital Internet TV system is great for streaming content conveniently
  • Staff is responsive and accommodating

What you need to know

  • There is an executive lounge at the property, but it isn't anything to write home about
  • Make sure to get a view upgrade, or you will be looking at a brick wall
  • This hotel was originally finished in 1931 and is a beautiful historic building
  • WiFi comes with a surcharge
  • Room service is available 24/7
