    First NYC visit

    Beautiful hotel close to Times square. We were on floor 20 so had fab viwes. Excellent restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. Lots of choice. Staff also very nice. We were in NYC the week before NY closed their doors to covid. So as our trip progressed things were slowly closing down. We managed to do all the main attractions, we walked nearly 50 miles in 4 1/2 days. We had a awesome time and cant wait to go again. If you needing a snack juniors is fab and buffalo wild wings across the street from the hotel

    excellent hotel and staff

    We stayed at the hotel in December 2019, New York was wonderful, the staff and hotel very good and the resturant food was excellent. The hotel is a short walk from Times Square, and there is plenty to do and see.

    Fantastic hotel

    We stayed here for three nights during a long weekend break to New York. Hotel is lovely, we booked an executive room which gave us access to a lounge with drinks, tea/coffee and snacks like crisps and it was worth it. We were given a room on 22nd floor with a balcony with the most amazing views of New York! We got engaged on the balcony during sunset with absolutely stunning views. We‘re really looking forward to coming back to this hotel after coronavirus once we can travel again.
