Great location for Midtown business or shopping, and easy access to several subway lines. My room faced the back - which was fine - I didn't need a view. Importantly, it was quiet and had blackout curtains. AC was quiet, effective with room controls that actually work - not often true in other hotels. The room had a good coffee maker and a safe - again not always found in NYC 4 star hotels. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The reason for the 4-star rating is there didn't appear to be any security on the first floor level where you enter the hotel before taking an elevator to the 2nd floor to check-in. While you need a key to go to higher levels, I worry that it would be too easy for someone to enter behind another person. Yes, this could happen in any hotel, but somehow I would prefer to have more visible staff/security at least at the street level.More
