The Hot Zone had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful boutique hotel recently for the 4th of July and had such a memorable experience. As soon as we walked in the lobby, we were greeted with a courteous smile and asked if we needed assistance with our luggage. The receptionist was equally as courteous and professional which really made a great first impression.
The receptionists at the concierge was very nice and upgraded us to a Classic King Suite. As we entered our room there was a our living room with a couch and pull out sofa bed, two soft plush chairs and living room table. We had two flat screen TV’s, nice size bathroom and refrigerator. Our room was on the 12th floor right next to the rooftop garden with a view of Park Ave. This room fulfills all needs for anyone looking for the amenities of their own home with a beautiful rooftop garden adjacent to relax and unwind with a glass of wine, day or night.
We had a king size bed in our room which was so soft and comfortable, made it almost impossible to check out the next morning…just wanted to sleep in it forever.
After we settled in the room and dropped off our bags, it was time to hit the beautiful Grand Lobby which has live piano music to enjoy with your fine wine and cheese. Guests enjoy a complimentary wine & hors d’oeuvres reception every evening from 5pm – 8pm. The complimentary evening reception includes Prosecco, fine wines, imported and domestic cheeses, fresh bread, crackers, and crudités. This is a perfect way to unwind a bit and kick-start your night in NYC where you get to meet plenty of people and engage in some entertaining conversations with new friends. There’s also tea, coffee, cookies and whole fruits available to guests in the Grand Lobby throughout day.
