Our favourite rooms
Snag PH03 for its ample terrace, which has sunloungers, topiary and prime views of the Empire State Building. Inside, the corner room also has a spacious built-in closet if you plan to settle in. Downstairs, Executive room 1209 is one of the largest, with large windows facing north and west.
Bring cards or games to play in the lobby-lounge: it’s a bright, hip meeting spot, and the ideal place to hang out at the end of the day.
Rooms 505 (a Superior) and 615 (an Executive) are wheelchair-accessible, with roll-in showers.
Baby cots can be added to rooms free, and the restaurant can adapt meals for little diners. The hotel does not offer babysitting, but staff can fix you up with a local sitter ($20 an hour).
