We bought a Living Social promo weekend to The Gotham and I am so glad we did. We were welcomed by Frank the doorman (from Cameroon who is studying to be a translator and speaks 4 languages!) who greeted us with a big smile and a glass of wine at the door. He showed us to our room which was a sizable room with a king size bed made up with lovely soft linens, down feather bed and comforter and loads of soft pillow (they had to switch it all out for my husband's allergies which they did quickly and without hesitation). I had requested a separate bed for my 7-yr old daughter which was made up and ready to go as promised. Our room had a bottle of Prosecco chilling on ice for us and a plate of cookies ready for my daughter - they thought of everything! Loved that the room had an iPod docking station making it easy to play some tunes while we unpacked and enjoyed our "snacks." Loved that they had umbrellas in the room as we walked to dinner that night and brought them in case and were caught in a deluge.
We never ate at the restaurant, TenPenny, for dinner but we did have breakfast there both mornings, a simple continental breakfast which worked for us just fine. The hotel staff were all very friendly, from the manager to the repairmen we encountered in the elevator. The location is fantastic and central for all site seeing in NYC. I don't know what the full rate is for this hotel as I had a deal but I thought it was a great stay. Only disappointment was the much touted balcony which was a tiny area looking out at the exterior walls of the adjacent buildings and into a dark alley. We were on the 18th floor and there was nothing to look at but the brick walls of the other buildings. But we weren't in the room much so it didn't matter. Bathrooms all furnished with contemporary fixtures and a shower with an overhead "rain" fixture or the option to use a handheld shower head. I would definitely return - the staff are lovely and want you to have a great time.
