We stayed on the Jolly Madison (now NH) from the 19 to 22 March. The location is superb, you can walk to Grand Central Station, Times Square, Fifth Av., Empire State, even to Central Park. You can't beat that.
The personnel on the reception was not friendly and not eager to help. We had made reservations thru NH World and we had some trouble with it (it was prepaid) and they didn't even bother to call them, because it was a long distance call. In the mean time we called NH and after they received a call from the corporate office, everything was solved.
The breakfast buffet is good, european style, bread, cheese and ham. Good quality food. Of course, you don't expect a lot of fresh food, but is very good. The seating for parties of 3 or more is difficult because the room is small and they only have 3 big tables. Very good before going to walk the city.
The rooms are small and old. My room was clean, very small space for the luggage, and the bathroom was clean. I know that NY hotels are this way, but as I am used to bigger rooms, it felt odd, but hey.. you are here to know the city, so I wasn't very worried about this.
In general, this hotel has great location, you can rest and have breakfast and get to know the city at your own pace. We took the shuttle from the airport to Grand Central and we walked the 2 blocks and saved on the taxi.
