I stayed here because it was convenient for a late opera performance. The hotel is a perfect location, just a short walk to the MET. The service was great and food is delicious! I'm looking forward to staying again.

No kettle, only a Keurig coffee machine. They have room service, but we never tried it since we were up early most mornings and went to Starbucks. WiFi was a charge... VERY expensive!!
