    My wife and I are coming to the April 10 performance at the Met. Will the rooftop bar be open around that date? What rooms and/or floors would you recommend for a comfortable stay? I am aware that met-view rooms are on offer. If anyone can provide more specific recommendations, I'd be very grateful.

    Rooftop bar is open year round, which is really nice. I think we stayed on the 3rd floor and we had a great view to the avenue and Lincoln Center. Go for it. You'll enjoy this hotel.
