Excellent hotel to get away from the crowds of Time Square. Great hotel staff and right across the street from Central Park. We stayed there to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade and for several weekend get aways.

The bar makes a great cosmopolitan and the hamburgers are to die for. Pricey though. The waiter was funny and very accommodating.
