We arrived at the New Yorker three hours early for check in on July 4th, hoping to at least be able to drop off our bags and even better if we could actually get into our room early. Upon arrival there was some kind of confusion over the accommodations for a tower suite I had booked on a travel site I had not used before, but had found through Kayak.
Oneida (sp?) at the front desk said not to worry, and in fact upgraded us for free to an executive suite with a huge balcony overlooking Manhattan. My wife and two kids could not believe what an unbelievable room we had and the balcony was such a huge hit it was hard to get them out the door to go explore NYC. The suite was immaculate and the queen size sleeper sofa was excellent for the kids in the main living room.
The hotel had a classic old school Manhattan feel, but updated enough to not feel out of date. Cool to know the likes of Muhammad Ali, Joe DiMaggio, JFK, etc had stayed there back in the day. Enjoyed breakfast downstairs at the Tick Tock Diner, quick service and good food.
34th and 8th was a great location since we needed the subway to hit all the tourist stops, and Penn Station is right there. Not a bad walk to Times Square. Would definitely stay there again on a future visit from NC.
