AAA Inspector Notes
At this classic hotel, an exquisite renovation has re-created a Gilded Age atmosphere, but with modern functionality. Rooms can vary widely in size, from grand to standard, but all are well-appointed. The sprawling, ultra-luxurious Presidential Suite is spectacular, and decorated, as is much of the hotel, in an early American elite, Federalist style. With connected areas for elegant reception and dining, as well as for support staff or a security contingent, the suite is among the best designed lodgings in New York for a bona fide VIP and their traveling entourage. The hotel also has a number of one-bedroom suites that are highly prized for their fine layout and comfort.
Smoke free premises. 702 units, some two bedrooms. 14 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).
