We didn't really spend a lot of time at the hotel, but the room and bed were comfortable. Our room wasn't huge, but that's OK. Did enjoy dinner at the latin restaurant on premises. Good food and a nice cocktail menu.
Pros: Nice location -- half block from central park. Nice restaurant and bar on premises. Clean, comfortable accommodations.
Cons: Not really. Remember, you are in the big city and nice places can be expensive.
