Nice hotel that has a big lobby and decent size rooms. Very close to all the shops on Fifth Ave plus Time Square. Great small breakfast place on corner that has wonderful options for sitting outside or on the go.

The service was incredible - particularly Jessica or Jennifer (front desk). We had a problem when we first arrived and she fixed it-twice haha. The rest of the week they helped with every needed detail.
