Pros:I love this hotel.
Cons:The tech needs a minor facelift. I love the USB ports in the plug ins and alarm, but the Apple connection stuff is a decade old and Apple always changes their stuff just enough that you have to keep upgrading random toys like iPads, which sucks because even an old iPad can do some basic stuff like watch Netflix and control your AirPlay Spotify and those things, which is way more valuable than if you buy an app for a buck and you play it for a week and then check a month later and its third on your list for storage used. So certain things I've had to upgrade and now I'm a plugin short, which is a super first world problem sounding issue. Just sayin', the whole thing seems fishy to me. This hotel is nice. I'd absolutely stay there again, and there's a Blue Bottel coffee like 3 doors down, which is nice because New Yorkers are an amazing group of people that I love, but they don't drink good coffee. There are Starbucks everywhere and they always taste burned (burnt?) to me. Blue Bottle is a bit pretentious, but when you're a great coffee in a great city, you're winning. Also, Bryant Park is across the street from the hotel, and they do a bunch of cool little concerts and stuff in that park, and they keep it clean and there is a solid brunch place in there and a Grill. Oh, yeah, and the elevators at the hotel are some weird cross between a coffin and a bad 70's porno shoot. It's really dark and there may be velvet on the walls, but it's too dark to tell. If you're in there with another person, it's a little tight. A person or two with luggage? Really tight. That's a hard one to fix, though. You'd be out of commission the entire time because it's the only way up. Maybe just brighten it a little bit. The bar downstairs used to be solid and I bet still is, but I didn't go down there this trip. It is Friday night and I just wrote that. That is not a good life sign.
