This hotel is reached from street level entrances on both 41st and 42nd street midway between 7th and 8th avenues. Once inside either entrance, you enter an elevator that takes you to the hotel lobby, which is ~ 20 floors above street level. We had a one night stay here this past week. On checking in at 2:30pm, on a Monday, we were surprised to be offered a pick of any floor we wanted as long as we were ok with two double beds, since all the kings were only available on the lower floors (closer to street noise). We opted for the 42nd street side of the hotel and were on the 42nd floor. For a hotel in the heart of Times Sq., we had minimal street noise, and the view, although only a partial one looking onto Times Square, was still quite interesting. The room was, for NYC, of good size: however the bathroom was tight (although there was a tub/shower combo, the tub was 3/4 length). The room was an updated room. Since the mini bar refrigerators are automated and therefore prevented us from storing anything, housekeeping readily brought a mini refrigerator when we asked, (w/no charge). Breakfast is served in the restaurant/bar adjacent to the lobby, which is either a hot buffet or one can order from the menu. As Golds, we received a complimentary hot buffet breakfast for both of us. The breakfast was good. We did not have any other meals or drinks at this hotel. We found the front desk staff to be uniformly quite personable in our interactions with them. We would certainly consider returning.
