One block from Barney’s and the shops on Madison Ave. and 2 1/2 blocks from Bloomingdale’s. Close to some wonderful restaurants as well. The newly renovated hotel looks great, with some of the largest bedrooms in New York. The new gym is a big improvement and the salon and spa are expensive, but convenient and top notch. Eating breakfast is a who’s who of “power breakfasts”, you never know which celebrity, socialite or politician you will spot. The new menu is also much improved since the renovation. The bar also always seems to be hopping.
