Left on 04/15/2012 for a stay in March 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Apr 15, 2012Stayed Mar 2012
This was a truly memorable stay. I stayed here in March and was so comfortable that I didn't want to leave.
On my arrival I was greeted by the very warm and welcoming proprietor Lauren who showed me around and made me feel right at home, New York style.
Everything about the residence was great. Fantastically comfortable bed, gorgeous crisp linen and the decor was so fresh and clean. The kitchen was fully equipped with quality appliances and it had a beautiful bathroom and spacious living area. The location was just perfect,in a nice area with easy access to central Manhattan. I chose to walk everywhere and soak up the atmosphere but one could easily have a cab called by the friendly staff.
Overall this place exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to return. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting New York for pleasure or business.
You will love it.
