Midtown comfort with river views near east side office buildings.
True, this hotel is somewhat off the beaten track over by the 59th Street Bridge, the East River and FDR Drive. But there’s a bus right outside the door that will deposit you at Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in minutes. It's proximity to The United Nations is also a bonus. The lobby has a sleek, contemporary look with its leather furniture, silver-leafed mica chandeliers and brushed-steel accents. The 196 rooms are decorated in browns and creams and furnished in ultramodern style with slipper chairs and large desks. Beds have quilted upholstered headboards and are dressed in damask linens and down comforters. Amenities include Internet access, CD players, video game consoles, phones with data ports and marble bathrooms. The blackout shades on the windows are a welcome extra. The structure was formerly an office building and so the rooms have a variety of shapes. Best values with the best views are the corner rooms, which are elongated and offer wraparound panoramas. In the library off the lobby, a complimentary cappuccino bar operates all day; guests are welcome to linger over the books and magazines provided. Prime, the chic, bi-level rooftop restaurant and bar, serves kosher fare with Asian and Italian influences against a panoramic view of the city.
