Grand Hyatt New York Hotel Review: This hotel next to Grand Central Station scores high in efficiency but is low on the boutique charm factor. The glitzy glass-and-marble lobby has Donald Trump's name all over it (he was one of the original investors). For business dinners, New York Central serves classic European cuisine with a contemporary twist, and for sealing deals over drinks, there is The Lounge at New York Central. The hotel also offers an upscale food mini-mart in the lobby. A big plus for sports fans is that visiting baseball, hockey, basketball and football teams often stay here, which makes for good autograph hunting and gawking at multimillion-dollar-earning ballplayers. The 1,311 rooms are airy and comfortable, done in a modern, muted style. Views include close-ups of the Chrysler Building. Corporate travelers are especially catered to. The array of event centers, accomodating anywhere from ten to more than two thousand guests, are equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment, high-speed Internet and guest catering services; the location in the heart of Midtown also makes this Hyatt ideal for local corporate events. For a nominal charge the Hyatt Business Plan includes local, credit card and 800-number calls, express continental breakfast, morning newspaper and 24-hour access to business facilities.
