Crowne Plaza HY36 Midtown Manhattan (Master Thread)

Unless my searches have somehow failed to find it, it doesn't appear there is a thread about this newish property. Has anyone stayed and can they share their experiences?
Thanks!

Seems like I may be the first to stay. In all, I found the hotel pretty nice, and a good addition to the IHG portfolio in NYC. It struck me as closer to a Kimpton than a standard CP, but was very modern, with decent sized rooms (for New York). I had to wait a while to check-in as they only had one person on staff, but otherwise had no complaints. Well, that and the fact that the wardrobe in lieu of closet was comically small and barely had room for my suit and a shirt. The bathroom was quite large, on the other hand.
As an IHG Platinum on an award stay, I was upgraded to a high floor with a decent view. The gym in the basement was great, and had Peloton bikes.
The hotel restaurant is a bit overpriced, but has a nice garden in the back.
Would definitely consider again. Pics below

Thank your for the review.
Added to the master thread and also created a wiki with additional information.

Any benefits extended to Platinum members? CP Times Square gave out breakfast vouchers for USD10.

As of June, just the benefits indicated above:i.e., upgrade and standard IHG points amenity. The CP Times Square also has a $30 a night plus tax "destination fee." This property does not.

As I said in the post immediately preceding, there are not currently any such fees.

Awards stay

Just stayed here for 4 nights on an awards stay as a spire member.
Not offered a choice of amenity, but points were added to my account before I even checked in! According to the app I was upgraded from a leisure to a superior room on the 22nd floor. No robes or anything in the room as shown in the above photo. No other perks or real recognition of status, they grudgingly gave me a 1pm checkout on the last day.
Oversll it was fine, but with so many other options in NYC I won’t be back. I much prefer Indigo LES or Stay bridge TS if I want to be in mid town.

Can anyone advise the difference between a King Suite and a King Executive Suite? The Executive Suite appears to be a higher category, but at the same price - no description or photos of either on the website!

There is now a $30/day "Destination Fee" which covers, "...complimentary water, champagne toast, and snack upon check in, complimentary high speed wifi and local & long distance phone calls, and a 24 hour complimentary CitiBike Pass." Not sure if the bike pass is per day or per stay, hopefully per day because I use those. Not thrilled since I was aiming for a bargain with my $80 Priceline bid, but I don't have status at IHG so I was expecting to pay $10-15 per day for Internet anyway.
