I am at the Trump now. Booked with FHR and got 3rd night free with the usual bennies and an upgrade to an Executive Suite/apartment. It's not on a residential floor, but it has a full kitchen. I think this is my first mid-town hotel stay that has a swimming pool. Nice steam and sauna too. I like most everything about this hotel except the design in the room is a bit dated, especially in the small bathroom. Everything is shiny and new looking though. No stains or scratches anywhere. And of course I love the location. We usually stay at the St Regis on family visits, but gave this a try. It is perfectly fine.

If anyone stayed at the Ritz Carlton by Four Seasons in Chicago before the recent renovation I would say that is a good comp. Great hotel and great service, but the RC really needed that renovation. This hotel could use the same makeover.

I have to add now that the pool closed yesterday for renovation. And the locker rooms are closing today. No advanced warning at all. That plus the small bathroom are the only two negatives so far.

Bumping this thread to note I'll be staying at the Greenwich Hotel in about two weeks, based on the recommendations in this thread, and thereby dumping my usual favorite--the Crosby Street Hotel.

I've taken up a suite as the rooms didn't seem all that great from my previous visit. I'll report back on whether I like it.

I unfortunately can't do the Baccarat. I'm in general finding Manhattan less and less appealing. Previously the only areas that made the city somewhat enjoyable for me were Soho, Nolita, LES, East Village and Tribeca (and now soho is pretty whatever to me), but there's just nothing for me in the UES, UWS, or in Midtown.

And this makes me conflicted because I'm curious to try the Aman whenever it finally opens.

Old thread, new bump.

Our favorite hotel in the city - we have like 40 nights there in three years for theater weekends - the Bryant Park Hotel is closing/has closed. We are devastated - it isn’t “luxury” but in NYC that’s hard to find and imo seldom worth the expense.

My question​​​​​: does anyone know a upscale / luxury hotel around Bryant Park that has hardwood floors / minimalist-style rooms and possible separate shower and tub? That’s what we loved about the Bryant Park (other than the staff). The separate shower and tub, the clean rooms and the Morton Brown products. I am so sad.
