My cor­ner room on 17th floor was about 320 square feet, and had ev­ery­thing you’d ex­pect from a 4-star ho­tel – a com­fort­able dou­ble bed, a desk, an arm­chair, a sofa and a TV. What made it stand out, how­ever, was the mar­velous panorama of the Hud­son River on one side, and of New York’s sky­scrapers on the other. It’s worth choos­ing a cor­ner room be­cause they fea­ture two glass walls, giv­ing onto the spec­tac­u­lar views both day and night. I par­tic­u­larly en­joyed the panorama at night, when the lights of the city, in­clud­ing nearby Broad­way, are ablaze. I also ad­mired the im­pres­sive views from the room’s small, wood-lined ter­race.

The bath­room was lined with light stone and had both bath and shower. There were also toi­letries and a hair dryer. Wooden floors, fancy painted fur­ni­ture and pho­tos of or­chids and tulips added to the over­all at­mos­phere.
