It began with a bulldog...strange as it may seem, this is what caught our eye the first time we took notice of this absolute gem of a property set in the heart of midtown Manhattan. The bulldog draws you in, makes you smile, and the rest is history. Cut to the arrival, you're met on the doorstep by beautifully dressed attendants and treated like royalty from the point of check-in. The accommodations (all suites) carry a bit of a mod decor with touches like a massive two-headed shower, way-too-comfy bed, and those views of New York spanning Times Square all the way to Central Park and beyond that you can't quite believe are real (but they are, and yours, temporarily). They seem to have thought of everything...the desks are actually big enough to work on with room to spare, there is a separate fridge from the mini bar, the aubergine-colored freeform-shaped sofa in your living room is actually comfortable and large enough to lounge on, and there is SPACE (yes, ample space, in a NY hotel room, we promise). The service is spot-on, the staff seems to know what you want even before you do, and the dining experiences at both of Gordon Ramsay's on site restaurants, Maze and London, are as flawless as you might imagine. A real find, and once you find it, you'll find it hard to stay anywhere else.
