We had seen the building on another trip and wondered what that beautiful building was. When we realized that it was a hotel we just had to check it out. We had a terrace that looked right down on the ice skating rink at the park. The view of the park and the surrounding skyscrapers was amazing. Our room was large and comfortable, with modern upscale furnishings. You could open the huge window coverings to create a wide open look, or close them for privacy. When opened, you felt like you were suspended in the air among the skyscrapers, because the windows are so large. Breakfast was included in our room price and was served in the room. That was a nice touch as well. I have to include the staff as well, as everyone we encountered was too botch and wonderful to deal with. We have stayed at many of the top rated hotels in New York. Bryant Park is right there with the best of the best We'll be back.
