My two girlfriends and I spent a fabulous four nights in New York using apartment Rockefeller 25 as our home base. We kept saying we were so glad to have found this gem of an apartment. The most outstanding feature is the placement of the wall of windows in the bedroom and living room with the view of the NY skyline with the Empire State Building in the middle. The photos in the HomeAway web page don't do it justice.
From the beginning of the rental procedure, we were kept informed by Nate, who always answered our emails right away. Then Maria was texting and waiting to let us in to the apartment after our plane landed. It was a very smooth arrangement.
The apartment is located right by Rockefeller Center with restaurants, a pharmacy, and 5th and 6th Avenue a half block away. We walked everywhere, to Grand Central Station, a Broadway show, Top of the Rock, shopping, and restaurants. We even watched the Today show from the 2nd floor lounge. There's also a subway stop a half block away, but we also used UberX, which had their drivers there in minutes.
The apartment itself is roomy and very modern and clean. We especially loved the large bathroom with three women and make-up to put on. The large king sized bed and the sofa bed let us all have a comfortable place to sleep.
You can't go wrong with this apartment! It's so much better than hotel. We would rent it again without hesitation.
