I like luxury and my husband does not do lifts (elevators), so finding a place to stay for a week in New York with plenty of room to relax in was a bit of a challenge. This apartment was perfect for us. It was very spacious and luxurious and beautifully decorated and I loved the marble bathrooms. The photos do really prepare you for the sense of space and calm you get when you enter. There was no noise at all. It was a real pleasure to meet Livingston and have a chat, it really gave a personal touch to our stay, and he directed us to a great Italian restaurant. In fact, we could not go wrong with the food in this part of New York, everything we tried was delicious, and some of it great value for money too.
