From the location to the views to the floorplan and amenities, this is THE place to stay when visiting NYC. Peter is an owner who cares for his apartment and also takes excellent care of those who are lucky enough to stay there. Check in was very easy, and the owner provided tons of information on local restaurants, groceries, etc. Floor to ceiling windows in both the bedroom and living room offer an amazing view of Times Square, as does the view from the building's rooftop observatory. The apartment is larger than we expected, the open floor plan makes it feel very spacious. The full kitchen has top of the line appliances and is stocked with all dishes, cookware and glassware you could possibly need. There was plenty of seating with the sofa and two chairs and the sofa bed was very comfortable. Traveling with two teenage girls made bathroom amenities a priority and we were well pleased. Large contemporary sink but still plenty of counter space, a shower-head I'd like to have here at home and a deep soaking tub. The wifi was fast, both TVs were great, it was nice to have one in the bedroom too. The bedroom was small but plenty of room for all our things, which of course accumulated as the week went on, and plenty of closet and drawer space. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was also a plus. We were somewhat concerned about potential noise but found the apartment to be very well insulated and there were black out drapes to block light when we went to bed. The lounge on the 4th floor was nice with a pool table and virtual golf but we didn't spend any time there, too much to do in the city. Peter went out of his way to make it possible for us to stay in the apartment and we are so grateful. It was everything we expected and so much more. We would definitely stay here again and hope to be able to so soon!
