                        Location

                        The continental breakfast was poor.They were not comprehensive about my mistake about the reservation and they charged one night more that actually stayed.

                        Excellent location overlooking Central Park, relatively close to excellent restaurants, museums, the famous Times Square and the outstanding Theater District.

                        I really enjoyed my stay at the Helmsley Park Lane Hotel.

                        The doormen and valets were delightful and helpful. Rooms were generously sized with turndown service. Enjoyed the location,city view and access to the park, although subways make it easy to get anywhere.

                        Big and bright rooms.Very quiet. The staff are very helpful. Turn down service and Choc's were a nice touch. Location is excellent for walking,sight seeing and shopping.We requested a fridge for the room, and it was in place on check in.

                        The AC did not always cool the room.

                        Good starting point for exploring the city

                        The checkout system was down when I checked out. My bill was supposed to be emailed to me ... but it was never sent. I left my email address - gdan@null.net

                        Across the street from Central Park

                        No coffee maker in the room. The main hallway carpet was musty smelling. No swimming pool.

                        The view from the rooms at the front of the hotel are spectacular. I was in a "suite" which turned out to be simply a larger room, which was fine. The bed was very comfortable. Staff were very helpful although phoning room service could be a challenge in terms of getting through. Nice touch to have a refrigerator in the room.

                        The smell from the horses**t from the horse-drawn carriages directly outside was notable!

                        The view is superb. So, location. Plus I liked the period design. And the spaciousness.

                        Having drinks in Harry's is always "quite enjoyably" and the staff so pleasant Also the receptionist at check in was friendly, our room was not available and she was kind enough to put us in an upgrade for the one night stay,(unheard of) any where else. Again for only staying one night we were treated "Royally".
