  • The location is perfect and uptown/Downtown trains are available at Grand Central Station subway. The hotel is very nice and the rates are very competitive. Staff is helpful and the manager is the most accommodating and generous person you could hope for. Rooms are spacious for ny, the New York Helmsley is a great choice.

    Slow internet, no coffee maker was a big disappointment for us.
