The lobby, with onyx floors, limestone walls, and brass sconces, "opens before you like a scene from a great old movie." "Waking up with a view of Central Park is the reason to choose this hotel." Beds have Frette linens and a choice of seven pillows; "the bathroom was lavish with marble, chrome, and glass but remarkably inviting." Staff are tuned in: "When we returned one night after seeing the Broadway show Jersey Boys, the sound track was playing on our room's CD player." BLT Market's menu is green market driven, and might include morel and English pea risotto.
