This was almost as good as it gets.
If you ever have a chance to stay here, DO IT! It's a category 7 Hyatt Property which is very expensive. Everything about my stay here was grand, from the city view indoor pool on the 26th floor to the gym to the perfect location. It was a once in a lifetime hotel stay from a very frugal traveler like myself. The only thing that was wrong was the way I wasn't informed of all the amenities at the front desk by my check in girl. It was very disappointing to have to call down and ask stupid questions that should've been addressed at the check in. I would stay here again in a heartbeat if I can ever afford it. It's 30,000 Hyatt points or $900-1300 a room a night. I was able to stay 2 nights for FREE with my 2 free night award stays because I have the Hyatt Chase Visa credit card. It also comes with one free night stay a year at a category 4 or lower.
I live in NYC for half the year. There is no other city in the world like it. The different cultures and nationalities speaking hundreds of different languages all living on a 14 square mile island. Anything you can think of you can find it here, from different foods to shopping to experiences.
