Fodor's Review

With iMacs in the lobby, free Wi-Fi throughout, bikes for the borrowing at the front door, and generously sized, minimalist cream-and-white guest rooms, what was once the slightly faded Ambassador East is now hip and sleek; the location's as stellar as always. And the legendary Pump Room restaurant is still there, but the design is all new. There's also a new fitness center on the 11th floor and a screening room off the Library Bar, with plenty of plush couches. A free

breakfast for kids (accompanied by cartoons) fill the space on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
