Fodor's Expert Review Bryant Park Hotel

40 W. 40th St., New York, New York, 10018, USA

A city landmark towering over the New York Public Library and Bryant Park in a Midtown sweet spot, this sleek hotel has rooms featuring padded leather headboards with decorative bolster pillows and marble bathrooms with rainfall shower heads and Molton Brown products. Rooms are bigger than average, though those on the lower floors tend to be a bit dark and don't have great views. Both the Koi restaurant and Célon Cocktail Bar & Lounge are popular with the after-work crowd, though later in the evening both the restaurants and the neighborhood tend to get quiet. Still, during the day, the location can't be beat, with 5th Avenue and Times Square quick walks from the front door.

PROS
