Our Overall Rating: 5/5
This was such a fun hotel to stay in while in NYC – not only because you can easily take the tram or ferry to get there, which just adds to the experience, but because the decor is exciting and the views are stunning! They have a Loft Suite that is inspired by the movie Big, but even if you don’t want to get the theme room, there is plenty to see. We absolutely recommend going up to the rooftop bar for brunch and for a nightcap – the decor up there is gorgeous during both times of day so don’t miss it! Besides that, Roosevelt Island is a gorgeous place to visit, especially if you can get there in the spring when the trees are blooming.
Cleanliness Rating: 5/5
Favorite Room: We loved staying in the Premium Junior Suite for the views – but since you can get stunning views on the rooftop as well don’t feel like you have to get the upgrade.
