Having stayed in a Meridien property in Barcelona, my family and I were intrigued by the relatively low advertised price for this property, given especially the location (W. 56th) and decided to deviate from our normal hotel of choice (The London, at W. 54th) for a couple of days of XMas shopping. We won't go back. In general, we didn't find the staff to be particularly helpful, at all, amplified by our difficulty in getting the front desk to arrange for transportation to the airport. The property is in need of an "update" of more than just furnishings. The rooms are of an adequate size, but nothing speical. The location is great, and I suppose that our experience was abnormal, but given the years of great experiences at The London (formerly the Rhiga Royal) we were really disappointed.
