Best Rooms: Deluxe rooms facing south on the higher floors will have a view of Midtown, while Deluxe rooms facing north will have a view of Uptown. The Midtown view is a bit more appealing. There's a building between the hotel and Central Park, so the Central Park views may not be ideal. The hotel always fills the higher floors first, so you'll have a good chance of getting a room with a view if you book early.
