Having never been to NYC, I spent weeks looking at hotel reviews and ratings before deciding on the Loews Regency. We had one shot at making this trip a great experience, and I wanted to be sure we did it right.
Loews did not disappoint. It is in a great area, only two blocks from Central Park, in a quieter part of the city than most of the "touristy" hotels, and within easy walking distance of markets, cafes, Starbucks and Chipotle.
The staff was courteous from the start, and the hotel was beautiful. The rooms were a good size compared to many other hotels I was looking at, and our room was immaculate. The bathroom wasn't huge, but the lighting in there was amazing, and there was a vanity mirror and space just outside of it that came in very handy for doing hair and makeup!
The beds were very comfortable with quality linens and great comforters. No funky smells, no loud noises, and they put us up on the 15th floor so we would have a view for our stay.
There is a Fiat service available from 1-8pm for free, and a house car as well.....so if you don't want to cab or walk, and it fits within your timeframe, it could be fun. We never used either, because we enjoyed walking and figured out the subway pretty quick. But it's great that they have it available.
The Bar and Grille is nice but extremely pricey. We avoided the hotel restaurant entirely and had fun finding small local places to eat for our entire stay.
