"Great for Families"
I was looking for a hotel large enough for me, my husband, and our four-year-old son when I stumbled on reviews of the Milburn. We selected a king suite, which had a large living room with full-sized pullout couch, tiny kitchenette (sink, microwave, refrigerator), table with three chairs, desk, and large reading chair. The bedroom was also very spacious, with a king-sized bed, two chairs, large dresser, walk-in closet, and a tiny bathroom with a bathtub. It was extremely large for a New York hotel. I could hear people in the halls, but I think the walls were thick, because I never heard another sound.
The wireless, despite many negative reviews, worked consistently the whole time we were.
The free continental breakfast had good quality foods, although the options were a little skimpy -- cold cereal, yogurt, fruit, pastries, and good New York bagels. The last day we were there, a Friday, there was a waffle station set up, which made it much more exciting.
We appreciated the hotel library, with a nice selection of children's books.
My only complaint was the window coverings, which can be important for those of us putting kids to bed before dark. There were beautiful thick, blackout-lined drapes -- which were installed as decorative wall hangings next to the windows. The windows themselves were covered with wooden blinds, which dimmed the room, but absolutely did not make it look like night.
