Redesigned in 2007 by Roman and Williams (the firm behind the eclectic interiors of Ace Hotel New York), the Royalton’s dark, glam main-level lounge is popular among midtown professionals. Guests will enjoy complimentary coffee and cappuccino from the hotel’s American brasserie, Forty Four, which is best known for its seasonal cocktails. Sip on a Sorrento Sunrise at the horseshoe-shaped bar or sink into a leather armchair opposite the bronze fireplace. The spacious rooms are decorated in a soothing slate-gray color palette and mahogany furniture. In-room perks include an iPad with free Wi-Fi, flatscreen HD TV, minibar and spa treatments by requests. Most bathrooms come with a circular five-foot-diameter Roman tub (note, there are no tubs on floors 11 through 14). After a soak, from October through April, you can warm up by a roaring fire—most rooms are outfitted with a wood-burning fireplace. Rooms: 168.

This location was perfect for a first timer in New York (me). You'll be walking distance from everything touristy! The hotel itself is beautiful with dark colors and masculine decor. However, my family and I couldn't help but notice the sexual innuendo in every room (provocative postcards and sex kits in the bathrooms). We had to wonder if this is more of a couples hotel? Either way, I'd recommend it : ) 

We stayed here for it's close proximity to Broadway theaters and it proved to be a great location in getting everywhere. 

Bryant Park sits right out the back door of hotel, a perfect place to grab a morning coffee and a quick bite from

one of the many  lovely cafes and food  kiosks before heading out for sightseeing.

As mentioned Times Square and all the Broadway theatres await right down the block at the corner.

The rooms are beautiful, clean design and spacious.  The hotel bath and amenities are great!

The lobby lounge is still popular happy hour meet up at 5-5:30pm. But the mornings in Lobby are quiet and a comfortable place to sit and read the NYtimes  which are amply available. The hotel service is courteous and helpful with out being overly so. Some might pen this as slightly aloof, but knowing the Royalton hotel's cool mystique one might expect they  reserved approach. 

I will emphasize the rooms are fantastic mostly quiet and great respite form the busy energy of times square and very restorative from a  busy day of sight seeing. Also a plus the hotel sits across from the famous Algonquin Hotel lobby bar. A must for after theatre drinks!
