"My son & I caught a last second flight deal to NYC last weekend & were able to secure Annie's place.
I based our choice of stay due to the amazing location, great reviews & the photos! None disappointed!
The photos are very accurate to the space & amenities. The apartment was spacious, warm, welcoming & extremely clean. The double bed was super comfy & the linens were just as enjoyable.
I loved the oversized & updated, standup, tiled shower. We didn't need to do a lot of cooking, but the split kitchen area had amazing, stainless steel appliances. The two below counter fridges provided perfect, ample room for our drinks and snacks. A plethora of glassware, plates, bowls & flatware were at our disposal, basically anything we needed.
The room felt spacious with it's high ceilings & alcoved area for the bed. Although we didn't utilize it much because it was February, the patio was great & truly expanded the inside feel of the space via the view through the windows. I look forward to morning coffee out there the next time.
My son & I enjoyed the lounging chair & ottoman, especially after a long day of site seeing. The couch was also a great size for us & quite comfortable.
The location is second to none. 2+ blocks off Central Park, steps to the 1,2 or 3 line, which gets you Times Square in one stop if you catch the express. There is a Trader Joe's just on the other side of Broadway (less than a block) & because it's Upper West Side Manhattan, coffee shops, pizza, restaurants & bars galore!
One added bonus is that the apartment is directly upstairs from the Triad Theatre. A quaint theatre that is the usual home for Forbidden Broadway, along with smaller plays and musical acts. Currently it is housing Spamilton, which we had the pleasure of attending. We also caught a late night comedy show that happened to be starting upon our arrival.
The apartment was so calm & peaceful. You would never know there was a live, active theatre downstairs.
Lastly, Annie was lovely. She got back to us initially well within 24 hours. Communication was clear & reasonably prompt. We didn't have any issues, but were well informed of personal contacts in the immediate area should we need anything.
I am not sure when the next we will make back to the city, but when we do hopefully this amazing, walk up, brownstone will be available. It truly put the perfect button on our jaunt the Big Apple!
