Definitely fans! Small, well appointed rooms in the center of everything! And they have a new main floor CL with an M Club feel. Very busy but well managed. Our tip - Lexington is a 1 way. street. When you head out of the subway, remember that the traffic is moving from higher to lower numbered streets. Walk with traffic on Lex exiting from 51st and 59th towards The Lexington Autograph and opposing traffic if leaving from Grand Central/42nd. C
It's a nice hotel, psudad. The service is great and the three different rooms that I've had have all been first class. The overall hotel is in much better shape than the outdated Carlton and typically better priced.
