Review: Conrad New York Statue of Liberty View Suite

Conrad New York Statue of Liberty View Suite

I actually didn't originally plan to stay at the Conrad New York but since it's not that often that I visit the "City that Never Sleeps", I thought I might as well stay here even for a night. I used my Hilton points to book a night and changed my previously booked Hilton hotel to another date instead. The Conrad New York is an all suite hotel and with free breakfast as a Diamond member, the 80K Hilton points I used was very reasonable, not to mention that hotels in this city are really expensive. Not only did I get the Conrad Bull during my stay, I also got an upgrade as a Diamond member to a corner suite with breathtaking views of the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty 😍

Check-in

I arrived at the hotel around 4pm and was helped by a friendly associate who did the check-in process efficiently. I was told that I got a corner suite and if she is not mistaken, it is one of only 3 suites with the view of the Statue of Liberty from the bed 😍 They really know how to make their elite members feel special. Thanks so much guys. Moments later, I was handed my room key and I was on my way to my room on the 8th floor.

The highest floor is the 15th floor, and then there is the Rooftop Bar on the 16th floor although it was still closed for the season.

The living room was very nice, with modern design and bright atmosphere.

There's a flat TV ...

... and some Audio and Video ports.

Right past the living room and the bathroom is the bedroom. And since it was a corner room, I had views of the Hudson River on one side and the Statue of Liberty on the other 👍

Inside the wardrobe, you'd find the bathrobes, umbrella, iron, ironing board

The Conrad New York slippers are one of the best slippers I've used 👍

The toiletries are from Shanghai Tang, just like on my stay at the Conrad Beijing.

The best part of this suite is of course the view of the Statue of Liberty from the bed 😍

From the other side, I had fantastic views of the Hudson River.

After enjoying our Staten Island Ferry Tour, we were back to the hotel and found this welcome amenity consisting of a fruit plate and 2 bottles of water plus the Conrad Bull 😍

There was also a card and the breakfast voucher.

Although I've stayed at different hotels and got rooms with fantastic views, I don't think there's a better room than this one where I could see the Statue of Liberty right from my bedroom.

Breakfast Menu

As a Diamond member I was entitled for a complimentary breakfast item costing up to 20USD per person. There was also a special menu with five items to choose from and from there, my sister had the Scrambled Eggs Bruschetta which she said was very good.

Buttermilk Pancakes

I on the other hand chose from the regular menu and had the Buttermilk Pancakes costing exactly 20USD so I didn't have to pay anything extra. The pancakes were perfect 😋 A hot and cold drink was also included and I had a cup of green tea.

CONCLUSION

I have stayed at different Conrad hotels in the past including the Conrad Manila, Conrad Hong Kong and Conrad Centennial Singapore and just like my stays on these hotels (where the quality of service from the staff are unparalleled), my stay at the Conrad New York was no exception. The rooms were beautiful and modern and the breakfast although not that extravagant was very good. But the thing that made my stay an unforgettable one was the fact that I got a room with the view of the Statue of Liberty. I actually said good night, good morning and bye to her a lot of times 😉 And I don't think I would have received such an upgrade if I had not been a Hilton Diamond member. As they say, it always pay to be loyal. To all the staff of Conrad New York especially to Ms. Amanda VerPlank, I can't thank you enough. Hope to be back soon 😍
