One of New York's newest hotels, The Strand is a well conceived property with a fresh look and a youthful personality, of which easyvoyage.co.uk got a sneak preview before its opening in early December 2009. It has well appointed rooms with a subtle use of colour, some nice touches unique to the hotel (motion-censored air con) and perhaps best of all a rooftop bar to rival those of any of the city's hotels. It is true to say that the hotel's location is not in the most attractive part of the city, but it is still not far from some of New York's biggest attractions and is great for transport links. In addition, it does something that very few hotels in the city do nowadays and that's to offer a complimentary breakfast. We recommend this hotel for leisure travellers, in particular couples and groups of friends (families would also enjoy the hotel, however there is not a huge amount of space for larger families).
