Good Evening Glenn, Thank you so much for the great comments and 5 Star rating from your recent visit with us. We were so happy to read your feedback and we are glad you are sharing it with our future guests and we are doing the same with our hotel team. We were excited to see you enjoyed your accommodations and hotel amenities and that we were so close to Mt. Sinai and Central Park which is where you needed to be. We know you reserved our standard room which was smaller than you expected and we hope on your next visit, you will try our spacious suites with plenty of room and great views of the city and Central Park. Reagrding your comments on updating, we are finishing replacement of all new beds and room carpet by end of March in addition to new hallway carpeting on all floors and new lamps and sofa beds as well. It was alos great to hear you enjoyed breakfast at Sarabeth's which is an icon here on the UES. We look forward to seeing you again next time you are in our Upper East Side neighborhood. Thank you and all the best. The Hotel Wales Team
