The Lyric hotel exceeded all of our expectations. Upon checking in, we were upgraded which was a lovely surprise as we were staying over Christmas. The hotel, although in lower Manhattan, is close to many attractions and is a short walk away from the 9/11 Memorial Museum, the Museum of Native America, as well as the Occulus, World Trade Centre and One World Observatory. There is even a grocery store on the lower floor that sells a great range of vegan products and is ooen 7am - midnight daily.
Although we didn't interact with the staff very often, when we did they were friendly, helpful and efficient. The cleaning staff were also outstanding. We left notes to ask for particular flavoured tea etc. and they kept our apartment spotlessly clean and tidy. The apartment was fully equipped with everything we needed for a 9 night stay. I would highly recommend this beautiful hotel to anyone looking for a spacious, well equipped apartment for their trip to New York. Many thanks to all the staff who made our stay so enioyable =) ☆☆☆☆☆
