Excellent location. Only problem this time : hotel had turned off the AC and switched to heat (mid-October) but temps were still 70 degrees outside so room was VERY hot and stuffy - but very friendly hotell staff provided a fan - that helped a bit -

The front desk check in person was delightful and recognized me as I have stayed at The Watson for many years. It is most convenient to Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Opera. Room was clean and crisp.
