We stayed at the Refinery during the Christmas holiday. The location in Midtown is excellent, close to Bryant Park and within walking distance to Rockefeller Plaza, Central Park, Empire State and Times Square. The rooftop restaurant has a good vibe and offers a great view of Empire State. We had a king room which was spacious (although with a slightly small bathroom), clean and quiet. Nice lobby bar/lounge with jazz music several nights. Had some challenges getting a response from the hotel ahead of our stay, and they seemed a bit short staffed at times, otherwise I would have given an even higher rating.
