People tend to check in during these times:
On the 8th floor, it's cheaper than "The View" and closer to the Times Square action.
Take a ride all the way to the top and then back down...
Been walking all day? Take the elevators to the 8th. Use the cleanest public bathrooms in the city and relax awhile before dinner or your show.
Need a clean bathroom in NYC this is the place to go. Much cleaner than the Porta Johns during a marathon.
The Atrium is where the Front Desk is located. One would assume that this floor would be busy, busy, busy.However it is a pleasant surprise to view the awesome Fountains and Fresh Floral arrangements.
