My sister and I stayed in the Chatwal for just one night, but it was enough to realise that we wanted servants full time. When we checked in, we'd mentioned that we were going to see a Broadway show (the Chatwal is seconds away from Times Square). The next thing we knew, a polite Danish woman in black and beige livery was knocking on door, introducing herself as our butler, and asking if she could press our dresses before we went out. She also made our dinner reservations, and showed us how to use the extremely complicated toilet (with its own remote control). An experience I will never forget.
