We adore the Andaz Fifth Avenue for its bounty of foodie freebies, including the choice of Fat Witch Baby Brownies or C.O. Bigelow Peppermints at check-out. There are other less delicious gift options as well: C.O Bigelow Lemon Lip Cream and a tube of anti-bacterial hand gel. Other free treats include minibar snacks and non-alcoholic drinks, wine in the lobby from 6 to 9 p.m. each evening, and made-to-order barista coffee in the lobby. 960 1280
