Yes, you can request a high-floor room and chose between Times Square view or Central Park view!
The hotel has rooms on floors 36 to 65, so i was quite lucky with floor 60

Awesome! Once I get a better paying job, I'll do it..you can even ask for a room on a higher floor, which is a must for me!

Pretty cool picture, besides a great aerial, you can easily distinguish many of the larger buildings being constructed in Manhattan due to the orange netting.

Really cool shot. Why are there so many low-rises from Hudson Yards up to the Pyramid?

Hell's Kitchen. You'll probably never see any skyscraper built in that vicinity in our lifetime.

Why, is there something with the soil or the bedrock that prevents tall construction?

That entire neighborhood is landmarked. And for good reason, as it's basically the only existing chunk of midtown left with pre-war low-rises.
