    Great getaway

    My husband and i enjoyed our stay. The staff are really friendly and the hotel is very nice. The room we had was small but we didn't mind it. We had a nice view of the city. We also enjoyed the red room drinks and music. Great stay

  • 8.0.Very good

    Covid Shortage

    I guess due to Covid the staff was skeletal at best... Rarely were we greeted in the door or walking by the check in desk or concierge. The housekeeping staff was excellent! The room we were in had a sofa with several wet areas. We would stay again,since the property was very pleasantly decorated.

    Great stay!

    We had a great stay at this hotel. Central location and close to Union Square. Bathrooms were very clean and recently updated. Beds were comfortable. Loved Fredricks for coffee and breakfast in the hotel. We had a 2 queen bed suite with a pull out couch, so plenty of room for a family of 4. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

    Friendly and hospitable staff. We felt safe and clean there during Covid protocol. We miss the Velvet room however. Add a little more purple back . The new remodel has too much tan.

    The stay was perfect. Quiet room comfortable bed. It would be nice to see the hotel getting more eco-friendly by not having individual shampoos etc. in the bathrooms. Will definitely stay again.
