Just right
There was no 24 hour room service, but there was plenty of room service during the day and the food from the adjacent restaurant Nice Matin was excellent. Also there is a food market 24 hours on the corner of Amsterdam across the street with huge selection of everything you might want or need. Place to get your nails done down the block. In the room, love the blackout curtains. Room clean and with plenty of space. Great shower. Tub also. The location wonderful. Thanks very much.

6/10 Good

NYC Family Vacay
Service staff were very nice and accessible. Location was really good. And the room was mostly comfortable. Some issues we experienced: air didn’t properly work one night so we woke up warm. Hotel had routine water work done which was communicated through a letter placed on a desk. Water shut off early and I was in shower, lathered up with no running water. Bathrooms not adequately restocked with washcloths, soap and shampoo. I would stay here again but these are a lot issues for $400+ per night. Again, with exception to none front desk person that was a bit awkward the staff and location were wonderful.

Good find on the UWS of Manhattan.
Excellent hotel on the UWS of Manhattan. Friendly staff. Booking through a travel website we got an interior room, one window, but it was a nice size and we were only there to sleep! Great area, lots of restaurants on Amsterdam Street. Subway entrances close by. Natural History Museum 3 blocks away.
