Poor 2.0
Utter disgrace
We didn’t even get to stay in the Moderne because when we arrived at midnight having had an extremely long flight and journey to get to the hotel, we were informed that we were unable to stay in our room that we’d alrwady bought and paid for in advance. They were not clear on the reason. To make it worse, they knew the time of our arrival and when to expect us as I’d emailed them the day before, yet they did not provide us prior warning or tell us in advance to go to this other hotel. We were expected to then travel to a different hotel as they couldn’t accommodate us! They then proceeded to have the utter cheek to try and make it only one night in this other hotel then for us to move back to the moderne the following nights. At this point we put our foot down; how dare they ruin our trip in such a way? We ended up staying at the ameritania hotel for our entire stay. They did give us breakfast as a minor compensation but we were utterly disappointed with the moderne service and what they did to us with no advanced warning what so ever. We feel the compensation did not match up to the inconvenience they caused us.

Wonderful Hotel, Amazing Staff, great location!
I travelled with my older mother and we asked for a twin room or an extra roll out bed, which the hotel didn't have. It didn't matter though as the bed was HUGE! Also they kindly upgraded us to a room with a sofa bed so we could have 2 beds. We didn't end up using it as there wasn't any bedding, but the bed was again so big, we didn't need it. This 2nd upgraded room, had windows which the first smaller room didn't have. The smaller room felt dark as the window faced a dark brickwall and on a first trip to NY having a window was important. This hotel is in a good location to times square but far enough not to be disturbed. Close to walk to central park, nice and great variety of food places in the surrounding streets. A huge whole foods not far away. This area felt like NYer's live here. It has character, homeliness and subway stations all around. The hotel staff were friendly, interesting, fun, honest and helpful. We loved them but never got to say THANK YOU! The endless 24 hr coffee/tea machine in the nice vistors lounge was brilliant. It had green tea, camomile tea, many differerent coffee types and ice water. The fruit and breakfast buns was good too. The room was quiet, the bed comfortable, the bathroom was lovely with good shower, toiletries and good towels. Wifi was good in both of the rooms. The lift was great too! I would definitely stay here again but with a room with a window looking on to the street! Highly recommended!!!

Fair 4.0
great location but very uncomfortable
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel is in a great location. Unfortunately the hotel felt very dark and closed in. Room was crowded with unnecessary furniture which left no room for our cases, and we constantly ended up kicking the legs of the bed trying to walk past. There was a safe at the bottom of the wardrobe but not enough space to be able to bend down to use it. Shower head was hanging out the wall in the bathroom and the towels need replacing. Room had no natural light due to our view being a brick wall but this is probably to be expected in New York, however the poor lighting in the room didn't help. Bed was the uncomfiest we've ever slept on. Hotel seemed to have no sound proofing - could hear tvs in other rooms, people talking and lots of outside noise. Nice guest lounge with free tea and coffee but the 'free breakfast' was disappointing and more of a snack. Overall the hotel was fine and is probably great value for money in this area but we personally wouldn't stay again.
