A cozy base for weary traveller from UK
A cozy, convenient and welcoming base in midtown. Excellent transport connections as a very short walk to both GCT and metro. Staff were friendly and efficient. Its an older style hotel but everything was in good working order. Good strong wifi. Perhaps in need of a little redecoration in places

stay away
outdated, not well maintained, dirty carpets, incredibly noisy air conditioning system, no minibar, no room service, no bar in the hotel. basically, this is a hostel.

Perfect location for sightseeing trip. Nice staff, helpful and approachable. Hotel in need of some TLC in some areas. It would be helpful if the heating was our room it was either on or off!

Disappointing. Noisy area
First disappointment since joining 5 years ago. Hotel needing some real upgrading and decorating. Plaster coming off the ceiling, air con taped up to hold it together and all but non existent 😳. Staff efficient but not over attentive. Tiny towels. Very very noisy. Renovations in surrounding area going on all night. Truck and car Horn blowing all night. Noisy until 2am-3am every night. Was more expensive than my previous stays in NYC. Not worth the extra money. Quite disappointed.

Good location, noisy road works
Drilling outside till midnight resumed at 04.00 disturbed sleep on 9th floor! Hotel a bit weary and electrics in bathroom needed patience when turning main light on. Location for my office was good as was WiFi and service in general
