Good 6.0
Great hotel but misleading on breakfast
Great stay. We paid for breakfast including. The hotel charged us for breakfast
BARNARD, gb4 night family trip
Fair 4.0
It was so-so. Decent size room, amazing view of the Empire State Building. However, an extra $25 per night ontop of your room rate - which you can use on room service, but the room service menu is SO expensive that you end up spending over the $25 (which I guess is the aim). Our room wasn't serviced for 2 days straight so no cleaning, no beds made and no fresh towels. We complained but no apology or resolution. When we checked out, we complained again and got the $25 per night wiped off the bill which was great but overall the stay was average. Not bad, not great.

Exceptional 10.0
10th floor view from bedroom. Noisy though!!
The best choice for hotel and location. Could not have chosen better. A clean, bright hotel within walking distance to most places. Delicatessen located just behind hotel. Grocery store on the corner for bottled water. Pret A Manger opposite. Would definitely stay again. Highly recommend.
Sara, gbFamily trip
Very good 8.0
Welcomed with a smile (not!)
The hotel was very clean and tidy just a shame about some of the staff especially the breakfast team, not very friendly when explaining the complicated system for breakfast. Make the breakfast rule easier i.e buffet or sit down. Don’t treat everyone like idiots when choosing the 3 items for the grad and go! Have to say we had a few servers early evening who were very friendly and polite when servicing.
