Poor experience, high price tag
I live in NYC and stayed here for one night because I was moving. Paid $400/night and was excited for a little pool time but ended up having a terrible experience. PROS- helpful bellman/some front desk staff. Great views from the balcony, good location if you want to be in Wburg, comfy bed, good food/service at the restaurant Leuca. CONS- the pool policy for guests is insulting and inconsistent communication. Even though there was hardly anyone at the pool on a Tuesday afternoon and NO line at all, reservations are required (found that out after booking) and when I called to confirm was told we can only have one 3 hour time slot before 11am checkout. We had a more pleasant experience with a nice young woman checking in to the pool area but then a guy chased us down to change our wristbands because they were for the next time slot. Going for a last dip, my partner was told twice leading up to our slot ending that we needed to leave. I’m sure this is because they sell day passes to non-quests for $$$. I would have spent a lot of time and money on food/drinks if their policies weren’t so unfriendly to hotel guests Taking a work call was also a hassle: I was told I could use the business center since it was after checkout which turned out to be closed; the threatened a $250 fee if we checked out later than 11:30 and obvi the pool was not possible. The nice staff at the restaurant Leuca let me use a side room

Was looking forward to this stay to celebrate a special occasion. Underwhelming check in experience with no friendly, let alone professional welcome. It was transactional. Room was lovely (Gotham Corner Suite), with exceptional views and comfort. A reservation was made for the pool yet when we arrived there was no guest seating available so we left. Ordered room service breakfast at 8am and it had still not arrived by 10am, after 3 phone calls it arrived at 10:40am. The hotel did extend our check out to allow us to enjoy our breakfast. The dining experience at Leuca, and drinks at Westlight, was lovely. Overall the hotel just felt sloppy. And when you are paying over $1000 for one night I’d expect things to be a little more buttoned up.
