Fabulous 8.6 From 461 reviews

Very good 8.0
Nice hotel, conveniently located close to Empire State. Customer service was excellent. Room had a lovely big bed, although was very small with next to no space for hanging clothes for two people. Nowhere to hang coats and jackets, and general lack of storage for a 5 night stay for two.

Great area, good value
Stayed for a week. Very friendly staff always courteous and assisting. Inviting bar area which was lively most nights. Great location close but not 'too close' to Mid Town and a walkable distance to Chelsea and Tribeca. The subway is at the end of the street which was also handy. Suits a couple or singleton. Good value over all. I'd stay again!

Hi all the place is very nice and the decor is lovely great location For midtown the one thing that's wrong with the hotel is the noise from the extractor fans or the Aircon units,was in room 501 then the next day ask them to change rooms then room 801 was the same maybe worse As a professional builder I think they need to fit triple glaze glass maybe the rooms that face the street maybe less noisier but then you have the traffic ?

Long weekend - perfect location
Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. The positives outweigh the negatives. Positives: Staff were very friendly and the location is superb - 1 block from the Empire State and Flat Iron, 10 min walk from Time Square, 30 second walk to 33rd street station for the 6 or 3 block walk to 32nd street station, 10 mins from Penn Station - ideal for shuttles too and from La Guardia and JFK. Having wifi in the room included is great and not very common. Shower was great, hot and powerful...what more could you want! Negatives: We had the King Standard and for about $228/night the room was very small. The bed was very comfortable and nice and big but it left little room for manoeuvring around and no room of you have 2 suitcases open on the floor. We also had very little natural light as our room looked out onto a heating/air vent surrounded by brick on all 4 sides. The lighting in the room is poor unless you have all side lamps on too due to the lack of light from the window. Request when you want your room cleaned and turned over as they do this up to 5pm and we arrived back at 3pm, having left at 9am and the room still hadn't been cleaned. Reception is happy for a time to be set and were very accomdating. Breakfast is nice but very expensive - $15 for yogurt, granola and some berries. The is no shortage of places to eat a few blocks west.

Convenient hotel for business travel
A well situated hotel for work. Business traveller friendly but has real character and a friendly feel. Be sure to request a room at the back of the hotel - it was noisy on the front as 32nd is a busy road.
