    Very Good8.0
    Functional and clean, feels slightly dated.
    Great for what I wanted, but not a hotel is true someone to impress them.

    First time in New York
    It was mine and my brothers first time in New York. So we cannot compare to any other hotels but the Watson was a bit dated. It was clean but the rooms could have done with a dust everyday. The Wifi was awful and had to sit in the lobby to get the best signal, but this was not good compared to UK standards. The hotel is located in a great spot to see most of the main attractions though.

    Bad conditions but great location
    The location was great. The room are outdated. Noise coming from the piping system is a major nuisance.

    Good location but really dated
    This hotel is really dated and in need of a major renovation urgently.

    The Watson Hotel
    At least the beds and towels are clean
    The location of the hotel was good for my business trip but the hotel was in desperate need of an update. The room had a funny smell and the facility are generally quite old and dated. The housekeeping lady was very friendly and polite - cant say the same thing about the receptionist team.
