In a good location for sites without being in the heart of the noisy part of town. Good sized room and bathroom, however the hotel was hot and stuffy - air conditioning is on floor and quite noisy. Staff were freindly and accommodating.

was perfect. This was a special internet price and I think it said 2 1/2 star.. so I was like as long as there are bed and heater I'll be fine BUT the room was impecible and that bed was maybe the most comfortable one I have slept in in a hotel.

      Great Location Even Better Restaurant ”
      Life was great! The staff are really friendly, the rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The location is really good to get anywhere in Manhattan or Brooklyn. It is a little noisy but that’s to be expected anywhere in Manhattan. Also the elevator that goes to the 10th floor is really slow so you’re better getting the one to the 9th and walking up the last flight of stairs. Most importantly the restaurant is absolutely fantastic! Best food we’ve had in a long long time!

      Some may like it more than I did”
      It may be a matter of taste, but I just didn't love this place. The rooms were a good size and bed was comfortable, and bathroom was good. What I did not love was having to walk through a very busy restaurant to access the hotel. The reservation desk is through the loud restaurant as well. The woman at the desk when I checked in was cold and bordering on short with me when I did not understand her directions to the elevator. Nice to have a small gym. No tea/coffee facilities in room; you need to go down to the second floor. Basically, I paid a lot of money for a room and no significant services or even interface with anyone at the front desk (apart from checkin) for the whole 5 days. Felt very impersonal and like I was rooming above someone's restaurant, rather than at a boutique hotel.

      Very trendy decorations and furnishings. Huge plus for including makeup remover towelette in the standard toiletries. Room a bit cramped but I suppose it's expected for NYC. Room was clean, but the bare cement screed floor felt a bit odd. Excellent location. Staff was exceptionally friendly.

      Reasonable hotel, with unexpected rate increase of 15% ”
      The initial rate was reasonable (USD 200), yet upon arrival I had to pay alomost USD 30 facility charge. This was new to me and seemed very unlogical since I had ‘paid the entoire price upon booking’..The receptionist explained in a monotone way that this was normal. After more questions she explained I had to see this liek a ‘resort fee’. When I answered that this wasn’t a resort, she explained it’s for the use of the facilities. She came accross like she an answer for every question (I clearly wasn’t the first to complain about a prioce increase of 15%)> In my case I don’t care about USD 30 that much, but feel it’s not right to do business this way. The room was large enough, yet dirty (floor hadn’t been cleaned). The room was also cold, turningthe heater on prevented me from sleeping.

      The room we stayed in for the first night was tiny and cramped, and located right next to the building's air conditioning unit (which is not ideal after an international flight!). Thankfully they changed our room from the second night onwards, but it was rather disappointing to arrive to an unsatisfactory room.

      It was good for the most part”
      Elevators were a bit slow and one of the two constantly broke while I was there, but the rooms were very clean and the service was great. The receptionist when I checked in was trying to "scam" me however. I first was put into a room that was not cleaned by accident, but I also noticed that it was not the room that I purchased - I booked a room that was larger and had city view. I told the receptionist and she immediately changed my room, saying that she "upgraded" to a room with larger bathroom. So I went to the new room only to find that it was a wheelchair-accessible room, which explains the larger bathroom etc. I complained again and waited and received the room I paid for. She was quick to admit and change the room for me but it was unprofessional of her to try to scam me like that. Other than that initial bad impression of the hotel, my stay at the hotel was overall pleasant. One very bad thing about the room is that the mattress is horrible quality and too soft.

      Good location, trendy bar & restaurant”
      Good midtown location close to the Empire State but not too busy. Staff are welcoming & helpful plus you get a free drink in the bar. There is a small gym on floor 2 and complimentary coffee machine opposite. We did not try the restaurant but this and the bar were very popular. Our room (802) was spacious for NYC with a comfy bed, good shower and a bit of a view to the south. It would have benefitted from a chest of drawers and the sofa bed had to be made up for our son. The lift is slow but the stairs seemed to work! Overall excellent value if you can get it (£200/night for all 3 of us after all taxes/fees were paid). You can get healthy lunch at Speedy’s round the corner (near 34th Street subway, 28th Street subway is slightly closer but make sure you enter the correct side for your route) and we enjoyed excellent breakfasts at Friedman’s, a couple of blocks west along 31st Street, who cater well for dietary requirements including gluten free.

      Very accessible to Time Square, this hotel is in the middle of everything. Nice architecture, interiors have character. Rooms are a bit small with no drawers to store your things which is typical of New York hotels. Some staff were very friendly, some were rude too. Henry Restaurant in the lobby had good breakfast.

      Tiny room, no tea or coffee making facilities. Staff were rude and made us feel like an inconvenience at every opportunity. We had no hot water one morning and they made us feel like we were causing so much trouble when all we wanted was a shower! Floor of the room was filthy. Location was great but the staff really let them down. Not one member of staff we encountered made us feel wanted or valued.

      These accommodations were perfect for me and my husband visiting for a week in September 2018. It's a lovely building with high-ceilinged, QUIET (in the middle of Midtown Manhattan) room, comfortable bed, giant screen TV, clean pristine environment with friendly no-attitude staff. Situated between two subway stops, which provided convenient access to multiple subway lines, depending on which direction we were headed. Would definitely stay here again.

      I've been paid all the fees for the hotel before our trip through Agoda. However, I got back and realized my card had been charged an amount of $58. I called them and they said that was the city fee. They told me they let me know when I first checked in but I was not informed anything. With the total price after 2nd charge, I think this hotel is worse than other hotel I had stayed during my trip. Such a bad experience there!

      Small rooms, decent location”
      I would recommend this hotel however, there are some points to note: 1. The Queen room was very very small. I had to push the desk in order to fit one medium sized suitcase. You could not fit two pieces of luggage. 2. The bathroom had no extractor fan and the tub was very slow to drain. There were shavings (not from me) all over the walls of the shower. 3. The air-conditioning was very noisy. I am a heavy sleeper and it woke me several times. On a positive note, staff were friendly and the hotel is in a decent location. From 7-9am there is coffee, tea and some pastries available. The hotel has a small gym. The toiletries provided are nice.

      The good: friendly staff, great price, excellent location, close to all the actions and discount parking.
      The bad: small room. The ugly: watch out when you are in the shower; you may get the water temperature just right when you started it but it may change to 160 degrees w/o any warning whatsoever and it might change to ice cold the next moment. Make sure no one uses the toilet when you are taking a shower. But sometimes it changes on you because your upstair neighbor flushes his toilet or wash his hands. Be forewarned!

      Hotel attached to speakeasy/restaurant; staff could be more organized”
      Overall clean. But once I came back, room service had cleaned the bathroom and somehow left a new, yet slightly crinkled-up lipton tea bag on the toilet.. that was weird. They had also put a face towelette which wasn't there when I checked in the first day, so I wasn't sure if that was part of the amenities or had just been placed there by mistake. The 'lobby' is more of a bar/restaurant. In the evenings it's quite loud. Everything is dark, especially the elevators. At night, you might have to share them with bar hoppers. When I checked in, there were no bottles of water or slippers. Had to ask for both. Water came, slippers came but first I was told 'they were out'. One day, the fire alarm went off around 4am. Everyone went downstairs, firemen came and left. No staff told us what was going on, we just went back to our rooms. Later, an announcement was made AROUND NOON that it was some kind of error. Staff are nice but could be more customer-driven.
