nice location, nice decor, limited dining options

My only complaint is that on the night I was there, all of the hotel's restaurants/dining areas were closed for a private party - the only options for regular guests were a small bar set up in the lobby, and room service. I wish I had known this when making my reservation.

A Night Out

My experience was great! It's definitely a beautiful hotel, the room is clean, and it's in a great location. Just a little pricey!

lovely hotel

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The room was lovely and very clean. The gym was adequate and cozy.. small but welcoming ! The business center was nicely equipped and great to have coffee, tea and hot water 24 hrs a day The staff was a bit stand-off- ish but got things done… The housekeeping supervisor was not as friendly as she could have been but the person cleaning our room was sweet, efficient and charming Eulogia I think was her name. My only criticism is that the staff could have smiled more…that goes a long way.

February Get away

For our purposes of simply going out and having fun in the city for the weekend it was a pretty awesome hotel. It is a bit of a walk from Times Square so we always took the subway!

Better than hoped

I was apprehensive after reading reviews online. Have to say it was an absolutely great experience. Front desk staff as well as doormen were friendly and accommodating . The room was well-equipped , clean and quiet...it all made for a fabulous weekend. Definitely will return to this hotel - especially if you can get it at a half decent price

Nice Hotel Great location Ridiculously Tight Bathroom

Overall a generally decent experience. Hotel is lovely (nice lobby area, bar and restaurant and rooms are nicely appointed). The bathroom was an after thought in room.. it was a tiny closet-like space squeezed in corner with sliding door that kept sliding back open when you closed it (no way to lock/secure it....so no privacy allowed). Friends with us stayed in same level room and they had a regular bathroom with tub and vanity and regular door...not sure if we got put in lower level room by accident. Location is great....can walk or take subway to most areas and even taxi rides are reasonable from this location since it is so central. Probably would look at other hotels in the same area next time in town before booking this one again though so really can't recommend hotel because of uncertainty and variability of rooms at the same level
