Great location for trendy tourism

I loved the overall vibe of the hotel. Rooms were pretty small but not terrible. The bed was comfortable and shower was great. My phone was broken which was frustrating. Otherwise great stay.

Highly recommend dream

Positioned nicely in the Meat-packing District, and two blocks from Chelsea Market, the location was excellent - especially for those driving (easy access to various highways, pkwys, & tunnels). Accomodations were excellent, and rooftop lounge has a terrific view with schnazzy bar seen. Rooms come equipped with sound machines, to lull you to sleep - wonderful feature in the noisy city! And the room service has a yummy menu - recommend the Kobe Patty Melt. Great for couples or singles traveling through!!

There are so many great restaurants within walking distance. Because Chelsea Market is just a couple blocks away, you'll find plenty of shopping and eating options in close proximity. They'll give you the NYC feeling without forcing you to go far.

Quite a scene

The hotel and connected businesses are a lot of fun. Our room was small but clean and nicely decorated. This place is not about the room as much as the scene. We had dinner at Cherry downstairs and enjoyed everything we ordered. After dinner we decided to hit the Penthouse lounge. One side of the lounge offers a panoramic view of the city skyline. If you are male it will cost a few hundred dollars to get in, but there is a lot talent to make it worth the price. If you are looking for fun this hotel has a lot to offer with multiple bars and restaurants. If you are bargain hunting it is not for you.

Great anniversary stay

Took my girlfriend for our 2 year anniversary... Great location... Staff was friendly and were able to provide us great service to maximize our hotel experience. The only bad part was that being that I booked it with you guys and not directly though them they made me wait 30min to set up my room although I was already late 3 hours.

Great Location/Pool

Very cool hotel with great pool. The suites adjoining the pool are terrific. Only downside is the noise at night, even in the rooms and the fact that there are tons of drunk and messy people in the hotel at night.
