Pre-valentine's stay

Beautiful room. Bed was big and comfy. Amenities were great. Everyone was very helpful, especially the doorman. We just have two tiny complaints: 1) There was no shower curtain, just half of a glass shield. There was a tiny puddle on the floor after every use, but there were enough towels to use as mats. 2) The front desk did not inform as that we needed a parking sticker from the hotel to show the parking garage (up the street). The parking garage tried to charge him full price when he went to get the car, luckily the hotel and parking garage were of close range. After sorting it out at the front desk, I walked over and showed them the sticker.

Well located hotel, Low price room gets you a small one. LOL

NYC for 3 days with friends to visit museums and theater. Hotel is well situated, staff very gracious and helpful. We had the lowest priced room - so it was small as was the bathroom, but new, clean, with amenities you would expect: TV , hair dryer, iron and board, in room safe and fridge (one of those we bill you 15 seconds after something is removed from the fridge kind), with comfortable bed and linens. How small? It was hard to find a spot to put the second small suitcase - finally put it on the hassock- hard to walk past spouse on any of the 3 sides of the bed. Would go again but might spring for a larger room next time.

Under construction, so can't give a review of the fully functioning place. But it was good despite the dust.

Reasonable boutique, Good stay

Stayed here with the parents just before New Year's Eve last year. You get exactly what you would in a boutique hotel, small room/bathroom with all the necessities for your stay. It's conveniently located away from the crowds of Times Square and just a few blocks from Columbus Circle. It is just the sort of place you'd want if you aren't going to spend a lot of time in the room. The concierge was really helpful in setting up some last minute reservations for some shows for us. The elevators are cramped and tiny and very slow, you'll end up waiting a while, but otherwise, we had a pleasant stay!
