Good possibilities

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!

MOved room two times

First room was cold and heater only went up to 77. They brought in portable heater which was too loud. I was moved to a suite that was colder, internet was working, shower water was lukewarm at best, and the bathroom floor was flooded after my shower as glass panel covered 1/3 of the shower. I was moved to another suite and it was finally fine. Hotel was under construction and paint smell was awful downstairs. I will not go back there again.

a new find

The hotel is undergoing renovation, however that did not stop the staff from providing first class service. The location is great. You can walk to theatres, midtown locations and Central Park without dealing with the crowds of Times Square. Rooms are smaller than I'm used to but very comfortable and functional. If was a great base of operations for a busy weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing the completed renovations. A new addition to my NYC hotel short list.

You should wait until the renovation is completed.

Unfortunately the renovation puts great pressure for the regular clients. The elevators are being used to carry materials and some of them are not working. I was not aware or I was not properly informed about the situation. Other than taht my room was superb and the amenities were satisfactory, but the minibar was closed.

Just what was needed

I needed a room for one night, near the 1 train and near the tourist sites. Got that, plus everything else needed from a NYC hotel. My room was nearly brand new from their restoration project - even briefly chatted with one of the construction crew guys.

Friendly Staff, Clean Rooms

The check -in process was a little bit delayed due to us booking the hotel the same day. However, the staff was apologetic and even upgraded our room. They were extremely helpful. The room was clean, small but had everything you needed. Nice rooftop lounge.

Great location but not a 4 star hotel

This is not a 4 star hotel. The rooms are small and the hotel is very old. It looks like it used to be a 2 star hotel that they are trying to convert to 4 star. The location; however, was great.

Wonderful Location

The location is wonderful. Our room was quite small, but the basics were covered. The lobby and elevators are very dark in color and reminded me of a cave.
