3 Night Stay

Great location. The beds were very comfortable. Booked a king bed room, and the space was great. There was construction going on OUTSIDE the building that started in the morning around 8am, but I was already awake by then. Also, very close to different subway lines, which is a plus. I'd stay here again (once the outside construction wraps up).

Carnegie Deli? Around the corner. No street to cross. But another deli and diner also nearby. Good grub, too.

The hotel was great. Loved the location! We could walk to times square as well as central park. Ran into a TV actor in the lobby and that was exciting.

Use one of the hop on & off buses. Saves many steps and frustrations at a reasonable price.

Nicest front desk staff ever

Really nice rooms, great atmosphere and very close to Times Square. Had a slight problem with booking at first, but it was easily sorted out and I was definitely happy with the outcome. I'd definitely book here again

Unfriendly staff, pretented to be a chic hotel

stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. no staff member spoke to us at any time, bar asking for credit card and passport, only plus was a lovely houskeeper from east europe, who kept our room in order. if you wanted to go anywhere you had to wait an eternity for lifts (as they used to close 1 lift each pm). at night the hotel seemed to turn in to a nightclub, so security always put them first. there are much better hotels in NY.

Good location, service moderate

Location was great - in between Central Park and Times Square. Easy to walk to other locations or hop on the subway. Room was small but sufficient for a short weekend trip. The front desk staff seemed short staffed and overwhelmed. When we arrived to check in, there was only one person working the desk and at least 5 people in line waiting to check out. He was left answering the phone and handling questions from people approaching the desk as well. We were early so simply wanted to check our bags. Later on we were looking for recommendations for dinner. There was no concierge on duty so we asked the women working the front desk & she seemed annoyed, saying "isn't there someone at the concierge desk?" The nicest employee ended up being the bellman - he took care of our bags graciously, flagged down a cab when needed & gave the restaurant recommendations.

Okay place to stay

The hotel is okay, but nothing special. Rooms are average for NYC (small) and the drawer space is virtually nonexistent. We were a couple and one of us had to live out of the suitcase. Staff was friendly and helpful.
