Great location but old fashioned and no free wifi.

Best thing about this hotel is the location, right beside Grand Central Station. We found it very old fashioned. Only hotel we have ever stayed in that took a $50 charge off your credit card at check in and told you after they had done it!! Only hotel (out of 5) on this trip, that didn't give free wifi. Word of warning re WIFI - when you search, an option of Guest wifi comes up but by following the steps you are immediately charged $14.95 for 24 hrs wifi per device - seems ridiculous in this day and age. Think it's why they take that charge so they can deduct this fee from it. Our heating unit was broken, no instructions given re use of electrical sockets (wall switch needed to be pressed). These were sorted quickly but felt information given at check in was poor. Clean comfortable bed, staff were alright. Main reason we stayed was the excellent price we got on internet with and the hotel location. We were glad our stay was only for the one night. Lack of free WIFI very disappointing and credit card charge at check in completely unnecessary - costing us money as the credit card company charged both transaction fees and currency exchange fees twice - once for debit and once for the amount being credited back! Would we stay here again? No!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Brilliant place for breakfast is Ashley's - a short walk from the hotel on the corner of Lexington and East 48th street. Everything from a huge bagel menu to fresh croissants, fresh fruit and porridge etc etc Good value too.

**IRISH** Hotel

Absolutely Irish. Irish staff....Irish guests. Was nice, clean, quiet. The pub downstairs was a bit on the pricey side. Would stay again -- just wish it wasn't quiet as expensive, but could have been a lot worse!

Convenience at a great price

Perfect location for a quick trip to NYC to see the US Open at a price that's hard to beat. Room and especially the bed were very comfortable for the price and the staff friendly and efficient. I will definitely stay again.

Very Comfortable and Friendly

This hotel was in the perfect location for my business dinner. I only wish that I had had the time to enjoy the cool pub and outdoor space during my brief stay. As an older hotel, the hallways and rooms were small, but the amenities and services were modern and refreshingly accessible.

Short walk to many upscale counter service dining spots which makes quick or oddly-timed meals easy for individuals or families.
