Not what I thought

Well the room was very small, didn't have a door to the shower, not sure what that was about. The staff seems a little to busy to deal with anyone, the pool was freaking a joke and way to small....nice rooftop scene, the Hotel seems worn out all ways around. The Location was great, all walking distance to Time Square the Wax Museum and just fun all around the area hands down. The Hotel has its ups and downs but it does its job. I ain't mad.

Good staffs

I was staying at one room with queen bedroom. The hotel interior was nice but the room was VERY small. There is no shower door, meaning all floor of bathroom was wet during shower. Location was ok. Just three stations away from time square. But I hate how well I can hear the noizes from hallway. Other than that it was ok.

Great hotel, but noisy

High floor with larger rooms was great, but don't plan on an early night. However the roof is a great atmosphere, and the rooms themselves have a great view.

Perfect location and wonderful place to stay

Lovely entrance lobby lots of comfortable seats for picking up wifi and at night made a comfortable bar area. Rooftop terrace was very special - pool is great way to cool down after sight seeing but its only two lengths wide so don't expect a full size pool - however we used it pretty much each night as it was empty a lot of the time. Bathroom in room was clean and modern double shower full walk in and beds really comfortable - air con great and location is fab 20 mins by foot from time square and two subways within 5 mins- lifts had a few issues but there was always one available for us.

Close to Lincoln Center

This hotel is across the street from Lincoln Center. It is a great place to stay when seeing an opera, ballet etc.

Parking is a bit expensive but there are garages within short walking distance. I believe they charged $55 for 24 hour parking. Valet is also available.

loved it

This boutique hotel is centrally located to so many NYC sites (Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle & Central Park to name a few.) The hotel lobby has a very cool "vibe" and the ultra-chaos of NYC is somehow avoided here. Rooms are small, but that is NYC for you! I'll be back for sure.

Around the corner is both a Starbucks and a convenience store - great places to get the caffeine fix and snacks for the room!

The rooftop bar and pool area turns into a night club in the evening. The pool is tiny and heavily chlorinated but it is something to jump in. You'll want to check with the hotel before booking and ensure the elevators are functioning properly

PERFECT LOCATION for Lincoln Center and a few blocks to WICKED!

Perfect location for going to LINCOLN Center and just a few blocks walk to WICKED!!! Loved the hotels location, room is small but that's common in NYC. They were having a problem with the elevators (only 2 of the 4 were working) - so had to take the stairs a few times. It was clean and it was a very short walk to the Subway and the Gershwin to see WICKED!!! Safe and also easy to get to from JFK - one subway line all the way to Columbus Circle, then walk to the hotel.

Staycation

We stayed here with our 7 month old for the weekend while out apt got worked on. It's a nice hotel. Good location for out of towers. Close to Lincoln center, Central Park and museums. They provided a crib with bumpers for our daughter. The walls are thin but nothing horrible. We just had some loud neighbors.

Room service is incredibly expensive. Download 'seamless' on your phone and order delivery from many local places and they will deliver to the front desk.
