It was directly on a bus route and bus stop. No need to take a car. The location was great. It's very clean.

Pros: The staff was very professional and helpful. The location was great for the East Village. Cons: I liked the off street underground parking, but would have liked to have know the charge.

Walkable to restaurants and shops. Very friendly staff. The room was bigger than expected and pristinely clean Bed was lovely and comfortable Only complaint—The restaurant was closed for a private event and we did not notice obvious signage stating that until we were at the restaurant. So we went to a place a block away.

Nice, newer, and modern. Bed was pretty comfortable. Fairly good location.

The AC Hotel offers a free shuttle to anywhere you would like to go within a 5 mile radius of their location. Even though we had a rental car we utlized the shuttle a lot. It was much easier than driving and trying to find parking, especially at restaurants. The property is only 2 years old and feels new. The only suggestion is to have some type of instructions in the room for operating the lights/tv. In order for the tv to work you had to had a particular light switch on. When we called for help, we apologized for having to bother him, he said no worries, he has to explain it all the time. The staff was very nice and helpful too.

Clean, modern, elegant hotel with excellent croissants for breakfast
