Very pleased with a great service at your property! Thank you all

My daughter and I booked the DaVinci hotel for our November 2019 NY trip. Pros: Great location! If you can walk a mile you can walk to just about anywhere in Manhattan. Good water pressure in the shower, hot water and decent towels. Bathrooms were nice, old world charm (including small). Front desk was always staffed with polite friendly young people. The maid service was very friendly and helpful. Cons: We were originally assigned room 103 which was no bigger than a dorm room with two queens beds stuffed in it. Definitely a fire trap. Not only would we have never gotten out but they never would have found our bodies! No biggy, we could take our chances and handle all that but when the heating pipes began clunking (and I mean clunking!) it was too much. We were exhausted and settled in for the evening so agreed to stay in the room. The next morning we were offered room 501 which was significantly larger and, as far as we could tell, far enough away from the clunking boiler pipes to be tolerable. We even had two windows that I thought maybe we’d actually have a chance of escaping from if there really was a fire (because there certainly wasn’t an outside fire escape). The beds are like sleeping on plywood, the pillows like bags of sand. No control over the heat in that room so we slept with our windows open because it was so hot. We’re from the Midwest and maybe expect a little more for our money. Paying $1000 for 4 nights in this place was a little over the top for us.

Nearest property to every place I needed to be. Absence of a luggage storage room was a surprise, and I was invited to leave luggage in the lobby for the morning.

like - location, don't like - rooms tiny, cold inside, dark, breakfast not good, bed was moving

Room located on main corridor to elevator- very noisy all night through 2am Very annoying and not relaxing.

Loved my stay. It was comfortable and clean Nice hotel

Nice place for the price. Clean accommodations, friendly staff, and a good location. One complaint: I arrived early and wanted to check my bags before checking in and they don't/won't do that. They offered to let me leave my bag leaning against the wall in the lobby but I'd have to do so at my own risk. No thanks!

Certainly not a four star hotel, but very clean, with a polite staff and only a couple of blocks from the park. Only drawback for me was that the internet connection was horrible - which is problematic if you are trying to get some work done.

Hotel is on a somewhat quieter side street and our room location limited street noise and increased our comfort. The room is small as expected in New York and is in good condition. The staff are nice, but are ultimately unable/non-empowered to bring issues to satisfactory resolution. The key card lock failed on our door half-way through our stay -- not the keys themselves, but the lock unit. The room could only be opened by a master staff key. For three days, we needed a staff escort to enter our room on an upper floor. During this time, maintenance was promised several times but never delivered. Management never contacted us to ensure our satisfaction or to offer any form of compensation as a gesture to alleviate our inconvenience. While I recommend staying here and would consider doing so again, I am not able to offer the enthusiastic recommendation I might have provided had a timely and reasonable resolution been provided in our situation.

for the greatly reduced Orbitz price, this was wonderful! Shabby but fine, with (thankfully) wooden floors instead of the usual scuzzy rugs. Bed a bit too soft for my taste, but otherwise no complaints.

Indifferent front desk staff; room HVAC unacceptably loud; mattress sunken in middle; lobby shabby and lacking in comfort; we arrived early and wanted to drop off our luggage before check-in and were told to leave our bags against the wall in the lobby-completely out in the open. When we questioned that logic we were told there was nowhere else to put it. Overall, we understand the need to be open-minded when staying in these old hotels. This experience, however, was entirely charmless.

So close to Central Park and Times Square. I will use it again. Hotel is old. But covered my needs. Breakfast basic but enough. Had my own bathroom. The heater in my room was broken. But I used a portable one. So was good. I was there in December. Happy with my stay.

We stayed at the Di Vinci hotel to go sight seeing in the city. The hotel is close to the subway, Chipotle, and Central Park. The staff was very courteous! They'll watch your bags is you arrive early or if you want to go out after check out time. It was a very pleasing experience!

This is a "legacy" hotel. If you want a room to sleep in, and nothing more, at a cheap and clean hotel then this is a good choice. The rooms are small, which is not a problem unless you have a lot of luggage.

You cannot beat the location of the Da Vinci - a four minute walk to Carnegie Hall or Central Park. An easy walk to Times Square or MOMA. The rooms I've stayed in are modest; decent bed and sheets, but the lighting is terrible. At least there were bulbs in all the light fixtures this time; last time I stayed one of the lamps had no bulb. You need to have all the lights on to get the dimmest glow in the room. The rooms I've stayed in have no view, but look out onto a Dickensian courtyard with an AC unit. The desk, chairs, and chest of drawers look like hand-me-downs from 1970. The TV channel takes a long time to change which makes TV watching a big chore and not even worth it. The best part of the room is the bathroom, I've never had a problem with the shower, water pressure, water heat, toilet, etc. The toiletries they provide are good quality. Ask where your room will be and try very hard not to stay on the first floor as it is very loud. You will not be able to sleep past 6 a.m. unless you have the AC on as white noise. If you can afford better, you might want to spring for it.

hotel does not had a place or room to hold the luggage until the time is for check in

We totally enjoyed our stay here. The room was quiet and comfortable; the location was super convenient to restaurants, museums and Central Park. The Italian restaurant/ bar in the basement was an added plus.
