My experience with McCaren Hotel was a roller coaster. The receptionist was very nice and sweet but the other employees at the poolside was very rude. Beautiful hotel and pool however the room they gave me had rust on the mirrors.

Staff very willing and friendly. Hallways were a little dark and slightly dingy. But overall a nice place with a good location.

As is typical for NYC, room was very small. Bathroom and shower were very nice at this price point. Staff is great. I did not love the mattress, not terrible but not very plush either. Hallways are a little cramped and dark but ok. Overall a good value for the price.

We loved everything about this property. Staff, building, location, and service was phenominal. Truly amplified my girlfriends birthday. Thank you.

Centrally located in a great neighborhood with many eateries, bars, and nightlife.

Thanks was a good day for staycation in the middle of a strong heat wave

The room was seemingly only part way through a renovation. The door to the balcony wouldnt latch shut and was only being held "shut" by the locking chain when we arrived. Had to ask twice to get it fixed, which it barely was. Bathroom handle was on backwards preventing bathroom door from shutting. Light switch was missing a cover. Multiple dents in the wall and stains on the wall. Burn marks all over the cabinet holding the fridge. Door frame in the bathroom was half painted. Shoe footprints all over the bathroom floor. Room didn't get made up the second day.

The staff was accommodating and friendly. The room was comfortable. However it lacked what I consider basic hotel room essentials. For example, we had to call the front desk for an iron, and had to go down to the lobby for coffee in the morning, which was only available until 11am. Just little things like that we’re not convenient. Also, the bathroom had a window to the room, which was odd.

As expected in New York, the room is small compared to other U.S. locations. But the bathroom is very nicely remodeled, the bed is comfortable, there’s a fridge, desk, etc. This would be a good place to stay during the summer because they have a beautiful pool.

Great hospitality and wonderful staff,planning on booking again in the near future

Hotel is run down and cleanliness is questionable at best. There was hair in the corner of the room, the light switch cover was falling off as well as the bedside tables was literally coming out of the wall. The lobby/elevators and hallways all smelled super strongly of air freshener it made you wonder what it was covering.

Noisy fan in the hallway on 3rd floor. Either than that a great hotel in a great location. The L train was also not running that weekend.

Staff was very helpful. Rooms were small but typical in New York. Sorry that the rooftop bar was closed the 2 days we were there.
