This hotel was absolutely gorgeous. Every space, lounge, common area was warm and inviting. Exquisitely designed. Sexy and upscale. I gave it 4 out of 5 because service was either a hit or miss. The gentleman who assisted with my check-in, and the young woman who assisted with my check-out were first rate. I attempted to get coffee pods delivered to my room to use with the coffee setup I'd ordered (I tipped the delivery person cash), and ended up having to call twice (told it would be sent "right up" both times), but ultimately gave up. It never came.

This hotel is our new go-to when planning a stay in Lower Manhattan. Close to all of the top restaurants and great shopping. Plus, the amenities at the property are A++

Liked everything! Will be returning soon. Great location.

Great access to all of the hotel’s amenities, including expedited entry to the rooftop bar and club downstairs, Public Arts, for hotel guests. Extremely friendly and helpful staff.

The staff was very helpful and the hotel design and amenities were fabulous!

Rooms are very stuffy unless the AC is on full blast. Gym is suffocating in the basement.

This hotel was amazing! The room was perfect for a romantic getaway and the location was great for exploring the lower side of Manhattan. On top of that, the service by ALL of the staff at this property was awesome, true hospitality! Absolutely great experience and would definitely stay here again.

I loved how modern and up to date this hotel was, would definitely recommend

This property was incredible! Modern and cool, great design and fantastic hospitality. Great location and one of the best rooftops in NY!

Terrible staff. The property makes the experience passing. The rooms a pretty quiet, which was a nice surprise for NYC. Not a great location for subway usage. Wouldn’t stay again and wouldn’t recommend to others.

Great hotel. Fantastic restaurant. The only complaint is that they claim that they have anything you may need however we asked for simple items like deodorant and a brush and they didn't have either.

Great time! Excellent staff. It was my wife's birthday and they were nice enought to have a bottle of champagne in the room. Breakfast was wonderful. The roof was fun!

Hello and thank you for your feedback. I am so sorry to hear that you experienced an issue with your AC. Did you alert any member of the staff that you were having an issue with it? If so, were they able to remedy the situation for you? I will also address the issue with the temperature in the gym. The only feedback we have ever received was that some people found it to be too cool. Perhaps we need to restrict access to the thermostat in the area. I apologize that those issues resulted in a less than wonderful stay with us. I hope that you will visit us again soon. When you do, please let me know and I will personally upgrade your room and make sure that you are comfortable. Warm Regards,
