helpful staff - nice rooms some a little small but we upgraded to a larger one which was good for New York - good food - welcoming bar - would return to this boutique hotel - it was very easy to order a taxi at the front desk -

We loved staying here. The entrance, lobby and bar area are so warm and inviting - different than the big hotel chains. Our room was small but cozy, great water pressure and a comfy bed. It did get a bit noisy in the hallways on the weekend but that was our only complaint. Loved being able to get a nice latte in a real mug downstairs every morning to bring up to our room! Met friends at the hotel bar one night for a drink. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend.

This is a beautiful art deco boutique hotel, however design has taken priority over a functional layout and comfort for the guests. The good 1. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff 2. Foyer and lounge area very cozy and inviting 3. Good restaurant (breakfast) 4. Very comfortable bed 5. Good shower The bad 1.The standard room size is tiny, not enough room for two people with suitcases. 2. Wardrobes too small for two people - why front hanging?? 3. Bedside tables, no space to put any items on them. 4. Why no fridge in the room? 5. Expensive Tivoli Clock Radio which did not work and is located too far away from the bedside table and not visible 6. Central air conditioning system which cannot be adjusted and turns the room into a sauna! Solution from reception was to open a window! 7. No coffee and tea making facilities! Customers expect this in a budget hotel!! 8. Very expensive drinks at the bar! 9. Bathroom sink in room only a trickle of cold water and took ten minutes to drain

We chose this hotel because of it's location and website appeal. We were in NYC for 7 nights over Christmas. The standard room we initially booked, was cramped and lacked wardrobe and shower room space. We requested an upgrade, which cost us an extra 60 dollars per night. While it was much more spacious, the wardrobe and shower room were still cramped. There was no fridge in the room or tea/coffee making facilites either. Breakfast on our first morning was a disaster. The Society Cafe restaurant was not busy, yet the service was snail paced. Eventually my wife and I ordered eggs benedict each. After a considerable wait, one plate of eggs benedict arrived with two plates, eggs benedict to share! To compound it, the food was cold, so we sent it back. We did not return to the restaurant again. The other big problem was slamming doors in the corridor. No matter how gently we tried, our bedroom door, along with every other, just slammed shut. They should go to a Premier Inn in the UK and learn how it is done - silently. All this was a pity really because the hotel had a great atmosphere and the reception staff were tip-top. The hotel has all the ingredients of a great place to stay, but is in need of a bit of modernisation.

Lovely welcome, nice bar area and lovely rooms. The hotel is boutique nice bathroom, good bedding and tv. The reception area had a lovely fire and a good place to rest, whilst out the front of the hotel, whilst quiet was only a few minutes to lots of places to eat and drink

Warm and welcoming Art Deco Boutique Hotel in a brilliant location. Staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We loved the lobby area with sofas, fire and occasional live music. Room was pretty but small and air conditioning noisy - but I would still thoroughly recommend this hotel to travellers Thank you

Stayed for 3 nights in December with a friend in a twin room, and it was on the top floor. The view was incredible, all the way downtown and could clearly see OWO. What I liked - the lobby of the hotel and its Art Deco design, the location is great and it was very easy to get around Manhattan between walking and the close location of the subway. The petit-fours delivered by housekeeping in the afternoon were a nice touch. The view from our room was great to wake up and the sunsets were incredible. What I didn’t like - the NOISE. Wow. I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels, but the noise in this hotel is worst I’ve ever experienced. I thought my bed was right next to pipes or that I was sleeping in the elevator itself with all the clanging through the night. We were high enough up to not hear the street noise, this was purely internal. The beds were also lumpy and way too soft to the point of making it uncomfortable to sleep. The heavy shower handle fell off one morning and narrowly missed my foot. There is no fridge in the room (yes I’m sure it says that in the available room facilities, but it was still frustrating to not be able to store things for breakfast or snacks). But the worst thing of all, was when I asked front desk for advice on getting to JFK airport, they said to allow 30-45 mins for getting there in a cab. Thank god I added in 45 minutes contingency on that 45 minutes, as we made our check-in with 7 minutes to spare when there was traffic en route to JFK. Overall, the great location and wasn’t enough to cover the general disappointment of the stay, and you can definitely find similar, better value hotels on Manhattan.

We spent the weekend here. My husband had to Union Square for business and I tagged along. The hotel is chic and boutique. You enter and walk into the lobby which is cozy and inviting. There is a fireplace, several places to sit and actual books on the shelf. We stayed in a queen room on the 14th floor street side. The room was small and functional. Although the bed was a little soft for my liking, I got a good night's sleep every night. We opened the window for some fresh air for sleeping. Fresh cookies everynight for turndown service. This hotel is very close to my husband's office. He will be staying here when in on business.

The lobby is so warm and inviting and our room was very comfortable. We have stayed before and thoroughly enjoy the hotel. It is convenient to what we want to do and our family lives a block and a half away. My only negative is environmently friendly lighting is not quite enough light for me. We plan to stay again soon.

It was our first time in the states and we chose to visit NYC for holiday, we wanted this location as it was close to the tube and around young people our age because of the universities. All the staff were very nice including Steven who gave us his number to text at anytime for things to do and help with getting around. They have good live acoustic music in the lobby some nights and serve food there too. The room was good for our needs as we had good light and views on the 16th floor. We will stay here again when we come back as we enjoyed the atmosphere and their service was more than we expected!
