                  • Couple

                    Perfect location: close to trendy shopping, nightclubs, bars&restaurants + the wonderful The High Line Park (must see!) Nice pool and seating areas! Very good service at the pool (free frozen fruits++) Very comfortable bed in the rooms. The design was very consistent and cool in every detail, loved it!

                    Most of the staff were friendly, but unfortunately some felt they were more important than their guests... Ps: Did not try the restaurant, which seemed very lively in the weekends, but very empty in the week. (Would have expected better cocktails in the bar...) No iron (you must ask for it). There was a private pool-party on Saturday, so they closed the area at 5 pm.

                    The hotel is 'high style' and in an excellent position .

                    It is let down by poorly thought through procedures and poorly trained staff, they all answer any request with the word 'absolutely' then, unless it will lead to a tip they forget to do anything about it. The elivator capacity is too little leading to massive waits (20 mins) so what do they do at night ? turn one of the three off so it only goes to the rooftob bar (whose entry chriteria is never explained and impossible) making the wait longer. The place is the absolute definition of 'style over substance' . I was there five nights and the fire alarm went off on 4 occasions, thy had no clue how to turn it off.

                    Nice, extremely comfortable rooms, a little smaller than expected but extremely clean and cosy.

                    We were awoken a number of times during the night by the fire alarm, all false alarms. Was exhausted the following day, so didn't get to enjoy our day in nyc due to lack of sleep.

                    Very hip and happening. Beautiful people. Cool restaurant and bar. Nice (small) pool. The trendy rooftop bar has an excellent view of Manhattan.

                    The hotel is new. The staff were uninformed and under trained. I booked a suite for 5 nights and wanted to leave after 1. The room was tiny. It had no storage for clothes or luggage. The minibar was well stocked, but there were no tea/coffee making facilities. It was too expensive for what I got.

                    Thought the hotel and the staff were very friendly but they really must sort out the roof top bar, as regards to access for Hotel guests!!! I only stayed in the hotel because of the roof terrace bar , and was denied access on the Friday night by the door man, at 40 years old I am obviously not Young emough or beautiful enough for the venue !!! The Gay doormen was extremely rude, I said to him that he was very rude and his reply was 'I don't care Honey'. 'Get out of my personel space'. This upset me so much!!! Horrible little man !!!

                    It is a lively place.

                    I was given a Queen room that not only is "Queen" as far as the size of the bed is concerned, but also for the size of the room itself . It so small that you can only stay in bed and not move around it. The bathroom has no place where to putt your toiletries. Price was disproportionate usd 452 for 17 sqm room.

                    The pool is amazing. it has a South Beach meets Manhattan vibe to it. Another plus is that the rooftop bar/lounge is pretty awesome at night.

                    When I visited, the hotel just opened, so it was still getting some of the kinks out. For example, upon arrival, the pool was leaking though the ceiling in the lobby:(

                    Not much, very pretentious.

                    Almost the whole experience. Couldn't get to most of the bars because they were for private parties!!!! Breakfast for 2 came to 60 dollars. Room smelled and had an ancient faded rug with red wine stains on the floor. Lights wouldn't work properly,the list could go on but I'm too angry.

                    I loved the decor, the restaurant and the service.

                    I left my necklace behind and it wasn't found by staff.....i was disappointed because I called only hours after I checked out and I know exactly where I left it.

                    All the staff were very helpful and friendly, the hotel itself is very edgy & modern, and I love the fact that it is in the Meatpacking District. Everything you need is an easy walk or train ride away and there is so much to see in the Meatpacking District with it's quaint little streets full of interesting shops and wonderful cafes/restaurants. Will come back next year and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for something a little different.

                    Loved the enormous windows that gave me a great view of the city. They opened! Staff was great.

                    The staff from the bell men to the concierge were very helpful. They may not have been as polished or smooth as some higher end business hotels, but that was ok given the boutique nature of the hotel.

                    This hotel partied on the weekends. Now, that's fine, but I want my hotel to be an escape, an oasis from the hub bub. It wasn't my plan to be in the thick of a pool party. I was 5 flights up from a pretty rocking pool party on Sunday night. That's fine, but I had a business meeting the next day. I just wasn't on the same page.

                    Staff was lovely, location perfect as it was near to restaurants, bars, shopping etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel anytime.

                    The rooms, especially the bathrooms could be in better condition.

                    Great location , very friendly staff , the hotel is very design with a trendy clubbing mood. The chelsea market , the highline and the gay chelsea district are just around the corner.

                    The lifts are so slow and busy it can take ages to get one
