              • The location was great, air conditioning kept room Nice and cool, modern decor, the staff at guest reception were extraordinarily attentive and knowledgeable. The bed was realy good and the rooftop bar was AMAZING. The food was delicious.

                Bad view, times Square is less than 10 blocks south and the lake of parking place makes is difficult to unload the suitcases. The elevators are small and old.

                The fitness center was not open during posted open hours, hotel was overpriced and the front desk girls were rude. Also the tv remote did not work well.

              • One of the best location and i liked the proximity to the subway. The stuff services was good and for the money we paid we expected better. The aquarium in the lobby was amazing, staff were very helpful and the concierge desk was fabulous.

                The pictures on the site promise more, street rooms are very noisy and the hotel walls are not very well insulated i.e. our neighbours were very loud. Reception counter quite small and breakfast enver showed up as noone picked up order on doorknob.

              • In an excellent location, two blocks south of Central Park near Carnegie Hall and i really liked the modern vibe of the hotel. Reasonable price for nyc standards and friendly staff. Very small room and bed, nice rooftop bar, food good.

                No hot tub and greasy pastry and tasteless coffee.

                The room too small, breakfast expensive and sad gym.

              • The location is great and times Square a five minute walk south. The hotel is very well located for the purpose of sight seeing and the staff are really nice on the whole. The beds are really comfortable.

                Service were good the rms are very small for the money charged and from the pictures on the website I expected the room and the bathroom to be slightly larger.

              • Location /price was good, Broadway was extremely quiet and staff very helpful and had no problems at all. The bed was really comfortable, the bar on the first floor was also nice and the spa was great.

                Moved to a new hotel, not worth the money and poor concierge services. Rooms were very small.

              • The location is fantastic and central Park is a two minute walk north. Hotel is worth, lobby staff are excellent and room does not have a comfortable chair and table to lounge in. Rooftop bar is great for cocktails any time of year and best pizza/ Italian food I have ever had.

                Trashy place and poor value for money, no bath just shower/sink/loo no bigger than my home downstairs loo, for the price we paid. The guest service was insulting and disrespectful, the manager was pretty rude to me.

              • Perfect location to times sq and nice design. Friendly and helpful staff, suite was spacious.

                Hotel was not as clean as i assumed from the ad and the room was far too small for 2 beds.
