                    • Family with children

                      The rooms were very luxurious and luckily we were upgraded to 2 larger rooms after I complained about being given a small room with rollaway bed ( I had booked a room with 2 double beds and for the price, I wasn't happy initially). The location was amazingly central and convenient to everything in Manhattan. The renovations in the foyer didn't really bother us, and I'm sure it will look beautiful when finished.

                      I think a pool would be perfect, especially as we were visiting in July.

                      A lot of construction work going on in hallways and common areas. Room had stale smell - in fact a portable air purifier was installed in the room and operating. Bathroom a little dirty.

                      Being next to Grand Central Station!

                      The hotel lobbey was under construction & this had great disadvantages. The construction noise was annoying, but luckily since we were out all day we did not have to hear it. Also the gym was too small & not inviting for work out!

                      Saw a Broadway show and ate in the food court at Grand Central. It is very convenient and my favorite place to stay in New York.

                      I can't afford it. Ufortunately when I travel under per diem on busness the cost exceeds my lodging allowance.

                      Poor service, everything was broken in the room, breakfast a la cart for unreasonable money. Not a Hyatt class.

                      the location is excellent - very central to all the sights. Staff, from check in to housekeeping, was helpful and efficient.

                      paying for internet - very cheap to not include this in the price of rooms ; also, lobby is currently being renovated - a bit chaotic and crowded.

                      Location is great.

                      Service was variable - guest requests were not fulfilled. The bathrooms were not as clean as they could be

                      Poor management. We have booked and paid for 3 nites of stay (2+1)Howvever, the hotel database did not update . As a result, the cleaner threw away my washing cream as she thought that we had already checked out the hotel desipte the facts that our laugages were still in the room. During the 3rd day of stay, we have been disturbed by the hotel staff for few occaasions asking why we have not checked out on the 3rd day and one Manager even using the master key to open the door when we were in the room. I am deeply disappointed and we never be back again.

                      My room had old food in the refrigerator, black hairs in the bed, and a wet spot on the bed.

                      Manager was helpful with problems. Rooms quiet.

                      Dirty mildew shower curtain, new lighting system installed that didn't work and would automatically turn lights off in room.
