Individual guest reviews

  • Good views over Central Park and just 5 minutes walk to the Aple Store. This hotel is nice and has a great location, my rating is probably generous, staff is very attentive and pleasant. Junior suites are big and plenty of clean towels and space for my things.

    Design a little outdated, high price and old style. The streets are really noisy and rooms are tired and dated. The renovation undertaken on the top floors is hardly sufficient and breakfast is worst than I expected.

  • Beautiful view of Central Park, excellent place and the price is good. Plasma tv and comfy bed only made look and feel better.

    Stay in more expensive hotels, extremely Poor Service and manager very accommodating and handled issues well. Bathroom a little bit old, wet bar and slow elevators. No real restaurant.

  • Great views of Central Park and good Hotel. For the money in nyc you can do better, the rooms are blandly furnished in a sort of 80's/French Provincial fusion and elevators are plentiful and fast.

    The decor is a bit dated in the halls, bathrooms are old and stained, the female concierge is aggressive and offensive.

  • Room had fabulous view, the hotel was beautiful and concierge was helpful and staff were good. Bed was too hard and the bartenders at Harry's Bar were attentive.

    Other than its location i can find no saving graces for this property, decor is ugly.

  • Very very good location, central Park and the hotel was clean and adequate. Maid service was quick and the concierge was helpful. My room was very comfortable, the towels were large and fluffy, free drinks offered from 5 to 7.

    Decor outdated and tired, rugs in hallways soiled, price quoted and charged were not the same, working that out, communication at the Reception Desk was not clear. The bathroom was a little run down and the beds smaller doubles and not Queens, the breakfast staff were very rude and unhelpful.
