Editorial review:

The rooms at this charming hotel are tiny, albeit comfortable, and the amenities are good. It's located near the Theater District and Union Square. The staff is accommodating and the great wine hour compensates for the subpar food and dated facilities. If you want a lot of room and good views, you should rent a suite.

Verified Reviews:

  • Plenty of good restaurants around - Front desk managers were delightful - Will definitely stay here again
  • Lobby is beautifully appointed - Bathroom were very clean - Subway system only a short walk away
  • Staff were great - Free internet in the business centre 24 hours - Small gym and sauna - Rooms are very clean
  • View was absolutely amazing - Excellent breakfast - Public valet parking lot right across the street for $28/day
  • Staff was very helpful - Water pressure in the shower was too high - Business center available for printing and faxing

  • The location is excellent and golden Gate Park is totally beautiful. Hotel is a great value, lobby is nice and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. Water pressure is fabulous and bar downstairs open till midnight. Free wine is a plus.

    Rooms were small and the decor was somewhat dated, beds were uncomfortable.

  • Very kind staff and location, park next door for best rate. Friendly and good atmosphere, great price, the lobby had an interesting design. Over the hill to the wharf was easy and the service was very helpful and nice too.

    The hotel is old, in the bathroom the wall stuck out in front of the sink and the restaurant has very limited choice of food.

  • The location is very good, the hotel is smack bang in the middle of the Union square region and the lobby is beautifully appointed. The staff is friendly and and great water pressure by the way. The bar is nice and the oriental resuaurant intimately small.

    Old looking exterior and mediocre service. Bad internet connection.

  • Location was very good and concierge got us into a great nearby restaurant at the last minute for NYE. The stay was very comfortable and the lobby was beautiful we walked in. Staff were amazingly friendly and the room was quite large.

    To my opinion the hotel seems incapable of proper handling and ugly building walls. Poor service, no real tv and curled up on a sofa after a busy day. Super expensive food.
