              Very clean. Great staff, very helpful and polite. The concierge and reception as well as house hold staff are all excellent!

              In factthe only thing that was unpleasant about the hotel are the bell boy's services!!! Unhelpful even when we asked for their help with the bags on arrival and on the day by day ancounters.

              This hotel was very clean, with nice size rooms and soft beds. On my next trip to New York I would stay here again,

              The hotel is a little expensive but I would say it was worth it.

              The staff were very poite and attentive, without being over bearing and in your face. The hotel was in an excellent location for us and was close to al the major attractions. The room was very quiet, extremely comfortable and had a great view of the Chrysler building. I was ill for one day and had the time to recover without being disturbed by anyone. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to visit New York. Great staff, great hotel in a fabulous location.

              I enjoyed the comfortable and casual atmosphere that the hotel provided. The staff was prompt to listen to any requests, and was extremely courteous and helpful. Great place!

              The bathroom doors cannot be locked, which perhaps would not be so great for a family.

              Staff were very helpful, location was excellent, I stayed in a Superior queen room which was a very good size. The hotel was really clean. Would definitely stay there again.

              Furniture could be more luxurious, some things look a little tired. Bathrooms could have double sinks. Not enough security at lifts.
