      Individual guest reviews

      • Great location for exploring, underground stations are near and within 10 minutes of Broadway time square. The decor is nice, staff service levels are really excellent and the employees are very friendly and professional. Beds are soooo comfy and the curtains blocked out all light in the morning. Very reasonable price the red flame restaurant is next door.

        Its very expensive for 4 stars hotel, not worth the money and shower was difficult to adjust hot and cold. Nasty and the food was abysmal.

      • Location excellent for Midtown shopping and grand Central Station. Bed quality just superb and worth the money. Ideal for mid town business trips, great Lobby and staff were amazingly professional, courteous, friendly. Rooms were very clean, the elevators were very fast and dinner in Gaby's was very acceptable.

        As most of ny's hotels, free wireless internet and pillows way too soft. Overpriced menus for food.

      • Best location for shopping, grand Central Station and museum of Modern Art. The hotel was quiet, house keeping was flawless and the price was very good because we booked through Booked. Lobby sitting area was very nice and service was amazing.

        Weak value, very high rates and pretty quite rooms, no street noise and very clean. The two tv sets are antiques and the remote control didn't work well, the gym is a little cramped.
