  • Location and very accommodating staff, subway straight up to Grand Central Station only takes about 15 mins. Good value for money, great price and times Square in 5 minutes. Bars in very easy walking distance, superb service and the room was cleaned every single day.

    The toilet tissue looked like someone just ripped off.

  • The location is perfect and place is worthy. Customer service is excellent, rooms are pretty small.

    The hotel itself is just outside the noisy part of Manhattan, bed linens showed to be very worn.

  • The location was very convenient, fantastic restaurants near by and the wholefoods store next door was brilliant for breakfast, our room was cleaned everyday and the staff at the hotel seemed helpful. Service was also great and bed and pillows were fabulous.

    Good stay during a busy week and overpriced at any price. Not just liquid soap.

  • The location was fantastic and subway stops was nice. This hotel was a good experience for me and my family, price was great. The staff were extremely attentive, the concierge was very friendly and the room was clean and the beds were comfortable.

    The street noise was a little intense at times, the SoHo Grand was just not in my budget.

  • The location was absolutely fantastic, subway, was just across the street and i would stay at the gem again, as i said in my survey was clean, updated. The price was great for New York and the staff were very friendly. The rooms were spacious, clean.

    Poor service, worn, ugly furniture.

  • Good price for the location, very near to Subway stations and quiet next door to Park. Great staying in SoHo and the front of house staff were always friendly and helpful especially Anthony. First night room was small and located at street level floor, beds were comfy, the sheets were a bit shakey as well.

    Hotel was just the frontdesk, shower water was difficult to gauge as kept going from really hot to really cold.

  • The location is great and reasonable taxi ride from Penn. The huge Chinatown and Lower East Side life, there's a wonderful movie theatre right next door, too. The staff is helpful, employees are super amazing and kind, the bathroom is also quite large by the same standards.

    No area to be standing up in the room and just the bit of street noise really. No on site restaurant and the nearby places does not seem to be very cheap noise, the lobby is small. The maid service is crazily erratic and water takes too long to get warmed.

  • The Chelsea location is much better than the SoHo location we originally booked, the hotel is surrounded by great restaurants of all cuisines and prices, most of the staff at the reception is friendly.

    Just poor design of the room causing little wardrobe space nothing more.
