            Design of rooms and rooftop pool & lounge / location

            That the rooftop lounge turned into a private party place after 9 pm. This was not clear from the website. / that the outside restaurant was not available for breakfast / the other restaurant was situated in the basement and very dark / the number of seats near the pool was very limited

            The architectural design was stunning. The common areas were inviting and comfortable and provided nice space to work, host guests, relax and enjoy the hotel. Especially liked the The Treehouse, Urban Garden, and Sky Lobby. Morning coffee and evening wine in the Sky Lobby was a really nice touch. Guest rooms were nicely appointed and aesthetically pleasing. Showers were fantastic. Mini-bar was better than any that I've ever seen at a hotel.

            I stayed in the Queen Size room and it was small to the point of being uncomfortable - except the overall ambiance of the room made up for that. I'd go larger next time. Jimmy's felt a little too velvet rope exclusive - even as a guest.

            Very modern hotel, nice room although not too big. Staff was very efficient. Amenities were ok also. Generally recommended.

            The room was noisy, especially at night. The elevator (?) would make a noise all night, every 20-30 minutes. Very disturbing.

          • Group of friends

            I liked the design/layout of the room very much - the (king room) glass panels from bath to bedroom were a very nice detail. The natural light it allowed into the bath was superb. Also appreciated the hors d oeuvres in the evening in the lobby which was a great space to relax for a few minutes. The wine/cheese was an unexpected surprise. They also upgraded me to a king bed room from the queen I booked which was appreciated, but didn't influence my stay/comfort while there.

            I thought the tv was mounted too high on the wall to comfortably view from either the table or the bed. Elevator service was somewhat slow but I expect that was due to a full occupancy load.

            Amazing service! Super friendly staff! Great food! Great location!

            Other exercise room didn't have enough machines. Didn't have a bathroom! Not enough lounge chairs to accommodate the number of people using the pool . People shouldn't be able to reserve chairs with towels while they are somewhere else and people are wIting for a spot

            Staff friendliness and the care of the room. The design and concept of the hotel were also pretty.

            Actually, the lay out and info on the invoice is very unclear. Only afterwards did I see that inwas charged almost 10 dollars for pantry while I hadn't taken anything from the minibar.

            Uber cool, trendy and great location to access SoHo shopping district and surrounds. Complimentary pastries and coffee all morning then complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon started the morning and evening off without feeling that you needed to rush anywhere. Location makes the Lobby a great meeting point. The food facilities in the hotel were fabulous - allowing you feel very New York without having to leave the hotel including a pumping rooftop bar that is open to the public after 9.pm - guests do not have to queue before 9 pm. Deli and Laundry right across the street for snacks and a great wash and fold service - hotel prices are sky high. Felix Bar on the corner rocks for Brunch on the weekend.

            We loved the bikes which were on offer. Chris who was on the door was lovely and so helpful. The room was nice but small. The rooftop was great. Cheese and wine time was great too.

            The hotel staff were not very switched on and lacked personality. The rooms were too small.

            Great stay! The hotel staff were friendly and intentive, food and drinks at the restaurant and bar were excellent, early check in on arrival was much appreciated and the 2pm check out is a breath of fresh air! :) The room was modern with great views over Soho, great bathroom and hotel is located very close to great restaurants and nearby bars.

            Only one complaint, Jimmy's roof top bar only had 1 person serving drinks to about 20 people at a time, waited 15 minutes to get a drink! People were leaving as sick of waiting to get served... Apart from this the drinks were well made and the views from the roof top bar are amazing! :)

            The staff was amazing - very friendly and helpful. The view from the Jimmy rooftop bar is fantastic. Very clean, modern hotel. Very romantic and stylish.

            The continental breakast is a little weak - just coffee and scones. But they do wine and cheese in the afternoon.

            - excellent front office staff, nice room, good gym, great location if you do not want to be in midtown. Overall the place had a good feel to it

            - roof pool was too small and not made for swimming
