                • The location is excellent, five minutes walk to Central Park and Times Sq, the Red Grille up the street is also a wonderful restaurant. The hotel lobby is impressive, staff is friendly and the food is lovely, the service prompt and the prices reasonable.

                  Business center are paid, very small rooms The A/C is very very noisy and the elevators are soooooooo slow.

                • Good location and fair price, central Park, Broadway, 5thAve are all a plesant stroll away. The hotel is very well located and is just beside a subway station, staff are friendly. Thats an excellent choice to feel the spirit of Manhattan.

                  Poor service attitude, small room and awful mattresses. Very hot inside elevator and dirty stained towels.

                • Quiet, great central location, we liked the Park Cafe good food and service, literally just 3 blocks north of Times Square and the theater district. Excellent value for money, not worth the price anywhere other than Manhattan and front lobby was adequately clean and pleasant. The staff were very helpful, my room was large and had two closets.

                  S a old hotel and the bath tub was slippery /. The elevators were too small.

                • Bed really comfortable, fantastic location and central Park. Great position of the hotel, good price and the room style we had this year last year was perfect for us. The maid service was brilliant and bedrooms were spacious and comfortable.

                  Staff are not friendly and the furniture is too old and dilapidated.

                • Great location value for money and proximate subway stop for greater distances. Shopping hotel restaurant has good food, the Park Cafe on the ground floor is excellent and the staff at front desk are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are large enough to turn around in.

                  Old building and elevator service was slow during peak hours. Central heating made a lot of noise at night.

                • The location was awesome, the foyer to the hotel was lovely and staff were very friendly and helpful. And the bed was comfortable.

                  The rooms were old.

                • Position near the Central Park, the cafe/restaurant across the road does great breakfast and the hotel has definitely seen better days. My room has always been clean.

                  The staff wasn't very friendly, t ironed and the bathrooms were very small.

                • The location was great, hotel was clean and comfortable and situated close to Times Square and Central Park, the lobby was beautiful. Most of the staff were helpfull and friendly, the room/suite was perfect, the waiter brought me a hot cup of tea. The facilities were very good.

                  No free internet connection, not enough lifts meant long waits and toilet is very small.

                • The location was awesome and park cafe underneath hotel was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the King suite was large /, the mattress was very good. The service was fab and the restaurant was gorgeous.

                  Very small rooms and beds, several day old urine in the toilet. Only a minor thing elevator was very slow.

                • Between Times Square and Central Park, convenient location. Great value for the price and friendly staff. Big and nice room 2, the Greek restaurant downstairs.

                  Very old and smelly hotel, the water pressure in the toilets were a bit low.

                • Broadway and Central Park, another just a block away. In a perfect location and times Square. Well worth the price and nice lobby.

                  Hotel is looking very tired, noisy air conditioning making sleep impossible.

                • Great location in the theater district, good value and the staff were really, really fantastic. Room was very clean.

                  The information in the hotel site is not clear concerning the 14% hotel fee and the bathroom was adequate for us, I have never got use to powerful the showers are in the states.

                • Location was excellent for Times Square and the hotel was nothing special, just a place to sleep and shower. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful toward us, bed sheets were clean and bed was comfy enough.

                  The room was very dated.
