Girls Getaway

Posted Apr 17, 2014
Pros: The room size, location
Cons: Not much
Location: Easy walking distance to subway and buses. We ate at Dos Camanos and the steak house across the street, both were very good.
Unusually large room for manhattan we had two double beds and a decent size bathroom. It was good not to feel cramped. The spa shower was a nice touch I didn't expect. I liked having a refrigerator and the wine hour was great, they served generous and good quality wines.

Perfect location

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: The location right in the centre and the spaciousness
Cons: Wifi too expensive and hard to access
Location: Near subway. Great breakfast place a few steps away on E50, so did not bother with hotel breakfast
Scaffolding all over the outside, but no doubt there will be a great refurbishment. Once inside, excellent facilities, wine and coffee in the lounge, lots of newspapers, big bedroom well furnished. Staff very helpful.

Nice location, but wouldn't recommend.

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: location and size of rooms
Cons: the hotel staff & customer service
This hotel is located right on E 50th and Lexington, so the location is great, but overall I would not recommend this hotel. We arrived to the hotel at 9pm on a Thursday and were told that our room was not ready yet (check in is at 3pm). We then explained that we needed our room right away because we had dinner plans, at which point they "found" a room that was ready. It took an hour to have anything delivered to the room (bathrobes, towels, you name it) and the front desk was actually noticeably annoyed that we called to check on the status of our towels. There are many other hotels in the area that have much better customer service!!

Not what it used to be

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Excited to come back after a few years for a special occasion. We have good memories of this hotel that didnt repeat themselves this time around. Unfortunately the bathroom (toilet) was dirty, the hot water took forever to warm up, the noise in the hallways unbearable all night long, the street noise (not the hotel's fault) a continuos drone of garbage trucks , fire sirens, and party goers from the club next door. Too many choices in NYC to feel another chance is warranted. One plus is that it's a pet friendly hotel and I was told the $25 fee goes to the ASCPA, although one person at the desk couldn't confirm.
