Good Hotel with GREAT Location

Posted Oct 17, 2017
Pros: Very clean, quick check-in and check-out, great location
Location: directly in between Times Square/Broadway and 6th Ave (Radio City Music Hall) and 5th Ave (SHOPPING!!)
We loved the uniqueness of the hotel, but the location was key and made our stay over the top! We had rain on the last day and were so thankful for the umbrellas provided by the staff so that we could continue touring the city, even in the rain! We did a lot of walking and the Hotel was in the prime location for shopping, shows, and touring the Midtown sites. We used the car service to get to the airport on our way out and there was a misunderstanding regarding the payment but no issue at the end and very happy with our stay.

Good value and close to Times Square.

Posted Oct 16, 2017
A little smallish but adequate. A little worn looking. Across from two theaters and good restaurants. Nice staff....helpful.

Hotel was really nice. Location was perfect. Room was comfortable. Air didn’t get quite cool enough for my taste. Would stay here again though.

Terribly small rooms, no in room amenities

Posted Oct 14, 2017
The rooms are way too small and there is no minibar nor water in the rooom. I would not mind paying for those amenities as a convenience. The bathrooms are tiny with very little counter space. The elevators are too small. The only good thing is the location. I would not recommend this Hotel to anyone who loves Jed some creature comforts and a bottle of water and/or a minibar in the room. I would not stay here again!

Great BUT HIDDEN COSTS

Posted Oct 12, 2017
A very beautiful hotel with friendly staff but they have a hidden cost of $45/person/night! They claim it is due to Expedia but they have the same hidden charge on their own site. The staff was willing to "work with me" about the charge but the whole concept irked me. It IS a beautiful place in a great location. One of the largest and cleanest rooms I've had in NYC. I highly recommend this hotel as long as you understand their hidden fee.

Pros: Location, cleanliness
Cons: Extra towels when its double occupancy. Also the 30 per day charge for the facilities should be stated up front not in small print when booking!
The hotel itself was nice. It was close to Times Square and the Theaters.

Location is great within walking distance to most things we wanted to do. Staff was friendly and room was clean. Room was very small with little extra space to move around
