Exceeded Our Expectations. Definitely recommend
Posted Aug 25, 2016
We booked this hotel after finding out another hotel we booked has a dress code!! (Boo! 3 Club West!) Anyway we were pleasantly surprised to arrive to this classy looking establishment. The staff provide a warm welcome, checked us into a Penthouse room with a view, (as I'd requested a couple weeks prior for our anniversary) & directed is to the living room with free coffee, tea, mineral & sparkling water taps, soft drinks as well as snacks through out the day. It's a narrow hotel so the elevators were little but we appreciated the character of an older building. The halls were clean & the hints of Art Deco & gold accents gave it a classy old fashioned feel while the updated furnishings kept it modern. We get the New York isn't known for its spacious hotel rooms, so we weren't surprised that our "penthouse" was a room with a bed, desk, wardrobe, TV & small bathroom; however, we only came to this hotel with the intention of sleeping & showering while exploring the city, so it suited us perfectly! The sheets were clean, the shower/ bathroom was clean & well stocked with essential toiletries. We never had a noise problem- again being in New York it's expected to hear the occasional car horn or police siren- we slept just fine. Our view was nice-ish. We could see the tip of the Empire State Building but blocked by other buildings - again- NYC is full of buildings- it was still cool. Overall we loved this hotel and would recommend.
