Photos on Expedia are deceiving. Room and roof top swimming pool are extremely tiny and not like on picture. My sweater was taken with towels from room and never returned.

It’s super out dated and the pictures do not give a true representation of the hotel. The pool is not a pool it’s a wading area and a joke to get to then see. The bar is not open you have to go to the restaurant next door that’s packed. One of our rooms had no refrigerator and the ac didn’t work. The beds are hard and uncomfortable. The windows open up which is scary when you have kids and they are thin you can hear everything going on outside. The car parking is somewhere “near” hotel waited over 40 minutes outside for car to come back to me. Would never stay here again !

My biggest complaint is no coffee. I had to get up and walk to Starbucks for coffee. I would pay extra for coffee.

So I picked this property for many reasons one being the old Hollywood theme the other being the price point was right but on arrival the front desk was quite rude when we got to our room it was no bigger than a closet no coffee maker no fridge not even an ice maker! We were staying there for five days! The rooms are very small and it seemed that the hotel had a foul odour. Another reason why we picked this hotel was for the pool and the rooftop patio, what they don’t tell you is the pool is tiny no bigger than a backyard swimming pool and the patio is only open if you have a reservation. We did end up getting a reservation for one night and having dinner on the rooftop patio $300 later, you definitely pay for the view $20 tater tots but they were great tater tots! All in all I’m pretty disappointed, seems like they had a genius market their hotel but with some easy changes like adding a coffee maker and the fridge to every room and opening up the rooftop patio to all their guests without reservations this place could be a great place!

The team who was working Saturday evening/night (06/25) was so rude and unpleasant. They need to hire pleasant people with good customer service experience.

Great location for getting around NYC. Easy access to metro lines and walking distant to many of the attractions in NYC. Hotel rooms are a bit dated and cramp but that is to be expected in NYC. Rooftop bar is nice area to go for evening drink and staff is very friendly.
