Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
My family and I took a New Years trip to NYC. The hotel is centrally located in midtown Manhattan and surrounded by great restaurants, pizza, places, coffee shops, and delis. The staff was very kind and helpful. The roof offered a balcony that overlooked Park Ave. Loves the complimentary coffee, sodas, and snacks in the lobby as well. We would absolutely stay here again!!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Staff was very good, polite. We had a mechanical problem with the room which they attended to on our last evening. Wish I had called sooner! They handled it very well as soon as I brought it to their attention. Lobby was very nice. We had a King Suite which was spacious. The sofa bed was challenging to open and close! There was a small balcony. Sadly there was a planter with weeds and cigarette butts which needed attention. The 25 resort fee was high since there were no other amenities other than coffee, soft drinks and limited snacks. Due to Covid. I think they usually serve breakfast. No gym. So not sure if the fee is higher when there is breakfast. Overall good hotel with good service and location!

Good size room for family of four, location quiet for NYC and easy to walk up to Times Square or down to Tribeca. All day beverages and snacks for guests is a nice perk.

I came here based on all the excellent reviews, for reference I typically stay at top 4/5 star hotels. This hotel is clean and the staff is genuinely nice. It feels as if it hasn’t been refreshed since 1970. From the old red drawstring curtains in the room to the faux velvet seating seemingly everywhere. The furniture and decor needs major work. The staff is excellent. The owner or proper manager really should consider a major refresh. For the price/location still a reasonable option as long as your expectations are tempered.
