Nice hotel in a great location
Posted Oct 15, 2016
The hotel is rated as a 4 star, but would personally give it a 3 due to room size and services provided, compared to other 4-star hotels I've stayed at in the past. They provide a coffee maker, make-up mirror and other accessories for free - but you have to ask for them when you check in! There is also a mini-fridge in the room to store food/drinks if you like, but again, you have to ask for the key, as it's locked.
Room was clean and had an amazing view of Empire State Building - I was on the 14th floor. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant, only a bar that is open on weekdays. However, they provide a breakfast buffet - but I preferred to buy my own breakfast elsewhere and serve it in my room early in the morning. There is no room service provided. Very few free TV channels, but who's watching TV while visiting NY?! :)
There is no fan in the bathroom, so you feel like you're in a sauna after taking a shower - but at least the bathroom has a window that opens, which helps a bit. Not sure how that works in the winter - the hotel management should consider improving this in the future.
All in all, in NY you're supposed to be out and about all day long, not stay inside - and so you only need the hotel room to shower and sleep. For that reason, I would still consider this hotel among my options, due to great location and proximity to subway and restaurants.
