Close to Javits
Posted Feb 16, 2017
I chose this hotel because of its proximity to Javits, but its definitely a basic hotel. Lobby was shabby and the bathrooms, while clean, were dated and felt grimy due to layers of caulk over old caulk. The bed was a new, firm memory foam and otherwise the room was clean. Staff was friendly and helpful for the most part.
My checkout day was also the day of winter storm Niko, so I was basically stranded and asked for a late checkout. They only offered 12:30 instead of the regular noon checkout. I offered to pay for an additional night just so I could stay until 4 when the storm slacked a bit. I confirmed that the room was not booked for that night. When the desk clerk called back with word from the manager, they offered me a "discounted" rate of more than my original rate!! When I pointed that out, the clerk told me that the regular rate is nearly double what I actually just paid. Mysterious price hike...must be their "storm" rate. Disappointing...
