Been staying here for 25 years. Conveniently located for business. Current owners instituted an obligatory 15 dollar per day mini bar fee although there is no minibar and you go cap in hand to the front desk and ask for water. Just what I have the patience and desire to do after a tough day or flight. Brands need to realize things like this push consumers over the edge…. Nuts.

Great location. Quiet. Room was clean and big enough. Really did not like noisy AC/heating unit on floor next to window. Left it off my entire stay; fortunately, weather permitted. Also did not like getting hit with $39/night fee when checking out. Expedia should charge the full price up front, rather than getting stuck with this extra charge at the end. Misleading.

The woman who checked us in the first night was very nice, but the other front desk staff after that were not very friendly. The rest./bar was closed for renovations, which would've been nice to know prior, there was no ice machine, so I had to call to have it brought up every time. There was a $15 daily credit to the "snack store", but it didn't roll over if unused and no one mentioned it either. It was something I just happened to see on their website. They didn't offer to service our room the entire 5 days we were there. So our trash was full, no fresh towels, I had to ask for more coffee/creamer. For almost $1,000 a night, I expected much more. I could've spent a bit more and stayed somewhere else. The room was nice and big, which was a plus.

Room size for one bedroom suite was excellent, especially for NYC. Location in midtown is excellent. Restaurant and bar were closed. Lots of loud construction nearby.
