Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I paid US$2,150.00 for a small bedroom with a view to a Brick wall. It had no minibar, service terrible, room was clean, but carpet looked very old and dirty. There are no restaurants nor bars at this hotel, it closed and hasn't opened. When I checked out, got charged 250.00 dollars more because of amenity fees and taxes. When I asked for the amenities, they told me it was for the gym which I never got offered neither saw at the hotel, and their justification for a mini bar, its at the lobby.Terrible experience for a 4-5 star hotel. Should actually be a 3 star hotel. For the price, you get ALOT of better choices in Manhattan. Lesson learned on my behalf, always read the reviews before booking.
