William Vale? More like William Fail. My partner and I live in the area and wanted to stop at William Vale for a quick staycation, mostly for pool access. What a rip off!! For starters, pool wasn't even open on Monday which is apparently a thing that no one cared to share when we booked our stay. In addition to the pool being closed on Mondays, "luxury seating" by the pool ranges from $250-$600 a day for GUESTS! Otherwise you're forced around the other side of the building on cheap lawn chairs (nowhere near the pool!) and they treat you like a peasants -- & even that you have to register for in advance, they have multicolor wristbands to keep certain people away from the pool - sounds relaxing right? Food and drinks will run you $5-$15 more than area bars and restaurants which are on par, if not better than the food served in the hotel/hotel bars and restaurants. Rooms are average in comparison to other 4-5 star hotels in NYC. Big issues with heating/cooling in our room as it was consistently freezing and the water pressure in the shower was horrible and when the water pressure was strong the water was scalding hot, very uncomfortable. The hotel as whole felt like a false advertisement. Elevators were slow and creaky? Yikes. Gym is VERY small for a hotel of this size, maybe 8 people can be in there at a time? I'd imagine it's impossible to get in there if the hotel was busy. The only saving grace is the Westlight which is a gorgeous rooftop bar which has amazing view

The day I arrived, it had been raining in the morning. When I checked into the hotel it was sunny and hot, but the pool was closed. It seems off to have that as a main draw and to not have more of a plan to make it available. The second day, a fire drill (or something, I didn't get any explanation after calling the front desk) sounded in the morning and continued going off sporadically, making it impossible to enjoy the room or even be in it. Later that day, the water was shut down for the whole building because of a maintenance issues (again, vert little information was shared). This lasted for hours. I'm just a bit in awe at how many issues there were for such a highly revered hotel and I'm really disappointed with my time there. There wasn't even any acknowledgement that there were so many inconveniences.
