I read a lot of reviews concerning this property, some good some bad. I had a great stay . Staff was helpful, friendly and willing to do what it took to make up happy even let us check in early. Doormen were very knowledgeable about the city. Places to eat, transportation etc... daily happy hour was great and the WiFi worked well. Beds were great. Only complaint is I had a 9th floor city view and could still hear outside noise. I would definitely recommend this place!!

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The rooms were very clean and nicely designed however the toilet seats were not elongated which was a surprise and disappointment in a property of this level. The walls between the rooms are really really thin and we can pretty much hear everything including even normal conversations from the room next door.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Fantastic location and beautiful old hotel. Located one block off Union Square. Plenty of restaurants nearby, but most close by 10:00 PM. Our only issue was it's quite noisy in that area.
