Didn't live up to expectation. Very noisy particularly on the weekend with traffic and noise from the roof top bar. was staying there for the marathon but wouldnt recommend staying there if u want a quiet nights sleep. apart from that great location. no tea or coffee in the rooms.

Nearly 300 $ for a double room, no breakfast included, everything is extra: internet connection is very expensive, no hair-dryer in the room (only on payement), air conditioning not working, extremely small swimming pool. Extremely poor value for money.

I had an excellent stay and would definitely stay there again when I go back to New York. The staff were very helpful and it was a pleasure staying there and being close to everything.

Quite noisy from street traffic. Beautiful lobby, lovely but tiny room. Wonderful staff. Will stay again but may request room not facing Broadway. Decided to stay an extra day and was given the same rate as quoted for the original days.
