Very memorable experience. No dislikes. Very centrally located, able to walk to everything. Very close to Times Square and Central Park.

Dream of time travel as you step back into this historic landmark that has enough updates to be pleasant but respectful. If you love to read this is a place to imagine the spirits of the past hanging out and offering a thank you for their great literary works.

This hotel underwent a multi million dollar renovation and the room decor is modern and classy. Rooms are small (but expect this for many NYC hotels). The bedroom and bathroom furnishing are elegant and reflect the style of the hotel. Close to Times Square. This is a great place to stay in the heart of downtown NYC. Within walking distance... More

We were there celebrating our anniversary because it was the first ny hotel we stayed back in 1994. The main difference is that is not as exclusive as it used to be. it became a chain hotel and ended up losing some of the charm. I would stay again for broadway and shopping.

The hotel is classy and cozy. The door man is a corrupt and crooked. Every request for a cab was accompanied by, first, a suggestion to take his buddies' town cars at a premium rate, then, once I insisted on a yellow cab, he would lead me to another friend waiting along the curb, who was willingly waiting for a...

No matter how friendly the staff, great the location, chic the bathrooms, or fabled the history of a hotel, if you can't get a good night's sleep there (air shaft equipment noise, squashy bed, wrong-sized bedding that smells of cigarette smokers in the laundry facility...), why bother. This place is not yet up to Marriott standards.

The staff was helpful and friendly. Room was clean. Parking garage right across the street with easy access. Close walk to subway and Times Square. My wife and I got a pretty good laugh because our room redefined small. The bellman preferred to use the word quaint, LOL. Anyway, it was an amazing use of the space and works well... More

We stayed here for one night before setting off on a cruise from NYC. Unfortunately due to a flight delay we were late arriving so didn't get as much time as we'd have liked but what a gorgeous hotel! Incredibly friendly staff. Fairly spacious room by city standards, very comfortable. Opted for breakfast in the hotel to enjoy the surroundings... More
