Bathroom smelled strongly of mod and the mold could be easily seen on the floor, bathtub, and shower curtain. I asked for a shampoo bottle everyday but housekeeping left multiple bottles of body/hand lotions. No shampoo bottles but 5 lotion bottles one day.

They seem to be understaffed with English speaking hotel personnel. The place could use a good deep cleaning. Hallways and rooms had a stale smell to them.

The TV was 95% Spanish channels. My friend's expensive camera was taken from her bedside table and placed behind the microwave. The blankets had tiny holes in them. My NYC experience has been ruined. We all hated it SO MUCH.
