Stayed here for the first week of August 2014. This hotel is currently being converted into a Timeshare condominium resort...we stayed in a 2 bedroom corner suite that was very nice and comfortable. We have stayed at Wyndham resorts several times, and my first reaction was, when stepping into this suite, was that it was small (compared to other Wyndham... More

We are disappointed to hear that the fridge was not working at the time of your stay. We know that when you are staying with us one of the perks is to be able to enjoy your refrigerator unit. Since, your last visit we have now been able to repair that unit. Thank you for your feedback & we look... More

We stayed here as a timeshare, we stayed in room 1401. The room is very noisy from the street. You can hear the cars, trash trucks, sirens. It didn't bother me at first, but then it woke me up at the middle of the night. If you are a light sleeper, try to get a room not facing the street.... More

I recently stayed here for a 3 night business trip. I was assigned a room on the 3rd floor that has not been updated like some of the suites on higher floors. The turniture in my room was old, worn and the room smelled dank. I would have put up with the general frumpiness, but one thing I could not... More

I am extremely sorry you had to spend even a minute of your stay dealing with this stained couch issue. I know there is a certain level of satisfaction expected when staying at our properties and you did not receive this. What surprises me the most is the way a member of our management team handled the situation. Rest assured,... More

Good hotel, quiet and at the same time close to Grand Station and to several shops to buy food and drink whenever one doesn't feel like going to a restaurant. Also close to organic restaurants. When one returns it the hotel there is always water with lemon in the lounge. No need to buy bottled water. And is close to... More

This is a timeshare property, and hotel usage may be temporary... I took my mother to NYC, and we stayed here for 4 days. (Room 1401) The room was clean, but was not up to the normal fit-and-finish that I expect from a Wyndham property. Most of the problems had to do with livability - not enough hooks in the... More

I was a little wary after reading some recent reviews but unless you're (unrealistically) expecting the Ritz, it's a great little hotel. It's walking distance to a lot of the main tourist attractions (Times Sq, Rockerfeller Ctr, Central Park and you can even see the Chrysler Building from the hotel!) plus it's not far to walk from Grand Central station...

This unique hotel is a part of the Wyndham Resorts portfolio. The presidential one bed room and two bedroom apartments are located on the lower flours. They have exceptional appointments, gourmet kitchens, lavish bedrooms and living rooms. The upper floors are part of the main hotel. The apartments are satisfactory, if not slightly overpriced, with kitchenette, living room, dining area,... More

Thank you for your great feedback on our well appointed suites & city views, we really appreciate it. I see that you have also mentioned our presidential & 2 bedrooms suites were located only on lower floors. However, all of or suites are actually only located on UPPER floors.

I stayed at this hotel during a recent business trip to NYC. The room was terrible. The elevator smelled like someone had relieved themselves in it. When I got to my room, I found it poorly lit with several burnt out bulbs. The curtains had stains on them and the furniture was pretty beat up. Outside, there was a whine... More

I am an owner & I stayed in a one bedroom presidential suite for 5 days/4 nights. It was very spacious (by NYC standards) for 3 adults & the room was laid out nicely. The kitchen was well equipped. We ate breakfast daily & occasionally ate dinner there as well. My only complaint was the knob to operate the shower.... More
