We were very disappointed with the way this hotel nickeled and dimed us because we have never found that to be the case with NYC hotels. We reserved one room at the regular price and when we called ahead to request that the room have 2 double beds rather than 1 king, we were told that there would be an... More

The hotel is very swanky and in a great location. I would recommend the eleventh floor to get the beautiful view of Linclon Center. The bedding was comfortable and the room service was efficient. The Rooftop pool is beautiful and would recommend

Mine may not be a fair review. My room was a queen express. Very small quarters, but clean. I assume other rooms are larger. Overall, everything was rather dark. The bathroom was difficult to navigate, but everything was in working order. For me, when visiting New York, it's more about location than accommodations. As long as everything is clean, I'm... More

So I booked this hotel before reading reviews; as you can imagine I got a little worried after I started reading them and almost cancelled but I went for it... and SO glad I did. Check-in was quick & simple. **BIG thank you to Sherry for offering a free room upgrade (from a standard queen to a superior king) and... More

Excellent reception from Ze on the desk, nothing was a problem. As a honeymoon couple we were instantly upgraded without even having to ask. Room very spacious with great view, lovely and clean. Great shower and very comfy bed. Very impressed!

Stayed with wife for 5 days. Nice location, close to Central Park! Quiet and clean. The personnel is friendly and gives a lot of attention. Especially Pasquale at the front desk! Thank you! This hotel has a club on the top floor, but you don't hear it at night.

The lobby of this hotel was my favorite. Very sleek and sexy. Check-in was friendly. The rooms need a little updating. Our door lock was broken and the bathroom was really small. My favorite part was the rooftop bar. There was a line downstairs to go up but we showed them our room key and they let us skip the... More

Jose at the front desk was great. When I told him I was getting engaged that night he upgraded me from a standard queen room to a deluxe king! The only drawback is that I had to call twice to ask for a disposable razor and it never did arrive. So bring your own razors!
