The hotel was in a great location and the room was very nice, clean and modern. The staff were also friendly and helpful. The hotel is obviously undergoing renovation work which makes the reception fairly dark and the lift is slow however this is only temporary. I would reccomend staying at this hotel even during the renovation works just watch... More

Great rooms, really 'NYC' in style as I would imagine it. Excellent service at the front desk and every member of staff I came into contact with was great. The only downside, as others have mentioned, is the very slow elevator. This has to be upgraded to match the sleek style of the rooms. The lobby needs to be brighter.... More

In saying that it was clean and comfortable. It didn't offer the services of a traditional hotel and was very nosy with all the car outside blasting... More

The hotel will be beautiful when the renovations are complete, but why not replace the elevator first, since it's in use by all? The service elevator was small, slow & terribly inefficient. It was below zero & the windows appear to be original. My room was 56 degrees. I couldn't be moved until the next day with no apology or... More

Hotel under renovations - but loved our stay. Close proximity to Madison Square Gardens and Empire State Building. Rooms were very nice and clean. Only issue was lack of onsite fitness center and surprise expense to offsite facility.

The Hotel is not ready to represent the Trump Hotel Brand. The hotel is still under renovations and guest have to deal with construction workers and noise. My room was not up to standard. My blinds did not work which made my room dark due to not being able to bring light into the room. My windows would not close... More

Friendly staff. Needs replacement windows. We could see the shade blowing from the wind. Also, there was a lot of noise coming in the gaps around the window. There was a dumpster right out in front of the hotel, which wasn't great to look at. However, I understand the hotel is being renovated. Beds and pillows were very comfortable.

Rather good location (some blocks from the Empire state, but to get to Time Square you need a taxi). The rooms are recently renovated - but very small & very cold in the bathroom. Also a bit noisy - you can hear everytinh from the street. Not very attentive staff. Slow elevator.
