I stayed here for business July 28-Aug 4. I was on the 9 the floor facing the interstate. I used the fitness center and ate on property as well.. here are my thoughts
If you are a light sleeper ask for a higher floor away from the interstate.. you will hear traffic all night long. It didn't bother me but I am not a light sleeper.
I had to be moved to a 2nd rm b/c the key lock did not work on the 1st rm. To be honest the 2nd rm keylock was miserable to deal w/ too but i was tired of going up and down w/ little help from the guy at the desk. In order to open my rm door it took several minutes & a lot of patience.
The room I was as clean or at least as clean as it could be given the basic rundown nature of the room. There are stains on the ceiling, the bathroom walls needed some major paint, the grout could use mold mildew. remover. The coffee maker in
my room did not work as well.
The fitness center is good, nice equipment and the pool is decent size & clean.. although not secure at all.
I ate at the Japanese restaurant in the hotel. The food there was fabulous!!
Each night I went into Manhattan. I would take a shuttle to a "white bus" then the bus would take me to the subway station.. the only problem is the hotel shuttle from the white bus stops at 11:30 pm.. if you want to catch a broadway show you will miss this shuttle and then have to wait or find a cab at Midnight or later. It's my opinion for the safety of the hotels guests this service should run until 1am.
If I had to do this again I would stay in Manhattan and ride the train out to my work place. This hotel didn't offer enough in the way of benefits and/or amenities that I would bother staying here again
