When visiting New York, and after a day of touring, the last thing you need is a noisy Hotel. We found the Verve to be the exact opposite. There is no pool or hotel bar, so you do not have that irritating noise of gathered people. This place is super quiet, and soundproof also. Not once did I hear screaming kids running up and down the halls, no loud and obnoxious drunks, or other annoying people. Most of the people I saw here were from out of the Country,so maybe that would be the reason there was a calm quiet atmosphere. The staff was OUTSTANDING. They were there to answer every annoying question and provide great service. This was the first hotel in the New York area that didn't treat us like dumb f--k tourists, that were $$$$$ signs to them. This is the 7th time I have been to New York, and I now have a returning place. The good is, the beds are great, the room was clean and the water pressure is excellent. the water even drained great. (Never ever standing water up to your ankles.) We had three rooms for 4 nights and not one complaint.The location was not more than a 3 minute walk to two train stations nearby. The breakfast area was well cleaned and stocked. No looking for a table. Enjoyable stay, and this will be our location in the future. Kudos to your staff, and thank you for a great stay.
