“Loved it, planning a return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Our first trip to NY and we were keen to have a good base and decent value for money.

We felt very fortunate to have stayed here. The views were exhilarating. Honestly we arrived at night and the skyline lit up took our breath away...then the morning came and it was wonderful.

Decent breakfast and nice coffee was a plus and the beds were very comfortable.

Would recommend to others.

A superb birthday getaway to a perfect location. All rooms give you a superb view of NYC, including a rooftop bar. Additional bonus of free wifi, international calls and return transport shuttle into NYC. Although the room is small and compact, it was clean and bijoux and provided the necessary accommodation we required. Although it would have been nice to have a coffee machine or kettle available. Easy access to the subway if between times of shuttlebus. Staff very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Altogether, a fantastic birthday getaway, and would return without hesitation.

Had a great stay at the Z. Million dollar view from my 7th floor room. Heated tile in the bathroom! Flat screen TV, very comfy bed and pillows. Linens were a little worn, but clean. Room on the smaller side, but in a chic cozy way.

Well stocked mini bar, but no coffee maker in the room...I need me morning coffee pronto! Nice mini shower gels and soap. Piet Mondrian looking building, and again, truly gorgeous views from every room!

Great service. Friendly and helpful desk staff, nice lower level bar and pub. The Z gets an A from me!

Staff at front desk very friendly and helpful. The shuttle to Bloomingdale's is a short trip and always right on time. The view from the bedroom was spectacular. Small but practical room. Very clean.

The service in the restaurant is next to non-existent and pricey for the quality. Recommended if you wish to stay away from older hotels in Manhattan but not meant for local activity.

The views in this hotel can't be beat. However, if you are going in winter, expect the hallways to be chill. Staff is friendly and helpful. Showers are great. For a business traveller this can't be beat. A little small if you are a couple but still, loved the atmosphere. Very clean.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor if you want a better view.

Decent hotel in a very industrial area. The best thing about this hotel is the view of the skyline. Small rooms. Everything crammed, bad beds. Tries to be hip but there is a long way to go. Food is subpar. A type of industrial European hotel.
Complimentary shuttle to Manhattan every half hour is a plus. I will probably never stay here again.

The hotel is worth staying in for the view alone! Every single room is blessed with the ever changing skyline of New York City, through floor to ceiling windows. At every hour of the day, the light changes the view slightly and it is simply breath taking!

We stayed here just after the hotel opened, sadly the roof top bar was still partially under construction but we did sneak up there to take a look and take photos. It looks like an excellent addition to the hotel. We were briefly questioned by a doorman on the saturday night as to whether we were guests at the hotel or visiting the bar, but this was no trouble.

We didn't use the transfer service to manhattan, in favour of the subway - which is a few minutes walk.

Sure the area is industrial, but anyone who does their research would have known this before travelling. But I wouldn't stay anywhere else in New York now.

The staff were helpful and friendly and the buffet breakfast (providing you got there early) was plentiful and typically american (bagels, muffins and pastries).

Room Tip: Get to breakfast early! Not just because it won't have run out by the time you get there, but be...
