This "hotel" is really a condo building in which a portion of the units are rented out by the owners. So, all of the units have kitchenettes, which is good, but all of them are as different as if they were decorated by different people off the street -- which they were! In our wedding group some people had units with marble bathrooms and French-style furniture, we had 70's brown corduroy upholstery and a value-city mission bedroom set, and outdated kitchen and bath. This place would be a good value if you really wanted a kitchen and were staying on business for a while, although I think the Astor Hotel next door is cheaper. In our unit, the wifi did not work despite what the desk clerk said, the sink drained slowly, and the elevator broke one day and one day had no lights on in it - the clerk said go ahead up in the pitch black. The clerk is just the desk person you might expect in a vintage condo - which is what she is. There is only one ice machine/vending area on the ground floor. The halls are long and the carpet is old. But is is more homey than a cookie cutter hotel. Don't stay here with kids. There are no rooms with two beds - only a cheap love-seat pullout that is very inadequate even for a kid. No pool or other activities for kids. The Knick restaurant in the lobby was excellent - surprisingly so
