I just spent the long weekend at the Clift hotel and will say that the staff was extremely nice and the decor in the lobby is super chic. The rooms on the other hand, are small (and this is coming from someone who lives in Manhattan).
Room service was awesome
Fitness center is lacking serious cardio equipment
I would probably stay here again if I got a great deal. I wish I had asked for a bigger room because that literally would be worth the price.
