Location, location, location! Such a great hotel (and museum!) right in the heart of Union Square. We recently had a wonderful 6 night stay at this hotel. We paid the extra for a corner king room after reading reviews on TA stating it was a larger room with more light. We were not disappointed as we had great views of the city from the 5th floor and lots of natural light. The room was clean and the king bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed a full hot breakfast buffet each morning (included) and attended the cocktail hour a couple of times (free beer, mixed drinks, wine). The front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. Business center is large and has 4 computers with printer. We did so much walking in the city that we didn't use the fitness center although there is one on site. We were also grateful for the free self- serve laundry on the 4th and 6th floors (free detergent at the front desk). We became members due to staying for so many nights that it made it worth the cost of the membership to get the discounted rate. The only negative is outside noise at night so we recommend you bring ear plugs. When the bars close we could hear people being loud and then around 5:00 -6:00 am each morning the trash trucks came through. It wouldn't stop me from staying here again though. Highly recommend a stay here.
