Yes, I enjoyed my stay at the Taj Campton, but there are better hotels for the money. We arrived a little after check-in time, yet our room was not ready. This might have been overlooked, but I phoned when our plane landed, told them we'd be there in 45 minutes to an hour, but still no room when we got to the hotel. Disappointing for a 4/5 star hotel. We went to the restaurant and had some finger foods and soft drinks while we waited: $65. When we finally checked in, I was surprised to see a room only slightly larger than the queen bed, desk and dresser. Yes, it was tiny--I'd like to call it 'intimate' and 'cozy' but 'tiny' is more appropriate.
Beyond the check-in delay, the service was good. The room was pristine and pleasant. The beds were comfy, the bathroom was well-designed. The hallway was just a bit noisy. The hotel's location is great: just off the bustle of Union Square and a very reasonable walk to lots of shopping and dining.
Like most travelers, I've stayed in some great hotels, I've stayed in some poor hotels, but stayed mostly in the mid-range. This is a mid-range hotel with a higher than average rate. If the experience truly is superior, I'm willing to pay the additional amount. When I compare hotels, I compare based on price. This hotel may be very nice, but it's not worth the additional cost. There are other very nice, very convenient hotels close to this one where you get better value for the money. The Marriott is one example.
