Our room was very nicely designed. Though an older bathroom, it was updated very well. The kitchenette was well stocked with basic utensils/dishes/microwave for basic meals from Whole Foods, etc. The concierge, Poldi, at this hotel is fantastic. One block from Union Square, you can get anywhere easily. Best room in the house? 4th floor with terrace. With curtains open, the room feels huge, and the terrace is a great space to kick back.
