Its a tired hotel, like many of the downtown union square hotels, that gouge in busy tourist seasons. when there is more demand than supply, The Lobby and Hotel photos are deceptive!
Not too much worked well in our room - and most of the maintenance crew disappear at 5pm
Wifi was limited and the room was muggy - but the air conditioner didn't work very well in our room. As another person commented, the hallways stunk.
Hailing from NY I'm used to car free areas, but there wasn't even a place to park and unload our car while registering.
Check in was slow and people who arrived after us (4pm) were given a room before us!
No coffee maker in the rooms, and like everything else, unless you purchase the breakfast, you're out of luck finding coffee.
Local phone calls in your room are hefty too.
I do believe, future travellers, you can get better value elsewhere for $190 a night. Try Air B&B or VRBO.
Not a pleasant experience.
