There is nothing wrong with this hotel! All the staff I dealt with were quite friendly, the room was decently sized and compares favorably with anything less than a five star hotel in Manhattan, and the place was clean and stylish. People seem intent on comparing it to a motel room that you would find in the "fly-over" states of the USA, where everything (including many people) comes super-sized.
For a $160 internet bid (through one of those sites where you name your own price) this place offered fine value.
The only flaw that I experience was that the towels had a strange smell, like vinegar.
To get a room across from the Waldorf Astoria, the Benjamin, and the Barclay - Intercontinental, at half their rates seems like a great deal to me.
