We stayed here for four nights during April. Upon pulling up outside we were greeted by the bell boys who are extremely friendly and helpful, easily the best staff at the hotel. They said they could either park the car for us which costs $55 per 24 hours or they could let us know where a cheaper garage was.
The room (a double deluxe with two queen beds) was pretty spacious and very clean. The beds were comfy and a good nights sleep was had by all until the morning when we were woken up at 7.30 am by builders working on a site directly opposite our window.
I didn't use the gym (too busy exploring the city!) and the pool wasn't open yet so I can't comment on those.
Every night a woman came around with chocolates to put on the pillows and a bucket of ice, if you were out then she'd also close your curtains for you.
The location is great, Broadway, a cinema, lots of restaurants and multiple subway stations are near by. If you get a chance, visit Links which is next door for amazing sausages!
However there are a few drawbacks; whilst wifi is free on the second floor and in the lobby, if you want it in your room it costs $15 per day! We had breakfast in the restaurant one day and whilst on our booking form it said we could have the cooked breakfast for $15, they said they were only connected to the hotel in a physical sense, not a business sense and said we had to pay $17. We added it to the room bill and when we paid at the end of the stay we had to get them to reduce it to $15.
