April 2014. My husband and I stayed at the Row NYC for our 20th anniversary. It was our first time in NYC. The lobby area is trendy and fresh. The staff are helpful, polite and knowledgeable. We got in late the first night and went straight to the in-house bar/cafe, District M. The pizza was excellent and the drinks strong. Our room was, as to be expected, very small. Twice we asked for a room with a view, but couldn't be accommodated. The front desk agent, Gezennia, was sweet and comped us each with a continental breakfast and drink at the bar. She also sent a fruit plate and water to our room. The room was clean and looked just like the online photo. Our only complaints were that the towels were like sandpaper and that the daily housekeeping service was in my opinion, poorly performed. The bathroom was tidied up but not truly cleaned. As we had been warned, staying in Times Square is noisy. The elevator "system" is very practical and helpful. We would stay at Row NYC again. We booked through Expedia as a package with airfare.
