I stay in NYC frequently for business, but this past weekend I stayed at St. Giles Court because we had a deal from Living Social. My review is based on the several other hotels I have stayed at in the city.
The room is abnormally huge for NYC standards
The location is "fairly" convenient. Especially getting there - it's literally 3 blocks from Grand Central Station.
The staff was friendly and they were reasonably accommodating.
The rooms were clean.
The price was fair - with the living social discount.
The rooms / the decor was not well kept. There was definitely some "handyman" special going on.
The room service was the WORST I have ever had in NYC. And notably, the highest priced (and I have stayed at Morgan's, Kimpton, W). It was literally $80 for eggs that would have been tastier from McDonalds.
The neighborhood is in a business district, you have to get on the subway to get to the sights. There is not a ton of super dining options on the weekend within a block or so.
The downstairs there is a bar on Saturdays. I am guessing this is supposed to be a draw or something - but here's a hint - go to a real club - you are in NYC.
We got approved for late checkout but after coming back from our run in Central Park - our room key expired. Leaving us sweaty in the hallway. When security finally came up to get us in our room - we literally had no time to shower before we had to depart. So it was a stinky train ride back.
So in short, if you want a clean place - doesn't have bed bugs and is reasonably convenient - stay here. The price without the Living Social Discount might not justify it. There are some other amazing options in this price point (Hotel Roger Williams, The Royalton) which are far better then this one. So I recommend, but you probably can do better.
