Arrived 3.22.13 after our cruise to spend some time in NYC. We reserved a non-smoking room with two queen beds, and were surprised at the size of the room – quite spacious, especially by New York standards. The room itself was clean with minimal street noise. The concierge was helpful and assisted us in planning our subway routes and choosing a tour. The Wifi was great in the lobby, and I was happy that I was able to use the printer to print our free tickets to the 9/11 Memorial (recommended).
The elevator is small and slow. The hallways between rooms are dirty and in dire need of vacuuming. The bar on the second floor is convenient but needs a scrubbing, and the Christmas décor removed (it’s March people!). Also, the first bartender we experienced there couldn’t be bothered to assist us as she was busy on Facebook and flirting with the cute boys that came in. She couldn’t mix a drink to save her life. On the other hand, Lisa was exceptional, and was the reason we returned a few more times. There’s a great restaurant a few doors down called Ipanema, excellent Brazilian food.
Times Square is right down the block as are many different subway stations, etc. I would recommend this hotel if you are on a budget and location is important to you. It’s not the “W” but it worked well for us.
