Stayed from the end of December 2012 until January 2013 for 9 nights.
Hotel location is in the fantastic meatpacking district with lots of sights nearby (such as: high line park, Chelsea market and SoHo) and only one block away from a main subway route.
Unfortunately you pay a high price for the name and image whilst you only get a small room with no tea/ coffee making facilities.
In-room prices are extortionate at $9 for a bottle of water. Given that there's "one of the top clubs in the meatpacking district" located in the penthouse, every evening you'd come home to a queue of people in front of the hotel and you'd have to clearly distinguish yourself as a guest rather than a clubber.
On a side note, the music played was two years behind European club music (at least) and was frequented by a wide range of ages from spotty teens to women with their mothers.
Overall, the hotel is fancy and you pay for the name. However, the location couldn't be better!
Make sure you ask for a room above the 7th floor for better views.
