“Needs attention soon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2007

I bought a package at the United Nations property on LuxuryLink.com and was disappointed after having stayed at seven other LuxuryLink hotels. This extended stay facility isn't a true hotel and doesn't have the level of maintenance that a hotel would have. The floors are peeling, the drapes dirty, the linen rough and scratchy. It does have much more space and a kitchen that a hotel room wouldn't have. The decor is serviceable although getting a bit worn. For what I paid, I felt it was OK but if I'd paid their standard rates, I would have been quite upset.And the drunk guy singing in the halls one night didn't help! Security isn't sufficient to handle a situation like that.

Staff is friendly and tries but quite young and inexperienced. Housekeeping wasn't quick to clean when we requested it, the phone and the air conditioning weren't working properly in our unit.

All in all, I won't be back and others should be aware that this isn't up to a hotel standard.

  • Liked — Having a kitchen is very helpful.
  • Disliked — Poor maintenance.
  • Stayed November 2007, traveled as a couple

I stayed at Churchill Residence Suites in January 2002. They have great sized 1 bedroom apartments, with balconies (rare in NYC). Having a full kitchen to cook in was wonderful. Loved the coffee at the continental breakfast. Will definitely go back; their rates are affordable in comparison with other suite hotels.
