Overall, the hotel is fine and is a pretty good value considering its location. However, based on the hotel's website, I was expecting something nicer. The lobby staff were very friendly and helpful, but the age and mediocre quality of the facilities shows through the renovations. I was surprised to find that I had to keep the hot water running continuously while shaving; if I turned off the tap, it would immediately run cold. Our window faced 3rd Avenue, so there was substantial noise from traffic, though it didn't affect our sleep. We didn't take advantage of the gym or evening wine hour; overall, this is probably a better choice for tourists than for business travelers who can afford something nicer.
