We stayed here last weekend in a corner room on a high floor. Great views, roomy bathroom and good pressure in the shower head (something that seems too frequently lacking these days). The bed also was very comfortable.
Location was exactly what you'd expect two blocks south of Houston. We did enjoy the candy store across the street and walked into the Tenement museum around the corner, but didn't have time for a visit there. (We promised to return).
The desk clerk was friendly and got us into our room quickly and painlessly. Room service came quickly when we called.
So on balance we liked this hotel once we were in our rooms. We didn't particularly like the garish entryway (plush red carpet?), which looked a little run-down. But other than that, it was fine.
