This hotel is in a great location and attempts to seduce with a gimmick - an impressive suspended indoor pool and sauna area that looks like a pool/nightclub. It overwhelmes the hotel's common parts and is great if you are 20 something in NY for a dirty weekend. The chlorine smell (think locker-room at a public pool) and damp that pervades the compact and dark common areas of the hotel and elevators all day every day was off putting to me. It all started to feel too much like a glorified youth hostel, a feeling that was further confirmed by the quirky but basic rooms (no closet and complete open concept including a doorless toilet). Frankly the room was tattered around the edges and I was concerned about cleanliness (though the dark chocolate carpet and crazy wall paper made it hard to determine either way). On the plus side the bed was very comfortable and the white linen clean. I paid over USD 250/night in midweek for my room. I expect a great deal more for the money, even in NYC, and will not be back.
