Second time here and was very happy. The room was tiny BUT wonderful mattress so I don't care. Bathroom has wonderful pressure...lots of hot water. I have a recommendation for the hotel.....and for future visitors. There is a 'nightclub of sorts on the roof and it is very popular on the weekends....lines of 'beautiful people' waiting outside to take a separate elevator to the top. If staying at the hotel...bring something flashy to wear. The issue is I was with my family and after the kids were in bed...I wanted a drink but not at the 'nightclub on the roof'....anyway, the hotel bar in the lobby....which is beautiful, closes around midnight. (early for NYC). I think it should be open later. This may sound petty, and take it for what it's worth but after a long day of sightseeing with the kids, I wanted a grown up drink, but didn't want to hit the nightclub. (Note: this was a Friday and Saturday night) I also noticed that there were at least 10 other adult hotel guests showing up later after a show for a beverage, whom were not the 'rooftop nightclub' type. I ended up going down the street to another establishment. In any event....I'd stay here again.
