“Good Location - Easy access to restaurants, subway, and NYC!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Location:
This property is located on the south side of 57th between 9th and 10th. It's a bit of a walk from a subway station, but by no means an impossible walk.

We chose this property as they had double queen bed rooms and there were three of us traveling.

IHG Platinum Benefits:
- Recognized at check in.
- Provided several bottles of water.
- Breakfast (coffee, danish/croissant) vouchers
- Upon request, they provided a refrigerator in the room.

Check in:
Painless and pretty quick. They called upstairs to make sure the refrigerator arrived. No problem making sure my family could pick their room keys up later if I was out.

Room:
One of the more spacious rooms on Manhattan!

A/C worked well - great for a hot/humid weekend in the city!

Beds were comfortable.

Bathroom - the tub did not drain well, but was functional otherwise. Bar soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion were provided. Ample towels, including wash cloths for three people were provided. The hair dryer did not work....no problem as one of my family members brought one.

Amenities:
Wifi worked pretty well.
Rooftop pool - was open but we did not visit.

Room Tip: Rooms on lower floors may have greater road noise.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel at the end of September. I have to say reading some of the reviews I was slightly concerned but should not have worried. We had a refurbished room on the 16th floor with a lovely view of the skyline and we could see the Hudson River (we saw a cruise ship docking during the early hours of one morning which was spectacular). The only criticism of the room is the lack of wardrobe space in a room for what would be 4 people (there were 3 of us). Other than that, the room was very good, very clean and spacious and extremely comfy. Above all, the staff were excellent, everyone was friendly and went out of their way to help us, especially the concierge (Dominic you were a star). I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. There were two diners nearby, The Morning Star and The Flame, both very good indeed. Good location for Central Park just 10 minutes' walk away, near Columbus Circle and the Plaza Hotel. The biggest criticism of the hotel would be the very intermittent wi fi which caused one of my friends some problems but generally didn't inconvenience us too much, we are looking forward to coming back to this hotel and to the area generally which had everything we needed and wasn't far from any of the sights and sounds of New York. Nice touch was the fact that the hotel arranged one of thier cars to take us back to JFK as one of my friends has a phobia about taxis - it was only $60 plus gratuity, cheaper than the horrible transfer we booked from the airport to the hotel when we arrived, not recommended at all. Also, the hotel stored our luggage for us as we had to check out at 11am and we were not due to leave until 3pm. A big thank you to everyone who looked after us so well.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room - we could see the Hudson River from the 16th floor in the north tower.

Brilliant location. Times Square, Central Park and other great attractions are nearby.
Rooms were massive. Bathroom was a bit out-dated but okay.
Wheelchair friendly.
Staff were not good and DO NOT EAT AT THE RESTAURANT, unless you want to be charged $40-$45 for deep fried chicken strips & chips, Caesar salad and a bottle of water. Over priced and charged for things and service we didn't get.
We had to ring the reception on two occasions and ask a couple of questions, but they were not helpful at all. Very disappointed. Having never visited New York, and being in a wheelchair, it would of been nice to have a basic question answered.

My husband and I used this hotel during the last week of September. We were on the 5th floor in a very spacious room with a king size bed. It would've been nice to have a small fridge, but overall the room was fine. One funny thing was that for the 3 days we were there 2 dirty plates and cutlery remained sitting on the floor in the hallway. You'd think the cleaner would pick them up. We used the restaurant for breakfast and meals and found it to be adequate. It's an easy walk to Times Square from this location. We would happily recommend this hotel to the budget conscious traveller.

The hotel can do with a refreshment, I got early check in as a Priority Member which was great. The housekeeper found my envelope with money and left it intact on the bed for me, which was really impressive, so honesty runs deep in this establishment. The room size is more than adequate, the TV channels are plenty for the jetlagged so passing time is great. It is very central and really connect you, around the corner you can get great bagels and breakfast at the Morning Star Restaurant and great lunch at the Europa Cafe up the road, and a few walks you are in the Broadway and options options options.

I apologize you found the bed to be uncomfortable and the room to be small; please know our King Bedded and Two Double Bedded rooms are a bit larger than our Queen Bedded, as they are 425 square feet where the Queen is 325 square feet. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your time and feedback.

We had booked this hotel as the final part our trip to the US, and we knew that it wasn’t going to be to the same standard of the other hotels on our trip, which we know has coloured our view somewhat.
Pro’s
Proximity to Central Park, Times Square and we loved the bars and restaurants on 9th avenue.
The rooftop pool was great and lovely and cool (this was the thing that attracted us to the hotel)
Beds were comfortable, and the room well cleaned.

Cons.
We moved rooms twice. The first room was renovated but on the 5th floor overlooking 57th street and opposite the lifts (ping!) and ice machine. We were then allocated a room in the un-renovated block on the 11th floor. We stayed here one night. The traffic noise was horrendous and we did not sleep. Doors of neighbouring rooms starting banging at 6am.
The next morning we asked to move to the other side of the hotel and we were asked to return at 3pm to see if that was possible. The lost night’s sleep and the fact that we were waiting to see if the hotel would do us this favour meant that we were did not make full use of our first day. We even made enquiries with another hotel about moving there as the response from the front desk was so non committal.
We did get moved to the 14th floor overlooking the pool, this was much quieter and we stayed here.
The air con was old fashioned and inefficient.
On our last morning a piece of wallpaper under the window fell away revealing a large damp patch.
The queen size beds were smaller than a standard queen size.
Of the 6 interactions we had with front desk staff only two of these were friendly and helpful. We had one drink at the bar; the staff seemed miserable.
Much is being made of the refurbishment, having seen one of the renovated rooms we are not sure what the fuss is about. New furniture and new wallpaper (revolting!) and room safes (in 2013! in NYC!) Same old air conditioning, same windows, same lamp stands.
We used to be the sort of people who would say that a hotel is just somewhere to sleep, but as we’ve got a little older we value comfort, nice surroundings and good service. We didn’t let the hotel spoil our time in NYC, but it probably did take the edge of it

Room Tip: High floor overlooking the pool away from the elevators and ice machines.
