What can I say, the location of this hotel is unbeatable. 2 minute walk to time square, surrounded by places to eat, things to do and different modes of transportation. Perfect spot for tourists and first time visitors. You will find a different type of tour around every corner. For those who enjoy walking, many tourists attractions are under a 30 minute walk... Rockefeller Centre, 5th Ave, Empire State Building, the Hudson River Piers and even Central Park. And for those who don't enjoy walking and for attractions that are a bit further away - subways and busses as the plentiful (get a 7 day metro pass, unlimited riding for $30 US).
We stayed in a newly renovated/updated room (signature king). Thank goodness we did because the hotel itself is quite old. Due to its age, the rooms are a tad on the smaller side when compared to newer hotels. But the furniture was modern. And our room and sheets were always clean. One room had a king size bed, 2 night stands, a chest and TV (lots of room to store clothes, especially important when staying for 7 days). The living space had a pull out couch, work desk, refrigerator and a closet. Washroom looked modern and was clean. Water pressure from the sink tap was good, but somewhat weak in the shower (seams to be a recurring complaint when read in other reviews). Besides that, not much to complain about. Towels were plenty and it was always clean when wr came back from touring.
We stayed from June 28th to July 5th. A total of 7 nights which allowed us to save 25% off our total (hotel promotion, playef a big part in choosing a hotel). Off those 7 days, every day was hot and humid. Coming into an air conditioned lobby and room was wonderful. But what was not so wonderful was the non air conditioned elevators and hallways. You could just feel your clothes sticking to you - worst feeling ever.
I didn't get a chance to really interact with hotel staff except for the front desk. Upon arrival they were quite helpful and a bell hop helped us with our luggage up to the 20th floor. Was always greeted with a smile by all employees - front desk, door men and cleaning ladies. As said before our rooms were always clean when we came back from touring which was greatly appreciated.
Overall a great stay. I would highly recommend the signature rooms of this hotel to friends and family who plan on visiting New York City.
One last thing... Because we stayed in a signature room, our WiFi was free which was awesome! Especially for Canadians who don't want to incur data roaming charges. It was nice to be able to come "home" and post photos without worrying about charges.
