The location of the hotel is fantastic. The breakfast at the hotel restaurant was fantastic. That's about all.
I am a platinum member for IHG hotel group so I have stayed at many Holiday Inn's, Crowne Plaza's, etc. This place just seemed way too average for being in such a fantastic part of NYC.
The elevators were terrible. I was on the 43rd floor and I once waited 15 minutes for an elevator. One opened up around minute 7 however there was a service guy in it saying it was out of order.
The rooms were very warm. I had the temp at 68 and the temp never got below 73. The service guy (which I waited close to an hour for) said they had no air conditioning and it probably wouldn't get any cooler.
One of the escalators taking you to the main floor was out of order.
The free breakfast for platinum members consisted of cereal, fruits, and beverages. Not quite a continental breakfast, but close.
From staying 50+ nights in a hotel room throughout the year, this place was just average.
