My family and I spent four nights here at the end of a 3 week trip in the US. Primarily chose the hotel for its location, and having travelled to New York numerous times on business, I knew the room sizes would be atrociously small. In any case as we would be spending most of the day outside in the city and the room only to sleep in - it would not matter. The rooms however at this hotel were the smallest ever and the twin queen beds would not comfortably fit a single person. Barely any place to keep the suitcases and the writing table is a joke. The shelving in the bathroom is the same with hardly any place to keep ones toiletries.
Our first impression as we entered the lobby was so gloomy and scary, with the decor being all black and low lights and people sprawled all over the sofas accessing the free wifi.
We were expecting a package by courier and when we informed the concierge, we were curtly told to keep checking with them as to if it had arrived and they could not have the courtesy to inform us. Finally when the package did arrive it took them an hour to retrieve the package.
On the day prior to departure we need a weighing scale to weigh our bags after all the shopping to ensure we were not overweight and i was astounded by the fact a hotel in the heart of New York City - did not have one. One of the staffers even suggested I go out and buy one for about $60.
Each time to access the concierge take about 20-25 mins due to the long line of people, and the funny part is the other staffers are standing idle and refuse to assist - saying that the concierge is the only person who will listen to our list of woes.
