We arrived on the 26th August, our room wasn't ready so we decided to check in and leave baggage. We were asked for a credit card as we were to pay $100 deposit which would be returned when we checked back out as long as we didn't incur any other costs etc. I didn't have a credit card so they do accept cash. We went outside to a very hot and humid New York, we were exhausted after our flight so we just decided to go to the bar next door, the wheel tapper, the drinks were reasonably priced and does have free wifi. When we got our room keys, we had a short wait for the lift but that was our only wait in our whole stay. Our room was lovely, clean and the bed was mega comfy, I had been a bit worried as people's opinions saying it had mismatched furniture and was a bit run down, so I wasn't pleasantly surprised when I seen our room. We were on the 7th floor and at times it was noisy but with all the walking we had been doing, I would have slept through an earthquake. The air conditioning was a bit old fashioned but worked well, we found putting the chairs up against it helped ease the noise. I loved the fact that there was a fridge in the room, as we bought juice, milk, cereal pots to have for breakfast etc. In the evening we decided to go to the Wheeltapper for food, we had 2 drinks and 2 main meals and when we asked for the bill a 17% tip had been added on, don't get me wrong the waitress was good and the food was okay but doesn't deserve that, I almost choked when I seen it. The staff were lovely and friendly, Garfield the bellboy helped us out loads and gave me a ticket for Bloomingdales. The maids were fab too, rooms were always clean and would come round with water and chocolates. Would defo stay here again, miss New York already and will be back at the fitzpatrick!
