It's hard to find rooms anywhere that will hold 5 people, but in cities like New York, it's almost unheard of! We had our two kids with us plus one of their friends and there was plenty of room for all of us. The room had 2 queen beds PLUS a pullout double sofa-bed. This is not clear on the website but should be highly advertised! Other than being large and offering plenty of sleeping space, it was an average hotel room. Typical generic Courtyard and as expected. One of the sheer curtains had a huge tear in it. Not pretty and not sure how somebody hasn't noticed it and replaced it. Other than that, the room seemed to be in good condition and the beds were very comfortable. We had a nice view of the Chrysler Buildings. Location was good with easy access to the subway and attractions.
We did not know when we booked this hotel that the lobby was under renovation. I think everyone should be told of any major construction before booking a hotel. We arrived at the hotel by car and the valet went to park the car ($48 a day). We went inside and realized the entire lobby was walled off. There was an ugly temporary hallway (with exposed wires, beams, plywood, etc. leading to the elevators. We were told to go to the 12th floor for the "lobby". The makeshift lobby is maybe a small conference area? They had 2 desks set up for check-in, 2 computers for using the internet, a couple of sofa chairs and a desk for the concierge. They also had tea (no sugar or sweeteners) and cookies (good). The concierge and front desk staff was pleasant.
From the pictures displayed in the makeshift lobby, the real lobby will look nice when it's done. In the meanwhile, don't expect a pleasant welcome when you open the door to the hotel or a nice place to hang out while waiting to go out or meeting up with friends or family.
Overall, a good base in NYC and great for large families. Just be aware of the lobby under renovation. We would go back and look forward to see the renovated lobby next time.
