“Not sure .......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Because we've never stayed in a 'boutique ' type hotel before....let alone one that's not finished!.....and if your like us and you are in the 50+ age group..... then perhaps you might be better off with a more standard type of hotel.
don't be fooled by the pic of the room on this page .....as although 'our room' is tidy and very clean with a beautifully decorated bathroom it's also very small....so small in that my wife had to stay on the bed while I had showered and got dressed for a night out.wardrobe space is limited too...so if your stating more than a couple of nights bring more hangers! Unless of course we've been put in a single person room but then...so had other couples we heard talking in the 'unfinished lobby'.but other than all that the staff were all very friendly and helpful and maybe when's it's finished it will all be very nice......but just not for us!

Stayed April 2015

Walking in to the lobby in renovation (will be in this state for 1 year) is a bit of a shock, and it would be ok except....the only things they offer, other than your room, are water and coffee/tea, from hot pots or water containers in the lobby. I appreciate that the rooms were clean, that always matters most of all. But they are so small that I could not pull out the chair at my desk--the beds were in the way. So, if you want a clean bed and shower, and don't mind a small room this is good. Remember if you want so much as a bag of chips you have to go to the 711 nearby. Not even bottled water available for sale. Renovations will continue for the next year, many of the rooms are done but the lobby isn't. A year from now they hope to have a bar and restaurant. I would stay again only if I found nothing else. But hey, the rooms are clean and plenty of towels!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a renovated room. If you need to work in your room, tell them you need one where t...

Fortunately the music in the lobby was excellent. You listerned a lot to it, while waiting for the lift. There is one slow lift only to service the > 100 rooms in the 12 floors of the hotel, so the waiting time was very loooong!
Our room was clean and newly renovated, but very small, and therefor getting messy with luggage for 3 people.
Coffe is available all day in the lobby and pastries in the morning if you don't arrive too late.
Computer was also available, but the printer didn't work. Wi-fy was on and off in the room.
All in all to little value for the money.

Excellent location. We were able to walk to most of the places we wanted to go. Room was very clean and inviting. Staff very friendly and helpful. Wifi access was great. Tea/ coffee available in reception all day. Hotel is situated away from the noise of the city.

We would recommend the hotel to anyone visiting New York and will look to stay here again on our next visit.

The hotel was perfectly situated away from the noise of the city.
Our room was clean and inviting. The staff is most excellent. We were able to easily walk almost anywhere we wanted to go. The value was great.

Good value for the money! Water pressure could be better.
I would recommend this hotel for a good nights sleep. Clean and safe place to stay. Close to bars and entertainment. I booked for 49 percent off!

Excellent hotel - staff most professional and helpful.
WiFi, Tea/coffee and smiles on tap, which make such a difference - (some of the big hotels do not supply this!) - and the stay even more enjoyable!
