I've just returned from 5 days in NY with my Mum, and 4 nights staying at this hotel. I really cannot understand why it has been given such bad reviews. The price you pay when booking this hotel indicates that it's not 5* luxury but it's nothing like the terrible reviews it has had. On arrival the doorman came out of the hotel and wouldn't let us carry our bags in - he then started chatting about our visit with us. The lady on reception let us check in early and she was so nice.
Our room was basic but clean, with two double beds. The bathroom was also clean with a decent size bath and a very hot shower. There was complimentary shower gel/soaps etc. The maid came in and cleaned every day. There was plenty of wardrobe/storage space too. To be honest, for the amount of time spent in a NY hotel room then it really doesn't need to be spectacular.
The hotel is literally on Central Park's doorstep - first foot out of the hotel door and the park is right across the road. The subway is 2 blocks away so easy within walking distance and I didn't feel at all unsafe using it.
I would recommend a small restaurant called Fredericks which is to the left of the hotel and about 5/6 blocks away, crossing a couple of busy roads. We found it by accident and I'm glad we did - It has very friendly staff and the food is lovely (so is the prosecco if you've had a long day walking and need a refreshment).
I would go back to this hotel if I'm ever fortunate enough to return to NY for a third visit. I genuinely don't think it deserves some of it's negative comments. If you want more money to spend on sight-seeing/food/beverages then the Astor suits just fine
