Let's start with the plusses...the Astor has a fantastic location and a really beautiful lobby. As a Platinum member with PC, I had access to the concierge lounge, which had a very good breakfast spread as well as a very friendly staff. The room that we eventually landed in was very nicely sized and beds were comfortable. The onsite gym was solid and the concierge was quite helpful.
Minuses...Check-in was quite confused. 3 different rooms and lackluster service at the front desk left me a dissatisfied. Regular rooms are average size with ok views. Suites are large but have very few windows and feel very bunker-like.
At some point, I'll give the hotel another chance, but am not in much of a hurry to go back.
