    Our room was huge, quiet, and clean. The hotel was a couple of blocks from Columbus Circle and Central Park and within walking distance of the theatre district. There were nearby restaurants and pubs. Great place to stay!

    As long as you can put up with mice in your room rummaging through the rubbish bin and running down the corridors then the location is great. The staff were also very pleasant. Personally I would never go back.

    The service was perfect, nothing I could think of to make it better. All the cosmetics in the bathroom was high quality. The pool is available on the last floor. Wifi connection worked fast. The location is great!
