It’s and old mid/low end hotel. The rooms are of a decent size for Manhattan, but these dusty carpets everywhere are really unpleasant, and it is quite noisy also. Old beds of poor quality, you feel the springs. In my low end bathroom, there were 2 bars of soap, but no bath gel and no shampoo. Breakfast is the standard low-end kind of stuff that you get in all the chain hotels in the US, but at least here I managed to find a real Orange that was not pre-cut and I found the staff rather friendly (that’s why I give a 2, not a 1). All this for 350 $: very poor value for money. I will not come back.

The hotel is in a great location of Manhattan and it is not too far away from Times Square. I arrived around 10 AM and was not able to check in early, which I completely understand. As a customer, you do not really have the right to complain about not getting an early check-in due to previous guests checking out at 12 or possibly having a late check-out. I talked to about 2-3 front desk agents from 10 AM to 2 PM and unfortunately I could not get an early check-in before 3 PM. I came across Vicki, who went above and beyond for me. She did her absolute best in order to check me in. I told her that I only had a few hours of sleep during my flight and she was so polite. She also gave me great recommendations. Vicki also reassured me that if I ever get into trouble, she will be there to assist me. Having front desk agents like Vicki makes guests from out of state feel a lot more comfortable during their stay. Luis and Daniel were also very polite as they assisted me with bags. I am looking forward to celebrating my 3rd year anniversary with my girlfriend here.

I have stayed at the various Double Tree hotels in the past and they have been nicer than this one. That being said it was not a terrible hotel. It was in a perfect location for tourists, right on the subway line and a short walk to many attractions. I had a standard room with two double beds. The room was actually extremely spacious compared to almost every other hotel i have stayed at in Manhattan. Since I was traveling with teenagers this was much appreciated as I was worried we would be crammed. I asked for a few items from hospitality and those items were delivered quickly. The worst part of the hotel was that the bathroom had no ventilation. So after even one shower the entire bathroom had water from ceiling to floor. It was so bad that literally water was dripping from the ceiling after each shower. Although this was a bit annoying it definitely didn't ruin our trip. Overall I was happy with our stay.

I currently am a hilton honors member. I checked in at 10:00 am by my phone application. Choose my room, when I arrived at 3:30 I was told the room was not available. I was then put in room 852 -- this room should be taken out of service. The bathroom door would not close, due to the type of door closures. The air condition did not work properly. I paid for an upgrade and this room was a down grade. The room was at the end of the hall and was so small. They had a very small electric tea pot with instant coffee in a paper cup. My fault was that i did not call the front desk and tell them that I would not stay in this unacceptable room. The only good item is that the housekeeping keep the tiny tiny tiny room clean. We were also told that if we wanted our water we would have to come back when the bar was opened to get our water. This is the second time that I have been extremely dissatisfied with a hilton property. This past winter I stayed at the Boca Raton Hilton suites and this hotel had not be refreshed in 15 years (I know because I stayed there when the hotel was new and a Raddison). When I pay New York prices I expect to get a decent hotel room, especially since I was charged and upgrade for the room. I will definitely be looking for a new chain to change my loyalty too.
