The room on the first day was fine but was not cleaned the last two days of my stay and towels were not changed the whole time there and the staff did not respond to my request for clean towels. The shower water leaked out on the floor all three days. The check in desk was a table with one chair. Do not plan on going back!

This is definitely not a four star hotel. I'm being generous by giving it two stars. The three biggest issues are SAFETY (both personal, property and informational), service and lack of cleanliness. When we tried to check in early at 2 p.m. we were told that the room wasn't ready, but that we'd be sent a mobile room key when our room was ready. Check in time is posted as 4 p.m. We never received anything telling us our room was ready so we were very nervous when we arrived at 6 p.m. and there was no one in the lobby to check us in or give us keys. We tried to call the number on the website and our confirmation email, but no one answered. The scary part was that the computer at the check in desk, which is open and accessible to anyone, was completely unlocked so we could access our reservation and see that we had been assigned a room. Anyone walking in from the street could have accessed that (and possibly more) information. Definitely not a secure system for keeping guests information safe and secure. In addition, there were clearly bags that other guests had left for safekeeping out in the open and could have been easily taken by anyone. After about 15 minutes, the clerk returned to his desk saying he had to take care of a guest issue. He was unapolegetic and dismissive of our concerns. I asked him to have the manager call me to discuss the lack of service but I never received a call.

The room was clean, the bed was good and the shower was great. This is NO category 5,6, or 7. in Manhattan. The furniture and paint can use an update, but it looks like that is what they are doing. The area was fun - great place to walk around, eat , drink, and people watch. We did not use the pool I understand it was an extra up charge ($$$$)

This hotel is absolutely awful. I stayed there a few years ago and while not outstanding it was fine. The hotel looks shabby, maybe there was flooding after the hurricane,. Old carpets bunched up on the floor as if to cover up something, which were easy to trip on. The room they gave me, although it looked pretty empty, was 100 degrees. They do n't even check to see what's working before they assign a room? They had me wait so the "engineer" could check the a/c, and ended up moving me across the hall after I sat waiting for a time in the lobby. No one offered to assist with the room move or apologized. This room was dirty and broken down , sockets coming out of the wall, I wanted to leave but it was late and I had a very early flight. It freaked me out to sleep there, I was up most of the night . I wrote the person who emailed me the day before I got there, and it was bounced back to me as if this person did not exist; it was not a do not reply email. I would try to register my concerns again but I am convinced that there is no one running the place. The pool area looked pretty run down as well, Don't waste your money, it was truly depressing and I believe I should be entitled to a full refund. Don't wa

My friend and I made a reservation for the pool this past week to escape the atrocious heat and humidity from the city. We were greeted warmly by Eric and Luis. It's a fun way to spend the afternoon. My friend and I didn't order drinks although the drink menu looked fabulous. We opted for lunch instead which you order from a menu via the QR code on your phone. Allow for about 30 minutes for lunch to be delivered. Pool is clean and it's a fun, interesting crowd. We'll definitely be back! It's a super convenient location - accessible too by the East River ferry (6 block walk). We'll be back!
