The place was extremely unsanitary. Went to New York for a school band trip and stayed at this hotel. The whole place was a mess! As we entered the hotel, we immediately noticed a horrible stench - possibly from cigarette smoke. As my group proceeded to our room, the rooms appeared to be decent at first glance, but as we looked more thoroughly, we noticed many problems. There seemed to be holes that were patched up. The ac/heater smelled like cigarette smoke. The snower nozzle seemed to be glued on - it would almost fall apart everytime we turned on the shower. The sheets were incredibly thin and the entire room was extremely unsanitary. Moreover, the view from our window was a magnificent, incredible view of.... a BRICK WALL. The entire place seemed extremely sketchy. The pool was empty and filled with algae so we could not use it. Furthermore, there were doors going into the hotel that weren't guarded so ANYONE could have walked in, which greatly disturbed us. Also, when one person from our group left his laptop bag alone in the front hall for one minute, it disappeared with staff watching it - along with his cell phone, iPod, and PSP. Possible theft? Would not reccomend this for anyone. If possible, avoid it! Better to pay extra for a real hotel.
