Let me begin by saying that there's little wrong with the hotel: rooms are good, beds excellent, and staff friendly. I'm not sure which group of guests they are targeting, but if it is people who are looking for a good place to stay while avoiding Manhattan prices, there's still some room for improvement. The shuttle service they provide turns out to be a single minivan capable of seating 9 people. It leaves the hotel at 8, 10, and every 2 hours untill six, then 9.00 pm and 11.pm. The only place to get a return trip is the Hilton at 54th and 6th ave.also on a two hour staggered basis. You'll pay $20 a head per return trip, so with my family of three I had to add $60 every day for transport, that puts you in a price bracket where staying in manhattan becomes more attractive. Coupled with a mediocre and $15 breakfast, alternatives suddenly become viable..
And what's with a pool and fitness centre that closes at noon and stays closed until the next morning??
