Review Body :
Biggest complaint was the service. The shuttle driver picked people up in the middle of the street at the airport pick-up zone and drove like a mad man on the way back to the hotel. (His driving was unsafe even by New York standards.) The night desk clerk was unhelpful, away from the desk when needed, rude, and acted like he had a great deal of trouble understanding English. I requested that the desk order a cab to drive me to Times Square early the next morning. Although I was told a cab would pick me up, a "guy" in a poorly maintained car showed up. (The car brakes squealed a lot when he braked, he had duck-tape holding his outside mirror together, the heat did not work correctly, etc.) I would have called my own cab, but the additional time to call one would have made me late. The guy charged me twice as much as what a cab would have charged and he had to call a "friend" for directions to my destination. (I would not have paid, but I did not find out he had over charged me until later that day.)
If you are a guy traveling and short on cash this hotel may be okay. But I STRONGLY DO NOT RECOMMEND this to a woman traveling under ANY conditions. (I would hate to think of my wife staying at this hotel; and I would really hate to think of her ordering a "cab" while staying there. Luckily we now know not to use this hotel again.) I believe most women would find the hotel location, staff, and overall conditions to be unsafe and very discomforting. For example: The staff seemed to be perpetually angry. There was a nice, little foreign-couple that came in with me that was really treated badly. I believe that if I was not an American male, with a large build, they would have tried to treat me as badly as they treated the couple.
