The hotel was fab. The room was amazing, especially that we could see the empire state and chrysler building from the balcony. The room was very modern, with huge beds. The sliding doors on the ensuite were funky and reminiscent of a traditional Japanese ryokan (which i loved, envoking memories of my travels in Japan last year). The rooftop bar was really good, great food and gorgeous cocktails. I have to say a big thank you to George on reception as he really made our day with such a lovely welcome, after a difficult and long day travelling on the way over. Nothing was too much for George, very friendly and welcoming despite being on the evening shift :) The breakfast was very good with lots of choice. Although you are in danger of spending a lot of time just soaking in the view and enjoying a meal - which is fine if you have the time and are not trying to cram everything into a 5 day break ;)
Yes the nightclub was noisy on the Friday and Saturday night. The music could be heard from our room, which was on the second floor. I was still able to sleep (It may have been a different story if on a floor closer to the nightclub), but was woken by a drunken row between a girlfriend and boyfriend early hours of Sunday morning.

Stayed here when me and my wife went to NYC this spring since it was a better bang for our buck. We wanted a place that's modern and luxurious and that's what we got. We had a hotel shuttle to take us to the subway and then it was only a 5 minute ride to downtown Manhattan. The restaurant and club upstairs was really fun! You can't beat the skyline view from the top while having a few drinks! We also had the same view from our room below. I would recommend this hotel for young couples that want a great place to stay while enjoying the city.

We founded your hotel quiet noisy during the night due to traffic on the bridge. We hope that your new part will be much better isolated. Especially the sliding doors are poor isolated. Futher on was the breakfast poor in choice : limited sorts of bread, no meat nor cheese. Although modern of infrastructure, the rooms seems to be very used (scratched everywhere on the furniture, the walls and the floor.)

My first stay at this hotel and probably my last. Was in NYC for business but did not want to pay the NYC prices (which I should have). I took a cab from JFK to the hotel which was easily accessible. Lobby was nice, staff was reasonably friendly. The room however left a bit to be desired. To room was loud due to the Queensboro bridge traffic and poorly sealing sliding glass door as well as noisy neighbors. Finishes were sub par...looks like it was remodeled on the cheap. The toilet ran on it's own every few minutes and the shower took forever for hot water. I also wanted to watch the baseball game, but the TV did not get half of the channels. I called the front desk and they said all of the TV's were having the same issue. At breakfast I asked my colleague, and he said he was able to get the game. I was not impressed, or even satisfied by this hotel. If your searching....keep looking.

I only selected this hotel because everything in NYC was $100 or more per night. Really cute place... must visit rooftop bar/restaurant because the views are as good as it gets. Room was large, as was bathroom - staff was nice and extra helpful. Not hard to get into city by subway - a 10 min walk to station, or they provide transportation on the hour. Yay!

Room Tip: Ask for upgrade, it can't hurt

First beware that the hotel offers no parking and the neighborhood is questionable at best. Dirty and not quaint. The check in was smooth but the front desk was quite rude and stiff. The room was small and the drywall had holes in them. This was a superior deluke room.The room we requested via hotels dot com was to be a room with a view of the nyc skyline. The hotel stated that this was the room we requested and booked which overlooked the 5 car parking lot. A wedding was taking place the same day we checked in and I am sure our room was given away. We are currently still here and cannot wait to check out tomorrow.
