If you hate those hotels where you walk for miles through vast lobbies to get to your room, try this one. Small, friendly, but still in a convenient location near Union Square, I loved this place. I stayed 7 nights on a business trip. Wi-fi free and never a problem, great little bar, loved the free early morning tea and coffee from 5am (great if you're on a more easterly time schedule) and the free wine in the evening even more. I asked for a quiet room and it was, very. What's more, the window opened, yippee! I detest air con, so no problems for me. My room was quite spacious by UK standards for this class of hotel, and I didn't think the furnishings or bathroom particularly poor either. Then again I wasn't spending much time there awake. I adored the green option of refusing housekeeping in exchange for a voucher to spend in the bar - who needs clean towels and sheets every day if they shower?
