After staying in Clift for several (prebooked) days we ended up with mixed feelings. On one hand there's the iconic hotel bar, which is worth a visit on its own. The rooms are spacious and have a distinct feel.
However, we grew more and more discontent with:
-quality: rooms are extremely noisy
-service: frontdesk is understaffed = long waiting times for each query
-extremely expensive. Clift easily charges double rates of the 5 stars hotels just around it. Same goes up for the food and drinks, which though claims of biogical and local sourcing, is just average
In sum, fit for short stay if the rates don't exceed that of the high end hotels around Union Square.
