I checked in with a group of girls March 20th and we almost instantly were regretting our hotel choice for our 5 day trip. The clerk at front desk was so nice to us when we were checking in we thought we would give the hotel a chance. After walking around (during the day) we did not feel safe at all. When we came back from our dinner at night a homeless man told us to be very careful and to not stay around this area for long (that was definitely an eye opener, we checked out the next day).
I left a watch my dad had given me (even knew the exact spot I left it) but when I called the person who answered told me nothing was there and then transferred me to the housekeeping department (where I had to leave a message). I called back and explained that I was not able to reach anyone, she told me she would speak to them directly and give me a call back. I found it odd that she didn't ask me what it looked like so I tried to describe it anyways. Needless to say "they didn't see anything there" I am convinced someone took my watch as I completely stripped my luggage and my friend's luggage and we could not find anything. There are pictures of me wearing it that evening so clearly I brought it back to the hotel.
The rooms are tiny and definitely not insulated well. All night we could hear the street noise and the people next door. The bathroom kept making a strange noise every few minutes, we could hear it even with the door closed!
Unless you absolutely need to I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, especially if you wanted to stay in Union Square.
