We stayed here for a long weekend in early October. First room they presented felt way too small and claustrophobic. All it took was a phone call to the front desk and luckily they had and were more than happy to move us to a lovely room with sitting area, plenty of space. Front desk and concierge staff are friendly and helpful, service is great, loved Moo (food and cocktails were both excellent) and especially liked the location. It felt more secluded, a little off the hustle bustle path yet still a short walk to all the action plus the subway. A nice respite in a city for sure. Decor is modern/classic, loads of taupes and bold use of black and darker neutrals, liked that too. Only complaint would be the lobby which is too small (well done, but too small) and they seem to have a habit of keeping the huge luggage carriers in the space as well which feels very out of place and crowded. In fairness, they were doing some exterior repairs so perhaps they temporarily lost that storage? It seemed so glaring that it must have not been intentional. Lobby doesn't make you want to linger for long but didn't bother us as we were on the go anyway. Will be happy to return and have reservations for next spring when our son graduates! Great boutique hotel.
