We lived there 6 nights the end of June 2012. As we were so understanding about "colonial" atmosphere:
we can't sleep with AC, while a very hot weather,'cause too old AC fan did a crazy noising sound.
we can't keep open the window 'cause strong cooking smell coming from outside.
As They were not so understanding when I smoked a cigarette on the room toilet, while I did it beside opened toilet window and keeping the door between toilet and room well closed.
They applied a 200usd fine on my room bill.
What made me more angry is they shot and shown me a photo of my toilet waste bin, where I left a empty pack of cigarettes, "to proof my guilty" and get the 200USD fine.
I felt my privacy so violated! What matter you what I place in my garbage?
In a friendly relationship just needed they called me to tell "please don't smoke", not arranging a "crime-scene" report with photo.
Then I've to say the hotel has a very good position in Times Square, the look of common spaces is nice, the staff is so kind and the service too. The breakfast and happy-hours buffet are a sweet surprise. These qualities make the hotel different than big hotels as Hilton or Sheraton or Westin, but if you are a smoker who needs a cigarette to go toilet (all the smokers know what I mean), beware of your waste bin!
