Our stay here was okay- but it didn't start off well. We arrived late, ready to just crawl into bed... after a long day of travelling. I paid for the rooms in full before getting there on my MC(and paid off the bill prior to), and unfortunately forgot that credit card at home!
So when we got there, i gave him my visa for incidentals etc... They wouldn't accept it. He kept asking me for the other card, and I kept telling him I dont have it. He just shrugged and said "I cant give you your room then". He tried to give me some bull that they wouldn't get paid if he doesn't "swipe" the actual card"... Come on! Its 2012!
Luckily, after hours of phone calls, I was able to get a friend to transfer some $$... The hotel would not refund me immediately-- and so by the first night, we had paid for our rooms twice ($600x2)
It's been two weeks since the incident, and I still have yet to receive a full refund to my MC.
Besides that- the room was okay. The was a very noticeable stain on our comforter the first night, but I was too tired to care. It's evident that their cleaning staff don't have a "keen attention to detail", as I noticed little hairs on the sheets too.
On a positive note, the breakfast was great. We slept well, and the bathrooms were great. The view of the Manhattan Bridge was stunning as well. Hotel was close to the metro, making it easy to move around. (Honestly, if you can grasp the metro in NYC, you can stay anywhere in the city... don't pay extras for Times Square if you don't have to! Taxis are super cheap as well. about 8$ from Brooklyn Bridge to Midtown.)
