My wife adn I stayed for four nights in this plastic hotel (not on Times Square but a block away) . This hotel is designed entirely to extract as much money it can - by any means possible from their unfortunate guests. The Lobby has nowhere to sit down - no chairs or anything, The bar doubles as a lounge and restaurant and acturally has a few seats. The restaurant (run by Todd English) serves very over priced food with nothing I or my wife wanted to eat. (but their a mass of good italian diners etc etc close to the hotel). Breakfast is charged by the slice of toast ,muffin or cup of coffee so you end up paying $50 for this. They tried to charge us for the free water in the room - and do not even think of printing anything out in the Business Center - $2 a page.
The hotel has a deal with the Cruise Liners that dock on the Hudson River so it is important that they give as little as they can and charge as much as possible. This hotel does not warrent its 4 Star rating and should not be included in the normally excellent Intercontinental product/brand.
