the room was large which is great for NY, we had two double beds which was strange, was expecting one large double as we're a couple. the bed was comfortable, slept well, did get some noise from outside. don't expect a view as you wont get one, floors too low for the hotel rooms-rest of hotel for business/apartments. room contemporary but too plain, shower room looked very classy. we got a good deal for the room months in advance on travel republic. agree with a previous comment that the room was too dark especially the bathroom. the shower door was a bad design, and a heated towel rail OUTSIDE the large shower cubicle would be better.
the location is nice but being wall street very business orientated with some meetings going on behind the service desk in the lobby. a female member of staff at the lobby desk was too busy looking at personal sites on the laptop to make eye contact when i had a query, i waited until she looked at me, made us feel if we were in 'suits' we'd have been treated more favorably.
the domestic staff were actually the most friendly and the room cleanliness was excellent. complimentary soft drinks and snacks was a nice touch, but no tea/coffee facility in the room.
would recommend the cocktails in the bar, a nice treat.
