First off, this is a nice hotel, and was built in the last couple of years. The staff were friendly and it is in a nice location in downtown Manhattan central to all including subways, Wall St, Battery Park, etc. The rooms were in very good condition, and somehow they manage to fit alot of things in the room including a long desk, TV, coffee maker, and furniture to hang your clothes in.
The main negative about the hotel was its size.. The guest rooms were small and the hallways were really small. The bed was a king sized bed but was shorter than a typical king sized bed. I'm 6'3" and my feet were past the edge of the bed.
The bathroom was a decent size given the overall size of the guest room, and there was a good sized shower stall within it.
There are probably about only 8-10 rooms per floor, but since it is 44 stories high and only 3 elevators, the wait for elevators can be painful. And if you are on a lower floor, there is a good chance you are taking the stairs down. It also doesnt help that the lobby is on the 2nd floor and the same elevators are used to to to the guest floors that are used to go from the ground level to the lobby on the 2nd floor.
Also - the noise level was a little too loud for me. I had a corner room, and still heard alot of doors shutting, people moving suitcases around in the hallway and alot of outside noise even though I was in a room on a high floor (thankfully, the construction going on down at the street stopped at 11-11:30 pm. Not sure I could have handled the jackhammer noise if it lasted longer). This is all a little surprising given that the hotel is fairly new.
I live in NYC and haven't seen the size of more than one or two hotel rooms, but I was taken back by the smallness of the main areas of the hotel. If you are a solo traveler this hotel will do, but if you are traveling with anyone else, things can get very tight.
