First i will start with the good parts, the location(maybe the best location in nyc), hotel and amenities, free coffee and water are very well, but the management style of the hotel is very poor. We made our booking to the hotel at January 10 months before the stay, I informed the hotel twice prior to our arrival about our late check-in, booking com people have also contacted the hotel and called me saying that it is ok for late check out, at the 9th night we came to hotel at midnight after a long flight and we are told that hotel is overbooked and we will be transferred to another hotel belongs to same group and front dest said we will pay nothing to the hotel that we transferred and our first night will be free of charge we are not pleased with the inconvenience after a very long trip that we planed for a long time but we said ok, next day at the other hotel they charged us for the night despite our refusal to pay, they said we have to pay and handle the situation with Jewel and if not paid we will not be check out, we paid helpless and go to the Jewel, there was a different one in the front dest and said we have to pay full charge, we gone mad after this behavior and explained the situation again and again, we argued and finally she said they are ok for free of charge first night, be careful with this hotel about their overbooking scam, after this situation i read lots of reviews on tripadvisor on similar situations
