Don;t be scared of the self checkin on ground floor-there are staff available and anyone who books anythiong online will feel comfortable at the kiosk. I did not use the robot for storing of luggage but was happy to know that service was available should I need it in the future. Spent 2 nights here for a conference at the Javits-great location for a quick walk there in the am after a free muffin and coffee offered in the restaurant area. The seating was a bit strange with asian style floor seats and tables that fodl down at night to become a dance floor. But once I say the eceonimical use of space it makes sense. I had the better of the two rooms we booked just due to space. Yes, the beds are motorized to fold up like a fouton for space and yes this makes them a bit still but overall I didnt spend much time there and slept just fine. The view was great, mission control staff (Yosef) called my cell when he didnt have an asnwer for me right away on something-that was amazing follow-thru! Ground control was helpful at check in and when we left for the town at night-helped us with direction and suggestions and were overall great customer service! Did the club saturday night late. Decided to stop and ask the staff there a few questions and they were friendly and efficient but never made us feel rushed. And finally the gallary on each floor has water, coffee, fridge/micro to share. While the amenities were good, the floor was sticky-gruby guests spilling stuff can't be avoided but a mop would have been nice there.
So overall-location was excellent-quick walk to Javits and to TImes Square. Easy availability of cabs and the staff were the best I have yet to meet on my frequent NYC trips. Younger perhaps and a bit more hip than some might like but I was pleased. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are open-I dont recommend sharing a room unless you are close :) Overall I can't wait to stay there again and for the price-excellent!
