On arrival we were pleasantly surprised how atmospheric the main reception and public areas were. They reminded me of something I could visualise in The Arabian Knights. The sun terrace on floor 15 was also a nice haven of relaxation in this otherwise hot and bustling city.
As for the rest of the hotel I was less sure. The staff were pleasant enough and tried to be helpful, supplying a kettle for our room upon request. We were under the impression that we had ordered a room with complimentary drinks and snacks, but were assured this was not the case. We were a little happier when given a $35 credit, until two orange juices immediately stung us for thirteen of our dollars. We abandoned any notion of our hotel being able to supply us with any viable refreshment, but we're not perturbed as there must have been literarily hundreds of places to eat within a stones throw of our stay.
Although hardly a major concern, the room corridors, low lit and with an interesting, grey-green colour scheme were like something from a prison documentary. The room was smaller than even I had bargained for, but everything was well placed, the air con worked well and the bed surprisingly was comfortable. We were able to have a good sleep, which we were not expecting.
Our four day stay was adequate as Hudson's is well placed between 8th and 9th and on 57th Street, handy for lots of attractions. Apart from the main lobby and bar area, there was no character to this hotel and I found the staff to be "corporately polite" rather than be genuinely friendly and helpful.
