Not perfect but definetely a great hotel, very well located mid-town. You can wall to many many great places. Few minutes away from the metro station. Accessible by bus from airports. The Bryant park is incredible....
Highly recommended if you wish to visit NYC for 3 or 4 days.
Comments on trip advisor are very accurate!
+ location; design of hotel/rooms; wine and cheese party on the 2nd floor (with a special thank to the young lady assisting guests); nice roof top bar (when not full; go when it is closed!)
- rooms are very noisy; air conditioning is noisy too; breakfast is very good but always the same; some staff is friendly, some other less....
The big issue is internet. It does not work in certain rooms (xxx6? Facing the Library?). It is not acceptable. You cannot expect guests to pay +350USD a night and sit in the corridor looking for the wifi signal. This problem is not new (see many other comments).
