Tryp is new, stylish, trendy and visually appealing. The staff is polite and definitely works very hard to provide excellent customer service. Unfortunately – and in spite of all that, this hotel has serious structural noise problems due to hardwood flooring, thin walls, and doors that slam shut. In my room, I also noticed a weird, mournful, howling noise that envelopes the room from time to time. What’s up with that? Wind? Perhaps it’s the spirits of former hotel guests who have died from lack of a sound restful sleep?
On the first night, I could hear each and every riveting detail of my neighbor’s midnight phone call to a woman who had apparently, and quite wisely, rebuffed his earlier advances. On the second night of my stay – at 1:00AM, my floor was invaded by a group of what sounded like noisy high school or college students who spent a good half hour crisscrossing between their rooms, talking loudly, slamming doors, etc. I actually don’t begrudge their enthusiasm at visiting NYC. (At their age, I behaved the same way.) But, I don’t want to hear every detail and every sound courtesy of the shoddy construction of the hotel. After about 30 minutes of this raucous merriment, I called the front desk. To his credit, the manager immediately came up to our floor and laid down the law to the unruly guests. Things quieted down for the rest of the night.
It’s 10:21PM of night #3 as I write this review. The neighbors are restless and the genuinely responsive manager is again talking with them. Tomorrow morning, I intend to leave bright and early. Given the price that I paid ($165 per night through Travelzoo), this NYC-based hotel is a clean, stylish (albeit really, really noisy) option for one or two nights. After that... Well, let’s just say that, in 9 hours and 39 minutes, I’ll be checking out and then rapidly walking away and towards a quieter place.
