On the upside: excellent location in Chelsea near 8th Avenue and subway. Most staff is nice and helpful.
Slight reductions for badly designed fixtures in our room. We took a suite, for 3 adults. Space was good, but the bathroom is just as badly designed and built as one can imagine. Enough space, but a tiny toilet where a person with legs and knees can hardly sit down, not to mention stand up. No need for such stingy space allocation. The bathtub is black... A really bad idea in a hotel room. The shower is in the main space of the bathroom, without curtain or even a floor separation, so that one can't use it without irrigating everything. Not to mention the insufficient drainage: the water will tend to spread to the bedroom, since the gradient is insufficient to motivate water to go for the hole where it should go. No towel hangers near the wash stand either. Enough already?
From looking into some other rooms we got the impression that normal rooms are small but adequate. This may be an ideal place for single travelers.
