ROOM - It is true that the rooms are small but clean and cozy. Our luggages barely fit the space beside the bed. The bed is fairly comfortable. Only a glass sliding door separates the bathroom and the bedroom. There is almost no privacy as you can see everything and I mean everything. If you are a couple, this may not be a big deal. Otherwise, toilets for guests are available in the viewing deck/roof top and the basement so that solves the problem.
LOCATION - The hotel is a 5 minute-walk from the Grand Central Station. A little bit further is Broadway Ave. Taxis often wait outside the hotel entrance. Supermarkets and restaurants can be found in the area. It’s so convenient my partner and I couldn’t complain. We could even come back to the hotel several times to drop off things we bought or freshen up for dinner.
SERVICE – Check in/out is fast and hassle free. They have a help desk for tourists which is a plus especially for first timers in New York. The bar on the ground floor is worth trying. I just wish they serve warm drinks especially when it’s minus 4 degrees celsius outside.
