Got a good early booker rate for a Hudson Queen Suite with your own private terrace when I booked in April. Seemed nice to have some outdoor space when visiting New York during the summer. The price was only just above 100$ more than for a regular room for three nights.
But apparently there was a bit of a problem calling the room a suite so some time after we booked the website changed the name and just called it a Deluxe room. When arriving we noticed why, size-wise I'm guessing the regular rooms are not much smaller and in a suite you at least expect a livingroom area and a more spacious feel. This room (201) was as small as your average New York hotel room and changing the description seemed appropriate, although It would've been better not calling it a suite from the start.
The terrace of course was quite nice, but it was towards the back yard and not much sun reached it until later in the afternoon since it was on the second floor. I've read reviews of people having views of the Empire State Building, but maybe those we're not from the Hudson Queen Deluxe in particular? I'm not sure if they changed the description to "garden view" after I booked or if it was there from the start, but If I had known I probably would've just a booked regular room with chances of a better view.
Still, the room was beautiful. Great bed, okay pillows and wonderfully designed bathroom with ℅ Bigelow bath products. Nice to stay in a new hotel that really feels new.
Being slightly disappointed with the size of the room, it not being a suite when paying for a suite, and the terrace not facing the street was not a big letdown when the interior and feel of this hotel was so good in every other way. Location just perfect. Stayed at the Mondrian in Soho earlier this year and I really don't like the hustle and bustle of the Soho streets close to that hotel. Here you're in a calm setting, just by 6th Avenue and a lot of good breakfast spots. Also you're just a few blocks from Union Square and not far from Washington Square Park. The Jade Hotel has probably the best location for any hotel I've stayed at in New York if you really like the downtown brownstone feel.
Front desk staff and bell boy were kind and helpful and If I get this good deal again, we'll probably stay here next time. But in a regular room I'm guessing.
