I stayed at this hotel from 2/24/07 to 2/27/07 (39th floor) while attending a national education conference. When I first arrived at about 2pm (2/24), my room and that of my colleague’s were not available for check in. Check in time is officially 3pm and given that they were hosting at least one large conference, I guess this could happen. They did store our luggage for free (the normal cost is $3.50/item stored). Also, when the time came for check in, we had some of the best service I have seen and experienced. The staff at check in and throughout my stay in every area of the hotel (including the restaurants and housekeeping), were amazing. I want to also want to mention Arnold (do not know his last name) who provided us with some of the best check-in service I ever experienced.
This hotel is located within walking distance (about 15 or so minutes) from Times Square. Also, great amenities such as restaurants, ice cream and chocolate (yes, ladies, chocolate) store, and a grocery store are within two blocks.
In terms of the room, I had a king room, which met the expectations for the price of the room. Another note especially for the ladies is that the bathroom lacked vanity space. I mean, very little space, some of which is too close for comfort to the toilet. I actually resorted to spreading a towel on the bathroom floor to store my toiletries while using them. I would rather do this than have my stuff land in the latrine, which would be quite gross. When they were not in use, I kept toiletries in my suitcase. I usually store these on the vanity during my other hotel experiences. My colleague had similar vanity space issues in her room.
On another note, I have to wonder when these hotels – especially these high-priced properties – will update their tv sets. The old crappy Phillips tubes just don’t it for me and is an insult at this price point. Also, be warned about the price of their internet service. It is $9.95/day (billing period is from 12pm); however, while in the lobby, I also noticed a $9.95/hr price tag. Crazy.
Still, I had a very pleasant stay and would stay there again.
