I booked two nights at this hotel blindly without even knowing the name. It was a pleasant suprise for a price that was south of $200.00. The common areas ared dated, but nice. The elevators are small and slow. Most rooms have no view. The pool is smaller than a hot tub. There is a South Beach style club on the roof which draws crowds on weekend nights. The guest rooms have been updated are are very nicely done. Small, but very nice. The hotel tries to make up on low rates by trying to sell you everything in your room. The mini bar concept on steroids. But all things considered, a very nice stay next door to Lincoln Center at a very good price. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
