We stay here because it's across the street from Lincoln Center. But I'm increasing annoyed each time we come. Our room on the 11th floor is so hot that we have the windows wide open during a snowstorm--apparently a feature of many 10th and 11th floor rooms, from discussion with other guests in the elevator! And while the hotel is not overpriced, they charge you extras at every turn: $12/day for WiFi, with separate charge for each device--ie, you need two subscriptions if you have laptop and tablet. In-room coffeemaker, but you get charged $3.50 for each K-cup! The shower requires an engineering degree and if you use the handheld, you still get a constant cold drip from the overhead, which you can't avoid because only half the stall is glassed in, with no shower curtain. Despite this, staff are very helpful and courteous. Rooms were clean--and if you're in town for Lincoln Center, location can't be beat.
