Me and my mum stayed here early in the month for 3 nights as a last minute deal with flight included. The hotel is on a relatively quiet street, not far from Times Square and Central Park.
Location was great, close enough to walk to a few of the places we wanted to go and Columbus Circle subway station is very nearby.
Room itself was pretty large, 2 double beds each. Bathroom lets it down, quite small and our toilet took an age to flush. Was clean but could definitely do with a bit of a revamp as it looks quite dated. AC was on when we came back to the room one day, which worked fine. Could also open the window a little bit to let it some air. One thing we wished we'd figured out sooner was the blackout blinds. Managed to locate and close them on the last night!!
We were on the street side on the 11th floor so traffic noise was pretty much constant but it's New York so expected. You get free WiFi but it's very intermittent, kept dropping out for me constantly.
Didn't have any problems with the elevator, our room was right next to them too and heard very little noise.
Biggest complaint would be the connecting door from our room to next doors. Either the walls are paper thin or noise travels through the door. Next door had a screaming baby and I've never known anyone to blow dry their hair for that long in my life!
Hotel held our bags on the last day as we had an evening flight, will say that the concierge staff need a little perking up! Seemed a very miserable, unwelcoming bunch particularly when we went to pick up our bags!!
Overall, an okay stay but don't think I'll stay here again.
