This was a good, inexpensive place stay for an overnight in the Times Square/Broadway district. Location was PERFECT. Front desk staff was very attentive and professional. The lobby was beautifully decorated in an art-deco motif, clean and well maintained. The car valet was very helpful and courteous.
We were in one of their older rooms on the 8th floor, presumably based on the rate we got. The room was nice, with windows that opened, which we loved. Everything was clean. The bed was quite firm, but we slept well. The room could use new carpet and a paint job or new wall paper. Both were past their prime. The bathroom was nice.
The hallways could have been beautiful, but were depressing instead. They need to improve their lighting and repaint the trim on all the doors (both elevators & rooms). This place has so much potential, but they need to put a little more effort into the place. The lighting and paint in the hallways would be a huge improvement with little investment (the fluorescent bulbs are not doing the job). I don't know if all the floors look the same or not. I'm under the impression that they are renovating parts of the hotel, so perhaps things are looking up.
