My wife and I stayed here for one night after returning to NYC for a cruise. We normally stay at The Michelangelo but I wanted to give another hotel a try. I regret that this hotel is not as good, nor worth the price, of several others at which we have recently stayed. Although it wasn't "bad", I won't stay here again, simply because there are better, similarly priced and located hotels.
We found the lobby small, narrow and cramped, although nicely appointed. The concierge and front desk staff were more aloof than friendly, although they were professional and efficient. The elevators are old, very small, and slow.
The hotel itself is rather narrow, so the upstairs hallways are short, dark, and narrow. The room door-locks were very modern - you need only place your key near the flat sensor to open the lock - a nice touch. The furnishings in our one-room suite were older but serviceable. There were very modern fixtures in the bathroom and mini-bar area and the TV's were flat screens of good quality.
The complementary continental breakfast in the attached Abboccato Restorante was decent - good coffee, fresh fruits, bagels, muffins, and breads. The service was average and unenthusiastic.
It isn't a bad place to stay, just that I have stayed at better for the same price or less, that are more modern, friendly, and slightly larger.
