Well, I hate to complain about anything regarding our trip to NYC. The hotel was in such a nice location near Central Park and easy walking distance to Times Square, theaters and "30 Rock". We stayed at another hotel the last time we were in NYC and I found this location much better with easy access to highly ranking eateries. My complaint has to do with the room - we had a handicap room and really have no idea what the rooms are like that are not handicap access. We really found it nearly impossible to unpack... very little room for hanging items up or drawers for putting items in. We traveled with our teenager who had a lumpy pull-out couch. No privacy between the main bed and the pull out couch ... absolutely none. The TV could rotate to be watched either from the couch or the bed. The bathroom had little to no counter space to put belongings (seriously ... it was impossible to unpack). It was a bit disconcerting having the shower open to the rest of the room as we weren't sure if the water would stay near the shower or soak the rest of the bathroom, wetting any bags or clothing that might have been in the bathroom on the floor (teenager with us remember). The floor stayed dry. I don't think I'll be booking here again -- it wasn't terrible but I think there must be better. I really want to blame it on the fact that it was a handicap room... I assume handicapped individuals like to hang up their clothes and have privacy from the fold out couch though so I would be cautious booking the room if you bring family. The bathroom would have been ideal for wheelchair access.
Staff was more than pleasant. A bit crowded with many milling around in wait for the burger joint and Norma's. Queues also for checking in an out so it seemed tight moving in and out of the hotel. The Knave (bar) was great but seating was minimal and the blustery weather made it seem a bit cool near the doors.
It wasn't an awful place... just non-plussed I guess.
