First, this is a top notch boutique hotel that offers that unique New York City experience. The rooms are phenomenal and the entire hotel will be phenomenal when they have their grand opening. No, the bar, restaurant, and elevator are not up and running yet, but they are very forthcoming with that information. If the hotel had all of its 4 star amenities running, we would not have stolen the room for $225! Do you all realize how much hotels of this caliber cost, steps from Times Square?? And news flash, the rooms are a great size. I have stayed in boutique hotels in NYC that have cost twice as much and the double bed took up the entire room and the bathroom was a tiny shower stall and toilet. Our room had a queen size bed and a rollaway and we still had room to walk around. You had better be chummy with your roomates, though, because the shower and sink are separated from the rest of the room by a curtain. I felt this was a plus because it allowed for a huge shower. My daughter did have a great idea that the shower should have privacy glass or a two-way mirror, but it was definitely a cool set-up. The toilet was located in its own watercloset. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and very nicely soundproofed. Been there, done that with paper thin New York walls. The bed and linens were dreamy.
I was traveling with my 12 y/o and 10 y/o daughters. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. They allowed us to check-in early and within moments of our entering the room, housekeeping appeared with the rollaway bed we requested via email and a stack of extra towels. The staff always took an interest in the girls and engaged them in conversation about their day. The service was truly of a personal and friendly nature that I have rarely experienced outside of the Caribbean.
This hotel is quite a find. And as they say, timing is everything. I was able to give my girls a unique and clean NYC experience without further breaking our bank. (We had already laid out over $700 for Wicked tickets). I would be hard pressed not to come back here on my next visit even when the price tag does match its scale. Steal it while you can, their grand opening is supposed to be in September. BTW, the guest elevator was up and running when we left.
