“Room size is for 1 person”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

The location is good, close to the river and not so much noise. Staff is friendly and helpful. But the rooms are too small and it feels crowded it is possible to hear what people talk in the adjoining rooms.

Great location but the elevators are either small and musty or small and or small and over bleached. They use the same elevator that the customers use for trash also be prepared to wait about 5-10 minutes. The shower is very small so leave the curtain open or let your butt rub against the shower curtain .
The beds are comfortable. Also the wifi is in the so called lobby I don't consider it a lobby more of a small room.
So if read the other reviews they go more in depth and almost are all true

Room Tip: Don't turn the ac on high it gets too cold

We were so excited to book a "suite" with 2 rooms and bathroom, A/C, Wifi in our old UWS neighborhood, and have NEVER been SO let down by a hotel. The location and advertisement were the only good things about it. It was HOT, more like a SRO or hostel than a "hotel," the beds were soft, I wouldn't even undo the covers. The wifi only works in one room downstairs that has no couch, just metal chairs to sit on. I don't know how this got one star even. I have NEVER left a hotel and NOT stayed there, but that is what we did here. Awful!

Debbie R, Owner at Riverside Tower Hotel, responded to this review, August 22, 2013
You had new air conditioners in each of the rooms of your suite. You just did not know how to turn them on. Your beds were also new. We have just completed a renovation of rooms. Other guests that wrote reviews totally disagree with you. You should have gone to the Waldorf Astoria where you could get what you want for $500 a night.

Great location within walking distance to everything you would need! We had a pretty small room, which was expected, but very clean and well maintained. We were expecting to be disappointed because of previous reviews and photos but they must have updated the rooms/amenities because we were pleasantly surprised! The only downside was the somewhat rickety elevator that was very slow but apart from that everything was great! Friendly, helpful staff and great value!

Rooms are too small. but nice view of the Hudson River from the window. No wifi in the rooms but only in the lobby. The receptionnists are very kind. The location is very good (5 subway stops and you're in Time Square).
