Ok. Here it is. The night before leaving for NYC we read the reviews of this hotel and were a little concerned as we read many more negative things about it then positive. When we arrived at the hotel we were instructed to bring our car to the parking garage at the bottom of the building which ended up costing us an additional $106 dollars for 2 days (48 hours). That would have been nice to know in advance. When we checked in at 4 we were told that our room on the 18-20th floor was not ready but they would give us a room on the 15th floor, and add free wifi ( I will find out on my next bank statement if I was charged for it or not). The room was tiny!!!!! The bathroom couldn't hold two people, however it felt like a small manhattan apt! The negatives about this hotel: the bed skirts covering the box spring were filthy and looked like they had not been changed in ages. There was an empty pop bottle behind the night stand. There is no breakfast included in the $700/ 2 nights charge, they could have thrown in some muffins or something. Positives about this hotel: friendly staff: both gentlemen that helped us with our bags ( the man with the moustache and the young fellow with the three daughters!!) we're awesome and made us feel welcome! The men at the cafe were so kind and friendly when we ordered our son some cereal!
The only thing I would advise people before booking a stay at this hotel would be, if you are looking for the plaza; go to the plaza. If you don't have the money to cough up for this hotel; don't stay in manhattan!
