We booked this hotel based mainly on it's proximity to Penn Station (flying in from Australia and travelling on Amtrak train next day) and were not disappointed. It is virtually across the road under Madison Square Garden (the station that is). Prime position. The lobby looked spectacular but we were disappointed when we arrived in our room (2420). I don't think there was any soundproofing on the windows - you could hear a lot of traffic noise - a sign on the bedside table advises there are earplugs in the drawer (no joke). Bathroom was small, shower base dangerous with a huge dip from the floor tiles to the drain hole. Bathroom door opened back onto a heater which meant it never stayed fully open and collisions with the bedside table situated opposite occurred as you bumped off the door. Not good when you're jetlagged. While there appeared to be a kitchenette - the fridge was not turned on and there was no coffee/tea supplies - confused. Service by staff was terrific - no complaints there. Would stay again solely on location - but would not stay any longer than overnight.
