walking in, this place is beautiful! Even better, the staff was great, from the valet to the bellman, to the front desk staff, everyone was so nice and accommodating.
We arrived early in the morning so we had the bellman store our stuff for the day. We got a call at 2 pm that our room was ready. We got to the hotel and went up to our room. Here is why it is 3 stars. The room was tiny, extremely tiny. I could have dealt with that. my issue was the bathroom, there was no room to move, at all. I understand it is NYC, but we have stayed many places there and have no experienced a room so small! It was beautiful, but just wasn't working for us. I was going to try to just suck it up, but when I saw the earplugs, I knew this was going to be a problem, as I am already a light sleeper.
I headed down to the front desk and asked if they could cancel my reservation. I was happily surprised that they said yes! I thought that was just great that they were good about cancelling the room. I told them that I was heading to a different Marriott. That is when they told me that they are not technically a Marriott property. I had never really realized that previously.
If you want the old NYC feel, this is the hotel for you. For me, I need space :-0
