“Not a good first experience of a New York hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2004

This was our first trip to New York and we entered this dark, dismal hotel - it seemed quite small. Our bedroom had just one small double bed and the air conditioning didn't work. The cost of a breakfast was horrendous. The bathroom was awful - so old fashioned and difficult to reach the loo roll from the toilet!!!! We liked the location though but would never go back to this hotel. Found the staff to be unhelpful and quite snooty. It struck us as being just like a very old London hotel.
