I have stayed here twice, mostly because the deals are good for superior or deluxe rooms. The regular rooms are the size of shoe boxes. Don't do it.
Arriving at the hotel is a demeaning experience. As you struggle to schlepp your luggage out of the cab into the street and onto the curb, the doormen watch with impassive indifference. Then - and this has now happened twice - they trot out the ritual, corporate speak: 'Need any help with your bags, sir?' Box ticked. So now you are supposed to hand over a tip, having done the work yourself. Very New York.
The lobby remains lovely, though now marred by a Starbucks, and mobs people lining up to register. Reception staff are unfailingly kind and polite, however.
Overall, it's an acceptable, mass market hotel, with a few residual echoes of better days.
