Now, I understand why their price was slashed. I must have missed the memo. I consider myself a reasonable person. However, this hotel...at this price point is an absolute rip off. Yes, I understand NYC rooms in older buildings will be small. This was TINY...for $200 a night, discounted! At points in the room, I had to turn sideways to navigate getting through. Also, the brick wall view left much to be desired. Water streamed from the knob of the sink every time I used it. The housekeeping didn't vacuum the carpet. Considering how little carpet there was in the tiny room...Come on! They have two towers... a nice one and a crappy one. I can only assume all Expedia reservations are funneled to the crappy tower. The location was awesome...but invest a little more time to find another hotel in this area...there are plenty. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.
