Average value hotel
Posted 25-Feb-2013 on Hotels
Hotel located in a relatively sparse neighborhood as far as entertainment and transportation goes, 15 walk to nearest subway station (Central Park). Rooms were moderately clean (bed was excellent) but it was clear someone had been smoking there previously. No windows.
Free breakfast was just OK. I didn't try out the fitness center or business centers. From my room, the (free) wifi was very spotty, but worked OK in the lobby areas.
Staff was very friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions for places to visit in the area. One thing i don't get is the need to "theme" the hotel. It's got lots of nautical decorations and the staff dress up like sailors, yet there are also Greek statutes around and the cafe was called "Athena" or something like that. It's not a big deal, but just kind of odd.
