1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel was in the middle of renovations. It was dirty and in terrible condition. The service was even worse. I booked the room online and when I arrived they said they didn’t have me listed on their computer. After some time I was told it was a systems issue that was the cause of the problem but it would be fixed soon. It was too early to check in so I left my bags and came back after the 4pm check in time. The new front desk employee once again couldn’t find me in the system even though I provided him with all my info including the confirmation #. I had to wait in the lobby for 30 mins while he helped all the other arriving guests and had no other employees around to assist him. The room was small, which is expected in NY, but also dirty. It was loud could hear everyone in the neighboring rooms and hallways. This place was a dump. Don’t bother.
