    Ok hotel pin a great location.

    The location is the biggest plus. This justifies the price for otherwise a very average hotel. I wish there were some gauze curtains on the windows- otherwise you’re completely exposed should you decide to have some light in an otherwise rather dark room. There were no chargers for electronics and you have to unplug something to charge your phone. The worst was the shower- absolutely no way to figure out how to operate it - only by trial and error. Spartan is the word I’d use. But - Lincoln Center is just across the street.
