    The original room I was given was a tiny interior facing room. Thankfully they were able to move me to a room facing Lincoln Crnter. The room was fine, but no luggage rack to set my bag on. Staff were all very friendly and helpful

    The room was very small and old, but its location was great. The staff was nice.

    This was a last minute decision for me to stay when attending the opera. What a great decision it was! So easy to valet park (though not cheap, couldn't beat the ease of it), so convenient to restaurants prior to the show and Lincoln Center literally across the street. Room and hotel was clean, nice (room was smaller, European type, typical for a big city). Mostly, EVERYONE was so nice! From the parking attendants to the door people, to the front desk. It was such a pleasure. The only amenity I feel was missing in the room (and this could be an easy fix...) a coffee maker!

    Dissatisfied Customer

    I was very happy that this hotel was in walking distance to the Metropolitan Opera . I was very disappointed with the appearance of the hotel room. The wall paper and carpeting dark geometric orange and brown colors figures that made the room smaller and claustrophobic Room was too small for 2 beds. There was no functioning closet. Closet bar was so high we were unable to hang clothing and extremely small.. The closet did not have a door.There was a dark brown curtain hanging instead of a door. The room was so noisy from street noises. Just not happy with room appearance.Also price of room was much higher than quoted.
