    Great location, helpful staff and clean . On the down side the room was so hot even in November so had to put AC on but that was so noisy. Room was very clean but in need of a refurb. It would be great if a coffee maker it kettle could be available

    Amazing Experience

    Very well located hotel, just opposite Lincoln Center, near the west of Central Park and to two subway stations, Columbus Circle and 66st Lincoln Center. It has a variety of restaurants around it: Starbucks, PJ Clarke's, The Smith, anyway. And has a Duane Reade underneath and is close to The Shops market. The Hotel looks a bit old but has been refurbished. And most of NY hotels looks like this. The lobby and mezzanine are very beautiful. The service was very cordial and friendly and you are entitled to two bottles of water per night. The room is cozy, spacious, always tidy and clean. But the lighting is a bit dim. It's worth asking to be facing Lincoln Center and above 2nd floor. Some guests complained about the noise of the air conditioner, but I didn't have this problem even on the first floor. They charge $ 25 Resort fee. I would definitely stay at the Hotel again.
