4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Our room was comfortably sized and had 2 queen beds, which was very helpful - and rare in NYC - for two friends traveling together. The room had a newly updated bathroom and sweet kitchenette. Great area for walking. Close to Grand Central Station and the East River greenway.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family, Business traveller
Disliked: Cleanliness
Walls are paper thin, you can hear everything making it hard to rest. The bed sheets were uncomfortable, room sizes are okay. Our room smelled of smoke when we entered and had to open the windows. Location is great for what we needed.

2/5 Poor

Business traveller, Travelled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This properly should not be considered a 4 star. It has no amenities like decent soaps, slippers, robes, etc. The room is bland at best. The side chair was stained. The air con wasn’t turned on and it was an inferno in the room making it difficult to sleep. They finally turned it on but the room stayed 76F regardless. You pay a property/resort fee on top of the already overpriced room cost. $40USD gets you nothing - they say they have a conference space but you can’t work there. It’s just a computer in the main lobby which is extremely noisy when you have people eating pizza and watching television. So that was useless. Then they charge you for the gym which should already be included in the room price and I’m not exactly sure what this resort fee gets you other than aggravation for not getting anything for your money. I asked for a hairdryer with a nozzle to protect my hair because the grill on the dryer was exposed and I was repeatedly told, sorry can’t help you. There’s an old coffee maker that makes horrible coffee, no tea available. No kettle unless you ask for it. For this price, this place should have been much better. I have stayed here before years ago and it has declined significantly. I would avoid this property. It’s not a 4 star hotel. There are better hotels in the area I’ve stayed at. I stayed here as it was a VIP hotel - not worth it.
