Love the location, but can hear everything.
Got there 30 early and since our room was not ready we paid $20 to upgrade the room with a view of union square and supposedly more space. Not sure what my original room size would of been but this one was not that spacious. I love the original design of the hotel, glad they are still original but the downside about this is that you can hear the rooms next to you. You can also hear the hallways so hot woken up by the staff outside, a crying baby and the event at Union Square. I guess it's the price you pay. The best part was the bed, it was super comfortable.
