  • Older travelers

    It was quiet at night and allowed for restful sleep. The room was large, clean, and the bed was comfortable, with great pillows.

    The desk and chair need updating: they are old and the chair is too low, making seating uncomfortable.

  • Single
    8.8

    The hotel was centrally located and accommodated to most of my needs. The bell staff were fantastic. The front desk staff however were for the most part rather grim and rude to the point where I preferred not to deal with them.

    I stayed only one night and attended an opera at Lincoln Center and found it a most convenient location. I look forward to repeating this stay in te very near future.

  • Older travelers

    Location was excellent for Central Park and Manhattan shopping. Good local restaurants nearby and area felt safe.

    Could not get internet to work in room - got internet access but too slow to use!!

    Our room was spacious. 5 minute walk to subway station. Concierge was very helpful. Bell staff will hold your luggage on day of departure for a small fee and they can organise a taxi to airport for you. We were departing from jfk, cost of taxi was $60.

    We had problem with our hotel room, on the 2nd night of our 5 night stay we were tranferred to another room at our request. The Management did not offer any apology and we were fully charged for our stay. We filed a formal complaint about our concerns in our room but we really did not feel that the management took us seriously. They did not make any gestures to make up for the inconvenience.

    Location

    Staff was rude!!! Especialy girl at the front desck.

  • Group of friends

    That you were able to assist with ice packs for my torn ligament on my ankle which meant I spent 24 hours in bed!

    The receptionist was very rude and unhelpful at check in.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Bed linens were nice quality and very clean as were the towels in the bath. This is the most important feature of any hotel as far as I'm concerned.

    Generally shabby and in great need of refreshing...carpets, walls, furniture were all quite worn.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Location, free wi-fi

    Bathroom very old and dated. One day they didnt do our room

  • Single

    ther is no aereation in the bathroom, no fridge

  • Single
    9.6

    Excellent location. Clean room.

    Windows not sound proof and can be only opened two inches, not enough to ventilate the room properly if desired. No refrigerator in the room.

  • Couple
    6.6

    I appreciated being in west midtown next to Columbus Circle, though I wouldn't choose that location again, maybe i'll prefear east midtown/upper east side for next time. Anyway I liked to have the chance of starting my day with an Americano coffee without getting out of my room. The dimensions of the room were decent but the bathroom was utterly small and they didn't provide for toiletries every day. The bed was comfortable and everything was generally clean.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    the hotel rooms (our room was 857) need renovations.

  • Single

    Perfect Midtown location, large comfortable room, good value for Manhattan
