Location Cleanliness Restaurant organization Front desk layout
Location Room smelled, they tried to not offer our booked room type. Even after calling and confirming the day of.
Very good ambiance in lobby and also bedroom. Very nice experience during entire stay. Closer access to all main attractions & restaurants in NewYork. Value for money in major city. No hotel valet parking so need to find other valet parking nearby.
Staff was very pleasant and it was simple to extend an additional night. Cost of marketplace!! Noise was easily heard in hallway.
This location is awesome!!! Can not beat it! Room was too hot and would not cool Elevators were SLOW - seemed liked only one was working
Location was excellent. Lack of options in the neighbourhood for affordable food, unless you wish to tempt fate and eat from a cart of death on the street. Gave us some credit for our hot room. Room was hot, hot, hot. Ac could not keep up. Went down to front desk to ask for assistance. They tried to find a fan but could not( 2:30 am don't blame them). The next day we had to get maintenance up the next day and they found us a fan.
We were on the 36th floor and most of the elevators were broken during our stay. Was difficult getting to and from our room. We had to use the service elevator many times.
I liked the location, it was perfect. Near to all the main attractions of New York. For a four star hotel, it has no complimentary water or coffee in the room which most hotels got. Not much value for money.
proximity to train station, snack bar in lobby, restaurant just up from the lobby dirty bathroom floor, poor unkeep in bathroom--sloppy caulking around shower door, built-up crud around shower area, couldn't get into shower without walking directly under shower head. Worst problem was the "modern" touch light switches---couldn't leave a light on in the bathroom to see your way there in the middle of the night. Difficult to use all lights. Dark décor--depressing and dark wallpaper installed poorly--all you noticed were the seams in the wallpaper
Great access to grand central station, i.e. don't even have to go outside. Beautiful modern lobby, with dedicated elevators, so short wait times. Nice rooms, modern. Black mildew inside shower curtain. Did not swap out all towels after first evening so had to have face cloths and hand towels delivered. Maids talking in hallway while cleaning rooms early in the morning (my biggest pet peave).
I did like the location and the fast check in. Room service was nice and fast! I did not like that I got a $30 per day upgrade and the room was still real small. Got a view of the side of another. Also, no shuttle to airport. Housekeeping didn't give extra towels at checkin as requested online. Wish I hadn't upgraded!
It was my first trip to New York. I was really impressed by the staffs and everyone at Pod 39. Very efficient and valuable hotel in New York. The location is very convenience. The hotel room was comfortable for one person or two people. I'm surprised of how clean the room was. The hotel maintain the cleanliness very well. Very reasonable prices. I wish they had a small fridge.
location, honesty of one of the staff telling us not to eat there. e-mailed me one price, when I got to hotel, quoted me another price.
Great location, yes the rooms are small hence the name Pod however you're in New York, you're not really spending much time in them. The rooms are very modern and the shower is great.
Clean, compact and great for an overnight business trip You have to request an iron and ironing board ... other than that, it's fine.
It has everything you could need in a compact package! Great location! If it had a mini fridge and microwave it would be the best place to stay in NYC for the money!
Sure the room was tight but the bed was comfortable and everything worked fine in the bathroom. The location is wonderful and so is the value. I will return. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom facilities very good
Location Everything other than location
We loved the layout of the room, the cleanliness, the speed of the elevators. Even staying directly next to the elevator wasn't a problem. Staff were very nice. The glass wall separating the bathroom from the bedroom is a big problem for us. I can't think of anyone I'd be comfortable staying in this room with. If I were alone, it'd be great.
Great location, at an NYC cheap price. The room got completely dark at night. I couldn't hear much noise from the street or any noise from other rooms. The hotel itself was well kept and I felt safe. The comforter on the bed was only mostly clean, and the door to the bathroom was dirty also. You can clearly hear whatever is going on in the hallway, even when your door is closed. The bed wasn't sower comfortable.
Great shower and comfortable bed. Awesome location. Very small. Needed one more mirror and had a great place on the empty wall above the desk. Peep hole in the door had been pushed out and was filled with toilet paper. Bathroom sink was clogged up and wouldn't drain even after maintenance supposedly fixed it. Didn't have extra rolls of toilet paper and had to go to front desk to request more. Also no ice machine. Had to go downstairs to the bar and they looked at us like we were crazy when we ask them for a cup of ice.
I really enjoyed my stay at Pod39. The hotel was very nicely decorated, definitely a "trendy" hotel. I know they have many room options - I stayed in the bunk bed room which was very small and New York-like. The beds were really comfortable. I would most recommend this place for people traveling alone or with a small group (although the bigger rooms might be good for families - there is a bar/restaurant attached to the lobby, though, so keep that in mind). The price was quite good for an NYC hotel, and the location was great - I was able to walk to all the Broadway theatres as well as Koreatown near Herald Square. Also fairly close to a subway station and Grand Central. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay here again! The room was so small there was no ironing board - I didn't ask the front desk what my options were because my clothes weren't that badly wrinkled, so there may be a way to get your clothes ironed. It's not that big of a deal, really!
Location The room had no AC, complain nothing happened, opened window, I could barely sleep because of the noise from outside
The room was ok, was not too happy with my experience here. The place was a "4" star and the hallways my family and I smelled weed When I asked the valet parking to get please get my car "I was told it took 20 minutes " I waited 50 minutes and no one came to let me know my car was ready, and they knew I was wait for it.
Easy location. Noise levels from road were quite loud. You can't sit in the bar area without buying a drink, even if you are a hotel patron. I had forgotten my phone charge and the hotel staff was not helpful in providing a temporary replacement, perhaps from lost and found. Instead I was referred to an overpriced in-house gift shop trying to sell me a micro-usb cable for 15-20$. Check-in is late at 4:00 pm. Room was tiny.
Me and my girlfriend arrived to the hotel at 6pm. Check in time was 4pm but we were told we still had to wait an additional 20 minutes for the key? I would've understood if it was a computer problem but I wasn't given a reason as to why I had to wait.
The rooms are perfect a d the beds are wonderful to sleep.the tv is perfect
Location, location, location. If you plan on walking and using the subway to get around the city the hotel is perfect as a home base to come back to if need be. Don't spend your time at the bar in the lobby...pretty pricey and you can just go to a hidden gem anywhere in the city. Also no room WiFi, but free in the lobby, so not too bad.
Music at the lobby No toothpaste!
Location was perfect. My room and bathroom were very small, even cramped. I glanced in other rooms while housekeeping had them open and they were much more appropriate-sized. Perhaps my "low priced room" wasn't a bargain, but just the price of a small room.
Our room was nicely decorated and was clean. We also liked the fact that the hotel had water and coffee in the lobby. The hotel is centrally located, which made getting around the city very easy. The room was very small and it was difficult to maneuver around our one piece of luggage and each other in the bathroom. The wifi also wasn't secure.
Wifi was great and entertainment and amenities on the ground floor were amazing. I had to change rooms because of the auto noise on the Lexington Avenue facing side.
Door man was not in a service. Luggage deposit payable even in waiting for the room clearance.
Accessibility/ location, customer service No sound insulation in rooms near elevators (room near elevator was outrageously loud because of elevator mechanism and doors continuously opening and closing). They moved our room, but could be a problem if hotel is full.
Easy check in and check out - all on a computer. Nice staff, perfect location for business on the east side. My window was open the whole time and I couldn't figure out how to close it. The heating was VERY loud.
Clean and modern bathroom, plenty of room for a nyc hotel room. The purified filtered water on every floor was amazing! The terrace was lovely.
Whenever I visit NYC, I always stay at Affinia. Great hotel. Friendly staff, large clean rooms. Excellent location.
Great location and valet parking
Location was great and staff were courteous. Decor is modern. Shower was dirty on arrival with hair from prior guest. When arriving we turned on the lights and a cockroach scurried across the floor. The room was hot and The air conditioner didn't work.
Older building, recently updated. Lots of charm, yet very modern. Location wad terrific. Hotel was spotless. Pillows on bed were small.
The rooms were large and well appointed. They were clean and quiet. A bit dark decor and lighting in the lobby area.
Staff and room.
The complimentary happy hour in the lobby was a nice treat for hotel guests. Although, there seemed to be many attendees who were not hotel guests. I didn't like the smell in the hotel or my room. It smelled like pets and found out later the hotel was pet friendly - not a fan. I also didn't care for the decor in the hallways or room I stayed in. It seemed very dated and in desperate need of some modern updating. I also felt the complimentary toiletries were very disappointing and so was the $5.99 charge for printing tickets from a desk computer (labeled business center - very weak). The housekeeping service was very, very noisy each morning and the rooms weren't cleaned up to normal hotel standards.
They charge $14.95 for wifi in your room. The Lobby furniture is very old no back support. & Very saggy
Clean and spacious room The only reason why i booked this hotel is for the rooftop and you guys completly ruined my stay by closing the rooftop for a private event the ONE day i booked. Good to know that no matter how much cash you shell out youll still get beat over the head because of rich people wanting to close off a whole area of a hotel. Horriible experience.
Great location and good price. The staff was friendly. On one of the days we stayed, the entire hotel's air conditioning was out for almost 24 hours. It was humid and very hot outside and we were traveling with an infant so we decided to come back to the hotel only to find it even more hot and muggy inside. They kept telling us the problem was being fixed but it wasn't until early morning the next day that it started working again. They apologized and gave us a discount but it was a miserable night with the baby. We had to ask for extra towels 4 times one day until we finally got them. There were at least 3 large cockroaches that we had to kill in the room - I know it's New York, I used to live there, but it's still uncomfortable to find them in a hotel that's supposed to be clean.
Nice staff very helpful great experience front desk excellent would recommend highly
plenty of room the road works but that's New York
Very close to Grand Central Station and the Metro and also a good location for walking to many of the major attractions.
Friendly clean and fantastic location
Location beside central station, suite was big and had fridge and coffee maker which is essistial when u have been out shopping all day Could have drinks machine in lobby (bottle water etc)
Staff very prompt, room was not as booked but problem was dealt with very quickly. Even though we were on the 16 floor it was still very noisy
Large suite but basic and near Grand Central and perfectly adequate for a city trip. Hotel needs a makeover. No double glazing so rooms at front has lots of traffic noise. No blankets in room or spare pillows. Old and tired! We asked concierge about travel detais on the subway and he simply shrugged his shoulders and left us to find out ourselves.
Although an old hotel, everything was very clean. Poor window isolations, you have to keep the air conditioning on all the time to avoid street noizes. As everything about NYC accomodations, the prices are ridiculously high.
Simplicity Small room, but it's ok
Location Bad functioning TV, old TV models. Poor internet wi-fi.
There was hot water and that's literally about the only thing I can think of that I liked about this hotel. If you've stayed at any other Curio hotel and are thinking this will be a similar experience, I've got bad news for you: this is an awful hotel. 1. The room layout is horrible, most of the rooms face the brick wall of an adjacent building (and you can hear their external AC window units running); 2. the AC is tiny and cannot properly cool the rooms (which are VERY tiny by NYC standards); 3. The elevators are slow, bumpy, and small causing you to wait 15 minutes to catch one not full of people and luggage; 4. The room service is not up to any normal standards. They have shampoo, conditioner, and body wash dispensers in the shower which are empty and surrounded by mold and mildew -- a health nightmare; 5. NOISE: expect to hear anyone cough, sneeze, turn on a lamp, or zip up a bag from an adjacent room or any room on your floor; and 6. Poor bathroom layout -- there is NO room to put anything on the counter in the bathroom. Don't expect to get ready very easily in this hotel as there is no full-length mirror either! This should NEVER received the Curio brand from Hilton. The hotel is by far the biggest disappointment I've ever seen as a Diamond member.
Excellent Location for city break. View from room window.
the closeness to Grand central and the faclities of central New York could not be better bathrooms could do with an upgrade but a relatively minor problem
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was beautiful, rooms were very clean and more comfortable than home.
We went to NYC just before Christmas and could not have been happier with this hotel. Although our room was small, we did not spend much time in the room and therefore it did not bother us! The staff was so friendly and helpful and the location was amazing! We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to the city!
The room service prices seem a bit excessive
Location good. No facility for making tea in the rooms. The extracters in the bathrooms did not work. Complementary Tea/coffee in lobby stopped at 7am.Basic internet facility should be complementary. the bathrooms are too small.
room was shabby; breakfast personnel unfriendly.
Location was good for walking but, I was very dissappointed at how dirty smelling the lobby was. I stayed in NYC before and after a trip to the Galapagos. On the way down I stayed at a Hilton and on th way back I spent a little extra to end the holiday on a high note and chose the Intercontinental. In Asia Intercon hotels are luxurious and wonderful. The Intercon Barclay was a big dissappointment. The smell in the lobby for all 3 days was sour and foul. It reminded me of a gym locker. I hated walking through the lobby and sometimes you could smell it on the stairs before you even entered the building. Considering I paid about 100 dollars more a night then the Hilton, which was only three streets away, the room was very small and cramped. The bathroom was also very small, dirty, and the grout in the tile had not been cleaned well
Rooms are quite larger, ceilings high. Decor is modern but not colorful. Still some areas under construction
the location was good for the purpose of my business trip the bathroom was the size of a small closet with the smallest tub I have ever seen. the internet did not work for two days and on one day I had a cold water shower. Definitely not a 5 star hotel other than their prices and flower arrangement in the lobby
The staff were always helpful and the hotel was in a great location to shopping, Times Square and Grand Central Station The shower used cloth shower curtains so that by the second shower the water would wick out to the second curtain and onto the floor. Also there is no fan in the bathroom so it was a bit steamy when you got out.
it was central and close to the bus pick up for Javits centre no cafe style dining
Clean and comfortable upscale hotel with a very friendly and accommodating staff. The restaurant pricing, especially for breakfast, is out of control.
Near to Grand Central Roadside noise was too loud
Nothing. Third party booked stay then went bankrupt. No email or advance notice. Hotel receptionist extremely rude and antagonistic. Not enough decency to offer comparable rate to alleviate situation. Never again.
We loved the comfort, location, staff helpfulness, cleanliness & smooth functioning.
Great location, comfy beds Initial room was unmade, shower was clogged, but issues were rectified immediately when brought to their attention Wifi is not free
Elizabeth in housekeeping was a tremendous help in getting bedding and towels for us!!! She was pleasant while we were all very angry about the bed situation. Thank you Elizabeth! Long wait for checkin. Need more staff at front desks. I reserved a room with 2 double beds for 4 people. I called twice to confirm and reiterate that I wanted 2 double beds. At checkin I said I needed 2 double beds(this was at 1:30pm) Receptionist said yes I see that is what you requested. I was told room was not ready and they would call be about 3pm when room was ready which they did. Again, a long wait for receptionist, she gave me keys to room which had a king size bed and pull out sofabed!!! I called front desk to get a room with 2 double beds as I requested and they said they had no more and because I booked with a third party (travelocity) they could do nothing about it as rooms are not guarenteed (bed types). I am angry about this situation and will rethink ever staying at a Westin hotel and I will also rethink about using travelocity.
FYI the rooms are real real small. Didn't bother me.
only bad thing was the small rooms other than that it was good
Easy access to Grand Central and in the heart of NYC.
Hotel stay was right on point after a long day thanks
Nice efficient hotel and very conveniently located. The room was of okayish size. The attached washroom was rather awkward - can't lock the door and the wash basin was too small leading to water spilling all over the place. One day the room could not be cleaned and when we complained, the manager himself came for the apology and also offered compensating action which was very nice of him.Elevators are quick. Washroom
Very close to the subway and Grand Central Station. 24 hour luggage storage after checkout and the staff was very friendly. It is on a busy street due to the location and you can hear some traffic from the room but it wasn't too loud, especially for NYC it wasn't too bad.
The staff was excellent. Small bathrooms. Phone system not working properly.
The location is great for anyone coming from Long Island. I really like knowing that Kimpton always welcomes pets. Fire alarm battery needed to be replaced. I ended up taking it out to make the beeping stop. I told the front desk, but they didn't seem bothered. The thermostat was held to the wall with tape. It came loose and the batteries did as well. I don't know if I received awards points or not, but I'm not sure I care. Kimpton wouldn't honor the lower price I found on hotels.com; so, I didn't book the room through them.
Location Good deals always have windows against next building with no view
Enjoyed comfortable beds, coffe shop and evening wine that was complimentary. Stayed there with wife and two teenage children - bathroom was too small!
Easy to get to fom Laguardia. Room nice, clean , quiet, temperature control worked well, staff efficient and nice. Twenty min walk to Harold Squire, MSG, Penn Station, 5 min to Grand Central. Good value hotel.
Great Staff, very good location for us. Were always cheerful from the front desk to front door and especially the service people. Would recommend outright with the exception of noise. Had very noisy neighbors next to us. Sound traveled easily through the walls. Traffic noise was also pretty apparent.
Rooms were large (for New York) and comfortable. Bathroom was large. Staff was friendly. Very close to Grand Central Terminal. Quiet at night. Food prices at Silverleaf were not posted and VERY high!
The location was great. Walking distance to Grand Central Station. The bathroom was clean and the bed was really comfortable. The staff were friendly and the concierge was somewhat helpful. The first thing I noticed is that the staff were not dressed very neatly. As I struggled with my bags and getting into the lobby the doorman didn't help at all. Then when I got up to my floor I smelled a strange odor, almost like a skunk, and then in my room it smelled like mildew the entire time I was there. I had to spray my cologne all over the room so I wouldn't smell it when I was trying to fall asleep. The blanket on the bed looked dirty like it was covered in dog hair so I didn't even touch that and also everything felt sticky in the room. I also didn't receive a courtesy call to assure everything was ok with the room.
The location and friendly staff
The staff was so nice and went above and beyond to be as helpful as they could. Mario was a wonderful door man that was able to compensate the trouble we had with our door. Chris and Danny helped my mom and I get metro cards so we could use the subway to travel around the city. Danny physically walked us to the train station to show us where to buy the metro cards. We had issues with the door to our room the entire stay, the key card wouldn't work after ten minutes of being programmed.
Staff was awesome and very accomodative Free Raid-The-Mini-Bar Card Rooms were tiny (even by NY standards) Hotel felt a bit claustrophobic in general
Everything was pleasant except the amount of external noise you can hear in your room, both from inside the hotel halls and the street noise. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Excessive noise from external sources
It's located near major attractions and it's the room assigned to my family and myself is a good size room. That it did not include continental breakfast
Historic property. They don't make them like this any more. Elevators were very slow and jam packed with people at peak hours. Also, there are lots of stairs in lobby making accessibility a challenge for disabled.
Extremely small rooms. Loud air conditioner. Needs work
I liked the location and for the most part the room was clean and the bed was nice. I didn't like how most of the hotel was not updated and the valet service took a while.
Checked in after a long flight from Australia at 11pm. Room was not made up and bathroom was disgusting. Went to receptionist who allocated us another room - same result. Demanded a refund, and went and checked in at the Westin. Very disappointed.
More dining, social areas
In general the staff was nice and accommodating. In particular the concierge named Aisha (spelling?) was extremely kind and helpful. The room was clean, and got the job done. I would stay here again as it was a great value and location. My 'Cosy Queen' was pretty small. If I had another person sharing the room, it would have definitely been too small. But for myself it was fine, but not for the clastrophobic!
The lobby is beautiful and the location is great. Upon arrival to an already expensive hotel, I was told I had to pay a MANDATORY fee for "free wifi and a 10% food voucher and gym use". I didn't want any of that, but was forced to pay anyway. I was woken up by housekeeping next door at 5:55am - no apology when I left at 6am because I couldn't sleep. The room was dusty and not very clean and I ended up taking the stairs from the 12th floor because the elevators were sloe, though those issues were nothing compared to the terrible hours and ridiculous fees. Do not stay here.
Location was great Elevators were impossible. Had to wait upwards of 10-15 minutes for an elevator to reach the 10th floor, every single time we used them. Actually opted to take the stairs a few times to save time. Toilet in the room ran for almost 5 minutes after every flush. We were locked out of our room at 1130am, 30 minutes prior to checkout time. The "breakfast bar" in the hotel lobby had nothing but coffee and 2 bananas left at 10am, with no other options provided. We did not get a receipt at checkout, either, nor was one emailed to us. And lastly, we waited for almost 30 minutes for our car to be brought around at checkout because the driver was waiting for the doorman to call him to come around (which he did as soon as we came outside).
The location for the cost is imcomparable. I will definitely put this on the list next time. Front desk and bar staff were not service oriented. Bar prices are... well... it's NYC.
I went with my girlfriend and her 17yr old sister. Everything was perfect. The front desk personnel were more then accommodating and the room was beautiful. the hotel itself was great. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!
Hotel was excellent! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and clean with very comfortable bed. Very close to the sites. 10 minute walk from Rockefeller, 20 minute to Time Square. Very safe area, would definitely recommend.
Great suite, stylish and comfortable furnishings, and large, modern bathroom at fair price and good service. Environment conducive to business and tourism with family, privileged and quiet location, with all facilities. The view from the low level is not pretty, facing other buildings, but it does not bother. The restaurant does not have many choices, but is reasonably priced and a good last minute option. Anyway, around there are several alternatives to services and restaurants.
Great location! Hotel was within walking distance of pretty much everything! Staff was extremely friendly & accomodating. when in NY again for fun, this would be the first place I would look to book. Not overpriced but still seemed like a luxury stay. Thanks Marriott! Nothing. the stay was amazing
Everything works. Very efficient use of space. Nice restaurant downs stairs. GREAT location across the street from GCT. No front desk to speak of. Off putting at first, but it works well.
A lot of street noise and elevator noise from my room Are there any Whitehouse options?
Nice staff Generally clean Great Restaurant A great basic hotel for someone on business by themselves who does not need many extras. No real hotel lobby Machine coffee No real concierge Very small room for a couple with 2 suitcases No real breakfast (snack bars put out)
The 27th floor lounge
We thought the place was clean and a good value for the money spent. It was an excellent location. Room was small but we expected that in NYC.
Common sitting areas have nice ambiance and rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Did not expect the contiguous Irish Restaurant & Bar which served excellent food. Provided a much more upscale experience than the price tag prmised Only thing that did not work was the in room phone connections to the front desk and other services but the staff quickly compensated.
The Pub was authentic and nice. We had small problem with our door lock, The staff solved our problems relatively fast .
clean rooms, large for nyc, super helpful and friendly staff!!!
The location was excellent, and the room was very comfortable, well appointed and clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Special thanks to the girl from Nicaragua tending the bar. Our room, which faced the bar in the garden, was a bit noisy in the early evening.
This was a quiet and comfortable hotel. It has an on sight restaurant and bar. Staff very accommodating. Room temperature just right and bed comfy.
Love the Wheeltapper pub. Love Irish feel of the hotel. Centrally located near GCS and 4.5,6 trains Very nice staff Cozy rooms Small rooms Wifi not free in rooms
Bathroom well appointed but very small Bedding very comfortable as was A/C Staff very friendly and helpful, Room also felt very clean. Found the bedroom & bathroom to be small, even for NY.
The staff was very nice and most accomodating when I arrived and my room wasn't ready due to a late departing flight crew. They put me in another room that was larger than the one I had booked. The hotel was in a great location and convenient to many attractions. There is a great sandwich shop just around the corner as well. I will definitely stay with them again when I go back to NYC.
Hotel was clean and quiet, staff was friendly. Well located close to Grand Central station. Rooms were spacious for NYC and well appointed.
Very intimate feel. Stepping off the streets is stepping into a calm and elegant world. Love the attached ba, Wheeltapper,r that has outdoor seating, which is covered and heated in the winter. I only saw it in the winter but it a great little spot. Central but hidden courtyard. I would definitely go back to this hotel. Would've been nice to have coffee in the lobby and more lobby seating. That area was nicely done but hard to linger.
The staff was great especially Nick! Very clean and modern feel Close to Grand Central Great restaurant Quiet room Windows opened Large room and bathroom
The service was absolutely stellar. And the rooms themselves are truly gorgeous. Plush, comfortable living in New York. Absolutely nothing wrong with where I stayed! No hiccups, I was well taken care of by the staff there. Aliana at the front desk is simply wonderful.
When we checked in, we were informed of an additional "resort" charge of $40 which is tacked on after the room is booked. It is apparently stipulated in the email confirmation but felt like a bait and switch to add this charge after the room is booked and confirmed. I'd also booked a room w/ a sofa bed for my 14YO but our room only had one bed. When I called the front desk, they said I could upgrade for a charge -- which also felt like a bait & switch. And finally, the cordless receiver's battery was running low and started beeping at 2AM. I finally had to wrap it in towels and put it in the closet so I could sleep. In fairness, the manager the following morning was very sweet and apologetic but prior to talking with him, the rest of the staff seemed unsympathetic about the issues. As someone who owns/operates a business serving the public, I know from experience that staff should be trained to contact a manager if a guest is disgruntled rather than waiting and letting them complain to a manager 24 hours later. At that point, the damage is done. And finally, the hotel uses a strange artificial scent in the common areas which smells terrible and gave us both a headache.
Cleanliness, size of room, bathroom was exceptional, location was great, staff was great, wine on check in was great The bed did not have a sheet, which was odd and made me think of sanitary issues from prior guests.
The staff is knowledgeable and kind. Helpful all the time. The decorations and rooms are spacious and elegant. Clearly a top-tier hotel. Everything was perfect.
Good deal in a great location. Tired - in definite need of a refresh. The small, supposedly chic lobby area, overwhelmed by surrounding non-guest revenue, gets old for residents very quickly.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Perfect Midtown Location. Ultra modern, comfortable accommodations. It was great for a short stay, but for a longer stay, didn't have much area to store clothes.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
the amount of space of the room and the modern decor there wasnt 24 hr room service and the menu was rather lacking in choices. Also didn't like the reception and lobby area...it was to open and no place to sit and relax
Best hotel experience ever! Very sleek, staff was fantastic!
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Complimentary wine hours and coffee in the am. Also free minibar soda and water!
Great location, with free wine at happy hour . Room was largest and nicest I've ever had in Manhattan. Shortly after returning home I realized I was covered in bedbug bites. I contacted the hotel and they say they checked the room and found no evidence. Still, I was affected for over 2 weeks with terrible itching and discomfort.
The location is good. The hotel is nowhere near as it is advertised 4 1/2 stars. It is a 2 1/2 to 3 stars at best. Furniture is old. Terrace rooms not worth the extra money at all. View of an office building directly across. No way should this room be a The reception desk upon entering the lobby looks like a construction zone. It's a 2 1/2 - 3 stars at best. The desk the receptionists use looks like something they picked up at a garage sale. The rooms are so dated the wood floors are worn out.
