Clean, compact and great for an overnight business trip You have to request an iron and ironing board ... other than that, it's fine.
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!
Very comfortable, cozy bed, with quality mattress and bedding. Great location. Speedy, polite left-luggage service. Way too intimate a space for two people unless you're really, really close. And even then you better not be claustrophobic or have a lot of stuff. You could practically touch all four walls standing in the middle of the room. The bathroom has a not-sealed or soundproof, sliding frosted glass door, like a shower, with no privacy whatsoever. Snotty eye-rolling wenches with attitude at the front desk on check-in, but extremely nice gentleman at check-out almost made up for it.
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.
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.
Location Everything other than location
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.
Clean, good location Not enough elevators, pretty loud at night
In a city where 3 star hotels are above $250 per night, POD 39 rises at a fenominal location, with modern clean and fresh look at a fraction of the price.... Staff is excellent and the rooms are small- cruise ship size, but that's a great compromise for the bvenefits you get... HVAC system was great and the shower is the best ever.... Some of the electrical outlets didnt work and could not be fixed..
well designed, efficient and a good price.
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, 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.
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!!
Good location, nice lobby, Good complimentary toiletries Bathroom small, outdated, with no space to lay personal stuff. Floor seemed to be dirty. Carpet very dusty on the edges, corners and behind the bed. It looks like the housekeeper doesn't have a canister vacuum to reach those places. Bad smell coming from moldy air conditioner. Front desk didn't respond our calls, we ask for a coffee maker to the bell man but they never brought it. We called the bell man for somebody to bring us the kart but they never came. Overall staff is friendly but not efficient.
Extremely small rooms. Loud air conditioner. Needs work
Hotel needs a PIP!
We stay only for 1night and it was great, location is incredibleand the hotel staff was so nice and helpful with is. The only problem it was the charge for the wifi I never use, its too expensive. Everything else was so nice and perfect. I could said that if I go again to the city and decide to stay in a hotel probably The Roosevelt will be an option.... WIFI charge of $16.00 that I jever use....
The bed was very comfortable. Yes I was just surprised by the sheer number of things wrong. As we walked in we both thought. This is beautiful. As we checked in I was told I booked a king bed and I stated I booked a double. I showed the woman ( name omitted) my reservation and she said that a double room just means two people. Fine fine my mistake, I moved on. When we got to the room the heater was making a noise that sounded like an animal was in it. The shower frame was not attached to the wall, the shower door had no way to pull it closed from the inside, the shelf in the bathroom was slanted downward, as was the top of the toilet tank so nothing staying on it. I am a normal sized woman and I was I a difficult time getting dressed in the bathroom due to size. Check out is st noon as in many hotels, at 9 there was a knock on the door. When I answered it the cleaning staff was there and asked when I was checking out. I told them 12. At 1049 there was a knock again, the same staff member asked when I was leaving. Now you may say did you say anything... I tried. I tried calling twice ( was only there one night) no answer and wentdownstairs countless times, but as I was on a quick fun trip I didn't want to waste time. I was just surprising disappointed my my stay and it was compounded when I checked out and then checked into my next hotel, that for only 30 $ more, I not only had the amenities of a " normal room, I was actually given a premier room with a view, corner ceiling to floor windows, A kitchenette, complimentary unlimited filtered water, complimentary breakfast and a staff that was above and beyond. All of this just a few minutes from the roisevelt.
Gorgeous lobby and exterior. Fantastic location. Tiny room, lower grade bath & shower items...didn't feel like I'd get great customer service from the room experience.
Elevators painfully slow. Staff overwhelmed. Wait for elevator, wait for coffe, wait for front desk, wait for cab. Outdated room. Problem with keys working. Unexpected $16 a day charge. Will never stay here again.
Nothing Up all night with bad radiator. Phones did not work or they did not pick up. Rooms are old and dated. Elevator takes forever. $52 for a basic continental breakfast. Go to a diner
The Lobby was beautiful! Tiny room for the price and rather gloomy
Front desk staff.
Loved the building, esp. the ceilings, the nostalgic feel and accommodating staff, Location is excellent too. Bathrooms are small and old. Elevators are very slow. Some repairs needed.
Nice staff very helpful great experience front desk excellent would recommend highly
Great location and valet parking
The rooms were large and well appointed. They were clean and quiet. A bit dark decor and lighting in the lobby area.
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.
They charge $14.95 for wifi in your room. The Lobby furniture is very old no back support. & Very saggy
Older building, recently updated. Lots of charm, yet very modern. Location wad terrific. Hotel was spotless. Pillows on bed were small.
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.
Whenever I visit NYC, I always stay at Affinia. Great hotel. Friendly staff, large clean rooms. Excellent location.
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.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Small, but modern, comfortable and clean room. Great location. Staff and management inattentive and unresponsive or helpful. No services in this hotel although attached to an excellent restaurant, Davios. There is NO WAY this is a 4 star hotel.
Great amenities, excellent staff, and perfect location.
Location is great- close to grand central station and to to many attractions. The bed was disappointing. I could feel the springs on the mattress, it is either very old, or poor quality, or both. I moved to the side closest to the wall and it helped.
Rooms are clean and well designed. The hotel is in an excellent location, close to buses, subway and the Grand Central Station. I particularly like the arrangement with a nearby garage, where I placed my car at a rate about half the normal 24-hour rate.
Location to Grand Central Not a 4 star hotel. Rooms were tiny. Really a Club Quarters too.
Great central location immediately adjacent to Grand Central Terminal. Staff were very police and the rooms and common areas were clean. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
Room and bathroom was very clean. Great staff. The internet TV did not work properly. There was no iron and ironing board in the room - you had to go to a common area to grab one. Strange.
I love the location of this hotel, the lounge on the 27th floor, the quiet space on the 2nd floor, sufficient electrical outlets in the room, and the water bottles! Nope. This is my preferred hotel when in NY on business.

Location and staff Room size
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.
Great room. Clean. Comfy bed. Limited view.
Clean room, very nice cleaning staff. Front desk people pretty ho hum . Slow elevators during peak times. Not all elevators working. Kept stopping at floors for people with override keys. Very expensive hotel overall, hotel ( hotel rate), food ($4.50 for a cup of tea at the cafe on the main floor & you have to make it yourself!)
Location Cleanliness Restaurant organization Front desk layout
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).
staff very helpful elevators out of svce at times
Great position for tourists sights. Direct access to to the subway and Grand Central Terminist and food hall. Very expensive
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.
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 the sink in the bathroom was too small.
Excellent Location for city break. View from room window.
Friendly clean and fantastic location
Clean, confortable, well located and has everything you need (from iron to shampoo and shuttle) Has no access for wheelchairs and the stairs of the entrance are complicated if you have heavy luggage.
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
Very close to Grand Central Station and the Metro and also a good location for walking to many of the major attractions.
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.
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
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)
plenty of room the road works but that's New York
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.
Near to Grand Central Roadside noise was too loud
FYI the rooms are real real small. Didn't bother me.
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.
only bad thing was the small rooms other than that it was good
Easy access to Grand Central and in the heart of NYC.
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
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
Hotel stay was right on point after a long day thanks
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)
A lot of street noise and elevator noise from my room Are there any Whitehouse options?
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
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 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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Room size was bigger than avg. in NYC Mattress was comfortable Zero noise on 14F TV was great quality Pillows were uncomfortable to rest on. Nothing else we found uncomfortable or bad to review. that's it. SP
The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in! The room was very large for NYC and the shower head (rain shower) in the bathroom was amazing!! I also liked that there was a long hallway separating the door, bathroom, closet and vanity from the bedroom. Great location - close to Grand Central. There was a wonderful breakfast place a couple of blocks away (Zucker's) that we visited a couple of times - excellent quality and price. I was only able to reserve a King size bed online and would have liked 2 double beds. The hotel was going to accomodate us with 2 beds, but wanted $50 more a night. They did upgrade us to a larger studio that had 2 comfortable chairs and a table, which was great!
The room was bigger than we anticipated. It was really big. The location is great; very close to grand central station. It was quiet and better than staying in times square. There were several restaurants near by and 5th avenue was just a few blocks away. Hotel staff was very nice and helpful. We were pleased. The fixtures in the bathroom were coming off the walls. Cleanliness was a tiny bit off. Looked like either blood or ketchup on the curtains (I am going with ketchup). Need to stay above 7th floor or you will hear the music from the lounge. Could have used a microwave/refrigerator.
Issue with we form in first two categories. I was a business/solo traveler. The rating section was operating.
friendly staff queen bed advertised as king
Staff was amazing, room was fabulous. I usually stay at the Dream-Downtown and the rooms here are bigger (as is the bathroom). Overall a great value for my money. No actual lobby or bar to hang out in..
Room size comfort cleanliness and contemporary A little further from Times Square than I expected and the staff was unfriendly
The bed was really comfortable and the room very quiet for New York. I think the shower was recently renovated and was terrific. The rain-style shower head was mounted high so that you didn't have to duck under it and there was also shower wand if you needed it. I also loved that the HD TV had HD cable so that we weren't constantly watching images that were squeezed or stretched. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The only negative was that they're remodeling the bar and restaurant so there was no food or drink available other than room service and the continental breakfast. When that's finished it should be a big improvement.
Unbelievably, my tiny room did not have a dresser. When I inquired about this the indifferent desk manager told me that the smaller rooms sometimes did not come with one! Living in this room out of my bag for five nights was a joy. Upon check out, there were three different staff members at the desk, none of whom could comprehend that there was not a dresser. So they went to check it out --- and big surprise, no dresser. (Apparently they were concerned that I was blind.) No apology, no offer of discount, no reasonable explanation. Had it not been a completely packed week in New York, I would have fled the first night. Oh, the shades didn't work properly either. Never again.
14th floor room was VERY quiet. Great for NYC.
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
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.
Service, service, service! What a welcome surprise, a hotel with carrying employees! Bravo! Room would have been too small for 2 people but it was fine for 1
We traveled to NYC to watch a friend run in the NYC Marathon. The Kitano was walking distance to Grand Central Station. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. We asked to store or bags, because we arrived several hours early. They were able to have a room available for us within 10 minutes. The room was great. We would definitely stay again and recommend it without any reservation.
Common areas were nice! Restaurant was very nice and elegant. The staff was exceptionally friendly and truly helpful. Shower needs improvement and even repair. Besides the shower, bathroom was very good for NYC. Bed was very soft and pillows were mediocre.
The staff on all levels were extremely pleasant and helpful. The hotel is centrally located so we were able to walk to most of our destinations. The rooms were very clean and the amenities were very nice and upscale. Highly recommend! I didn't stay long enough to try the restaurant in the hotel. I want to book another visit soon or at least try to visit the restaurant on a future visit, even if I can't stay at the Kitano!
Larger room, bathroom large enough, shower worked well, friendly accommodating.staff. Later checkout time, shouldn't charge for computer access.
Terrific location. Guest Services were very helpful. Housekeeping was not up to par with rest of hotel features and services.
service was outstanding!!
We really enjoyed the Kitano Hotel. We went as a family to enjoy a weekend there but I used to be a travel agent and this is the perfect location for a business trip to New York depending on where your office is. It's at the corner of Park and E. 38th. We got it through Kayak and simply picked it for price and location. It ended up being the perfect hotel for us. It's located very close to Grand Central Station and therefore easy train access to the rest of Manhattan but it's location also lended itself to walking. There are a few nice restaurants in that area that we enjoyed walking to and, of course, a Starbucks just a little over a block away. The hotel is basic in what it offers but what it does offer is nice. We ate lunch at one of its restaurants and it was very good food and the entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. We didn't eat there for dinner but we heard pleasant music coming from one of their restaurants as we walked out one night. The rooms are small and rather basic but that's all we needed for our purposes. We don't spend time in our hotel when we are in a city like New York so it all worked out. The beds are surprisingly comfortable and the bathroom was nice. Overall I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Manhattan for family or business travel. It was all great and we'd stay there again. Frankly we loved this hotel but the rooms were a little small. If you need room to spread out you'd need to go elsewhere. We had two adults and an adult "kid" and we found it just fine for our purposes though so this was not a problem for us at all.
Location was excellent - great for for shopping in midtown. Staff was very helpful and customer-oriented. Room was on the small side but well laid out. Hotel restaurant has live music concerts.
Rooms and staff were excellent! Front desk, bar, concierge and bell men. Very very helpful to me when I hurt my ankle. Heard cleaning staff complaining in the hall, they didn't care who heard them.
The staff was excellent! The location of the hotel was great and the room was incredibly clean and comfortable. nothing.
The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room and bathroom were small. no place to put the suitcases. also one elevator did not work for over 2 days and we did not have water for 12 hours.
Service was exremely pleasant and accommodating. Room was the smallest room I have ever stayed in. There was no room to put suitcases, no drawers for clothes, insufficient room for toiletries, not even a box of tissues. TV wall mouint was broken so huge TV took up entire desk. TV did not work properly, either. Mattress was worn out and sagging. Room was generally down at the heels.
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.
The staff are excellent. They make every effort to ensure that you are welcomed and enjoy your stay.
The staff is excellent-helpful and friendly. The rooms are very comfortable. Very good bar. A small annoyance--all of the housekeeping paraphernalia (carts, towels, etc) was stored right outside my room. No noise or anything, just a bit unsightly.
Location was excelllent. The reception staff were extremely helpful and polite, nothing was too much trouble for them. Fantastic facilities. very comfortable hotel.
Good location, personal service and has character Was very expensive which I dont think reflect the facilities available (eg no spa)
Staff is great !! Very welcoming and very eager to serve the client at best The room was very nice but a little bit more space would not have hurt ... now remember this is NY, so not really a complaint. Also, noise isolation could be enhanced (we were at the 12th floor but still heard a bit too much what was happening in the street)
The staff were verfy polite and did their best to provide a very good sdervice
Hotel was in a great location to explore and the staff were attentive without being over-bearing. Great hotel.
liked Everything. Excellent hotel
Clean and comfortable rooms - well air conditioned. The breakfast included in the rate was very good. The cheese and wine afternoon tea was also excellent and a great way to meet the different guests in the hotel. It is well located for all the sights of New York. The staff were able to make good dinner recommendations and never failed to impress.
Friendly, great amenities! We stayed in the "Money" room- the books were all 10years plus old- this was disappointing!
Small hotel with a relaxed atmosphere. It's location is in the perfect position for the top sights and not too far to the main shops. The petite rooms are very small
location/ nice rooms with robes,slippers and complimentary water. Also breakfast included although basic and free wine early evening.
Location The room had no AC, complain nothing happened, opened window, I could barely sleep because of the noise from outside
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.
Door man was not in a service. Luggage deposit payable even in waiting for the room clearance.
The rooms are perfect a d the beds are wonderful to sleep.the tv is perfect
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.
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.
The location was great & the hotel is small but pretty. It was New Year's Eve & they were understaffed. The check in took too long, when we finally got to our room it wasn't cleaned. Very messy. Had to go back to lobby. They apologized and changed the room. Later that night the key for the room stopped working so we visited the lobby a third time. Then the tub got clogged. We left it like that and checked out in the morning. Nothing was offered for the inconveniences and we had to wait for about an hour to get the car from the valet which was other hassle because we lost the stub and had to go again to the front desk. I'd been happy if the parking fee at least would've been waived. Again, beautiful hotel & location but they need more staff.
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.
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.
Music at the lobby No toothpaste!
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.
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.
