Decorations! Classy!

Outstanding location and a very good value. Could walk to central par, Times Square and Rockafeller. Hotel restaurant was a plus.

This hotel feels super safe, the decor is exquisite, and the staff is very friendly.

I liked the location and staff of this hotel very much. The staff treated everyone like a celebrity, accommodating our requests and anticipating our needs. My one criticism would be the comfort of the bed. And this is subjective, but we both found it uncomfortable. The original pillows gave no support. I called housekeeping to ask for something firmer and they promptly brought us foam pillows. The foam pillows were better, but maybe it was the mattress. Not sure. Also, they made the bed with a duvet and no top sheet. So when the duvet became too warm and you had to push it down, you had no sheet to cover yourself with. Not sure I’ve seen that before in a hotel.

The location of the hotel was wonderful. We would have been able to walk to dinner and our show if it weren’t raining. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. Rooms are clean but small. That’s to be expected in the city. The reasons I did not give this hotel 5 stars is because the valet fees are higher than most hotels ($65 per day plus additional taxes). Also there is a fee of $29 per day for WiFi, coffee bar and things that you’re probably not going to use on vacation. I really liked the property but may consider another for those two reasons.

The service is the best I have ever experienced in any hotel. Everything is clean and immaculate. The room was a skyscraper suite and it was everything you could hope for. The location is great...easy to get to all spots in Manhatten on foot. We did take taxi to Greenwich Village the 2nd time. This will now be the only hotel I stay at in New York City. Highly recommend.

Service was wonderful. Hotel lobby is welcoming and beautifully decorated. Room exceeded expectations. Highly recommend staying here.

Good hotel, great location and friendly staff. Restaurant was good, and rooms were a bit small but very clean

Location friendly staff walkable restaurant nearby good beds

It was a very pleasant stay. I appreciated the coffee service in the morning.

Convenient location. Friendly decor. Not digging this 50 character comment requirement.

Wish there were a spa. The room was quite small we thought there was a sitting room w a pull out sofa in it for our daughter

Service and atmosphere. The only thing No coffee in the room

This is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in a hotel. The staff is very polite, helpful and very unobtrusive. There when you need them and out of sight when you don't. Very close to Times Square - easy walk to catch the tour bus, get a bite to eat or just people watch.
