Gorgeous Hudson River/ Manhattan skyline view. The bar is nice and located in beautiful lobby
Location was great. It was nice to be able to get out of the city and away from the holiday crowds. Nice views of the city skyline. Not much night life close to the hotel. Most restaurants close to the hotel were closed on the weekend.
Excellent service Clean Great views of NYC Location is perfect PArking fee is too much.
Very clean. Staff was helpful and friendly. Beautiful views. $32 a day parking and no free WiFi.
The staff were very helpful.
Great stay. Ideal for venturing into NYC great location.
The staff at the counter for my check-out was carrying an attitude. She seemed not happy or not nice at all during my checkout process. Did not say hi or goodbye either. It gave me a feeling that I was in a DMV.
The family really enjoyed our stay at the Westin Hotel in Jersey City. The staff was extremely friendly and the room was clean, comfortable and up to date. I have no complaints. The location was great if you want to go sight-seeing in New York. You are close enough to get to the city in no time (I recommend the subway (Path) with ease and have a location that is away from the hustle and bustle if that is what you prefer and Jersey City is extremely clean and people friendly. I can't recommend it enough!!!! Nothing.
Great location. Easy access to NY center.
Location location location, proximity to NYC is great, good food around the hotel area as well Was not able to check in until 2.5 hours after the check in time due to non-availability of rooms.
Views, staff, quality of the rooms and hotel Nothing
It takes only 5-minute walk from a station.
Good alternative to Manhatten. Rooms were a nice size, staff were polite and helpful and would definately reccommend this others.
The staff were extremely courteous, helpful and accommodating. At check-in, Debbie was wonderful, great sense of humor, and very professional. She upgraded our room and gave us a beautiful view of the Manhattan. The young man at the door was wonderful as well. He was kind and courteous. The beds were very comfortable and clean. We didn't like that there was a charge for wi-fi. We normally stay in hotels where the wi-fi is free. On the positive side, since we didn't use it for the 24 hours that we paid for, my credit card was credited and we were only charged half of the fee for wi-fi. Wasn't too thrilled about paying $3.00 for a coke from the little store either.
A great place to stay for a NYC weekend. Quieter than Manhattan, beautiful skyline view and very close to the PATH train. The staff is very friendly and the room was clean. Will stay there again.
Nice, clean hotel. Friendly staff.
Comfortable bed 50 dollars for Below average scrabled eggs, potatoes, oatmeal for two... I was not impressed with the price or quality of food.
Friendly staff at check-in. Door man helpful and fast getting car checked and checked out for trip home. Clean room but a small. Ok for an overnight stay. Close to Times Square, theatres, and midtown sights. Music in elevators very loud.
Location and the food and bar area
Swanky lobby doesn't translate to the rooms, which are cramped and awkwardly layed out. This is bottom end, despite the trendy sounding name. How anyone would rate this a 4 star property is beyond me. For first night of two night stay my room was oversold. They sent me to the Hyatt Times Square; much nicer.
I don't like it Cause the room was dirty
The room was way to small. I never been in a place like this. I call the front desk to see if they change the room and they do nothing
The Location thats about it For Manhattan the price was not bad Room is small Walls are thin - loud hallways No movies on demand NO MINIBAR No full length mirror No Room Service
The elevators speed very fast. Very comfortable beds. Very quite for most part except for outdoor noise which is unavoidable but not bad at all. Clean rooms. Great staff. The security is well above the norm, made us feel very safe. Locating is very convenient to all parts of the city. Loved the location. Rooms are small but we didn't come to sit in the room. There were two of us and we were comfortable wouldn't have wanted anymore than two in the room that we stayed in. For our first visit to NYC we had a fabulous time and enjoyed the hotel very much.. Lobby gets very crowded at times. Travelers using elevators for first time doesn't even consider that someone might be getting off the elevator and they crowd the door to the point you can't get off. No reflection on the Row but just be warned you can get run over before you get off the elevator.
-Staff was very helpful -Location was tremendous, 1 block from Times Square -Excellent elevators. Customized for each individual. Enter your room # and it tells you which elevator to use. Time in elevators or waiting for elevators reduced dramatically. -rooms a bit small -bathroom very tight
city kitchen tiny room. provide nothing that is needed including gowns, slippers, water.. not like a 4 star hotel.
Location of hotel. The hotel's food court Resort fee (whatever that was) was too high. Room tv with HBO did not work
Great hotel in the middle of everything, next to subway line. Inside hotel is the City Kitchen where you have a "food court" with many renamed local restaurants. Included breakfast was so so, not the best but good. Very clean room, they cleaned our room every day. Eight elevators, but always very busy. Extremely small room, very noisy on 7th floor (at night all trucks and constructions work and you hear everything in the room). Thanks God we got the "Deluxe City view" because it was supposed to be a bit bigger. The view is not as good as other in the area but its ok for the price. One night we found a small worm in the ice from the ice machine. They should have better beds. But over all its the best option for the $$.
The atmosphere is create and good vibes all around. I love the style of Decor
My wife has a convention here once a year in January so I tag along. We had a stunning view of Broadway and Times Square from our corner room on the 45th floor (out of 46). Room was clean. Service is friendly and courteous. Bell Captain kept our bags for us after checkout so we could do a bit of sight-seeing until we had to go to the airport. When it was time to get our bags, he walked them down to the taxi stand for us and made sure we had a cab. Wi-fi seemed a bit slow.
The location was good. Their concierge staff were nice . Check in was quick .we were givin compound of 2 free complimentary drinks from their bar but we did nit use it.wifi was included in the service fees but also I did not need to use it. When I checked in the toilet was ful of hair & there was a nail on the toilet table .generally the housekeeping service is not good. I noticed that paper napkin was not refilled as if they are saying you have to use one box per stay
Location of the Crowne Plaza Times Square was perfect and centrally located. The Concierge, Corinne, was amazing. She gave great tips, directions, and was so personable and friendly. Our room was awesome, with a great view. The exercise facility was great, many areas to work out in and a large variety of equipment. All staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a great time.
Great hotel if you're a tourist and want to be in Times Square - easy walking distance to many attractions and not too far can / uber ride to others. The rooms were nice and clean, the maids always bought us new soaps, razors, toothpaste, towels etc. some of the staff are seriously awful. My partner has a severe allergy to nuts, and we had issues with two waiters there who seemed preoccupied and had to ask a manager to go and confirm if there was nuts in a dish she wanted for dinner or not. The waiter made us feel awful and then progressively got ruder (getting in our faces, yelling, etc) after the manager had been involved. We did get given a few free drinks and a box of chocolates from management (although she couldn't have the chocolates due to nuts) But otherwise we had a lovely stay, only ruined by a few staff members who need to learn if you work in a service job it's part of your job to at least TRY and be polite and understanding!
The most unfriendly staff I have encountered at a hotel
It was in a perfect location in Times Square. A few blocks from the subway. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Needs some updating/maintenance. For the price you pay for location, seems they could upkeep better. All 3 drawers in our dresser didn't close properly, off track or something. Bathrooms could use some new caulk, gappy and dirty looking.
Location, Location, Location!
The website we booked from describes the upper lounge which no longer exists. The in-room guide describes the Room Service Menu. Room service no longer exists.
Location Paid $275 for after show party in the restaurant All they had was 4-5 items of Chinese food and open bar. No menus for food nor drinks. Grumpy wait staff.
Service, location, beds, rooms were right size, showers.
Location was good They dont encourage people booking hotel from other web sites They prefer it from there site and they help them only . I was staying in hotel for times square view Not for other view Overall worat experience
Great accommodating staff. Helpful concierge. So close to Times Square & all the theaters, so perfect for the 1st time visitor. Clean & comfortable. Beds are nice & cozy. Pool is part of the gym inside the building, so it's only a lap pool. Not for lounging & definitely not for kids. There is a sauna which would be nice in the winter. Very busy hotel! Not a relaxing lobby or even many places to sit (only 4 chairs & some makeshift areas around the plants)! No mini fridge in room.
Room service. Cold, stale food
Great location. Close to Times Square, Central Park, and Rockefeller Center. Large rooms for a New York hotel. Very professionally run and business like facility. High energy level with constant activity in the public areas. It isn't cheap but you can easily pay more for less value in NYC.
Clean room with a comfortable bed. The hotel is very centrally located with many attractions close by. Staff was very efficient and friendly. The walls are paper thin and we had very loud neighbors. We could hear everything going on in the room next door. Unfortunately the neighbors were very inconsiderate and we had to call down to security to ask them to be quiet.
clean and mid town so all the attraction you can cover by walk breakfast was not included while we expected bed and breakfast
Great location, good room comfort. When you book the price seems to be great, but then you find that the Internet is not included and also the bagage keeping has a cost.
Nice sized room for NY. Updated and modern. Heat was stuck on high and it was super hot. Luckily the windows work and we could get a cold breeze. Pillows were fluffy and flat at the same time.
Location, Location For the money we aid, we should have a t lest a coffe maker in room/water
It was close to all the places we wanted to see. Walk to Times Square, subway nearby, etc.. Lots of restaurants all around. We had a corner room so view in 2 directions! Nothing
Bathroom look old!
Location check in staff
Very clean, great location! I have stayed here a few times and always have a nice time there. The cleaning staff is so friendly. The food at the hotel is very expensive. I searched all over for an atm machine and couldn't find one. The lines for the elevator can be a bit long
The is the one of the best locations in the theater district. Most of the major theaters are located within three blocks of the hotel. The same day ticket office is located yards away from the hotel so you can get up early to get your ticket and then return to your room. The hotel entrance is right off times square. The hotel is clean large and and the staff is very friendly and efficient. Many family oriented dining establishments are nearby as well as easy access to the subway and various tour operators. The hotel is large and is used as a convention facility. So if you do not like large crowds and being in the location that is busy and very active during the evening hours, this is not the place for you.
We loved our view of the city, the lady at front desk upgraded our room at no charge, clean rooms, friendly staff, within walking distance of everything, will definitely stay here again Breakfast buffet way overpriced for the quality
View Restaurant staff was great! Nice suite with view of Broadway. Construction noise in the morning.
People at front desk were nice The customer service at the view lounge was terrible. The lady that served us did not believe that we enter staying at the hotel and Saud very loud that the room number that we gave her did not exist and I showed her my key. She was very rude we felt embarrased.
Our stay was fine. The staff was friendly, the room was clean. As one would expect for $400/night. The ticket counter for local shows was very helpful/convenient. automated elevator system crammed too many people into each trip testing the fire alarm system each day that we stayed very uncomfortable sofa bed mattress (felt every spring)
Very Nice Hotel with a lot of action Expensive
Location was perfect . Check in and check out is very easy and staff was very friendly . We request for double bed and sofa we paid more to get room like that but sofa was too old to sleep on and they bring us roller bed but matteres was very uncomfortable that u can feel all the metal under the sheet.
Great location and some great views. They apperently give every person in the hotel access to the executive lounge. I'm used to a crowd at times but this was crazy. They need to either expand the lounge or enforce the entry policy.
Location Response time of the staff and high cost to eat hotel restaurant...
The did not clean the room very well
Location No elite services on weekends - $ charge to print out boarding pass - failed to clean room - front desk staff was not guest oriented - platinum member - will look for other hotels.
The View Restaurant was absolutely amazing. Room was lovely. Staff was knowledgable, friendly and helpful. Leaving!
Location, rooms are comfy , free internet My mother's shoes were stolen, Along with my nephew's (2 and 1/2 yo) pillow and toys. The shoes were inside a suitcase the entire time which makes the case even worse. We complained at the front desk, but the staff were unapologetic and did nothing to solve the issue.
We appreciated the entire stay. It was quiet, friendly staff, clean, accomodating, close to subway. Good food . We had to leave. We have recommended it to others and will be back.
Items of our luggage were stolen
Friendly and accommodating staff! Loved that everyone was there willing to help. Also liked the security of staff checking to make sure that all guests coming into the hotel were in fact supposed to be there. Didn't like that there wasn't a fridge and/or microwave in the room given the price. Room was very nice but for the price I would've expected at least a fridge.
Clean rooms, Small rooms
Nice hotel Check in process was BAD Booked via Kayak and they did not have my reservation I had a confirmation # Took almost an hour to resolve
Nothing I liked. Worst costumer service!! Front desk guests service were so rude. My room was already paid and booked for but still had to wait two hours just to get my room!
The room was spacious for NYC standards and very clean and well kept. The furnishings were modern and kept up to date. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay. It would have been nice to have a refrigerator in the room to keep our water, wine and cheese cold.
Close enough to walk many places. Staff was extremely friendly. Horrible view from window.
Nice interior All staff Ive come across felt like security. They dont respond to greetings. When they selectively ask to see your room keycard to enter the hotel and you see the people in front of you stroll right in while you get "carded" almost everytime...Im a well groomed mid 20's asian business man on vacation what more do you want? And in the heart of korea-town no less! I avoided the staff for the rest of my stay due to their less than friendly disposition and most times they seemed too busy to talk to you because they are allll on their phones textingg! Mainly speaking of night staff. For such a historic Landmark of a Hotel the staff certainly takes away from its authenticity,beauty and glamour. As far as the rooms go everthing seemed fairly clean and nice. Only issue was the brown water I had to shower in and the air condition wasnt working the first day but their engineering staff promptly fixed the A/C unit.
I gues for us-measures this Hotel has to be considered old The Service is excellent and it is Central
Nothing. Bed was super hard. Rooms are tiny.
None The room size is very small. The hotel itself is outdated. The only thing going for them is the location to Madison Square Garden.
Location is great. Price wasn't bad. Even though I booked and prepaid for our stay, they charged us 23 per night for "facility fee". When I asked what was for, they said "it's a required fee for wifi". I tried to say we didn't need wifi, but the gentleman said "sorry, it's a required fee". There is also some construction going on, which woke us up at 730am. When look outside, there was a cord. They didn't alert us about construction, and neither told us to make sure our curtains were closed. Rooms are also a bit outdated and small.
2 bathrooms for one room made it extra convienent. Clean rooms. Ask for a room with a view. You can't go wrong. Didn't have any issues with anything.
You cant beat the location, across the street from Madison Square, walk to Macys, and just a few minutes to Time Square. If you get a remodeled room the place is okay. Clean, but small, lots of road noise and no privacy due to thin walls. You can hear everything your neighbors are doing. THE SERVICE IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! RECEPTIONIST SAID THE ROOM WOULD BE READY IN AN HOUR AND SHE WOULD CALL TO LET US KNOW. 4 HOURS LATER STILL NO CALL. WE RETURNED AT 430 AND THE ROOM WAS STILL NOT READY. NEEDLES TO SAY SHE NEVER CALLED. This place has college students living in half of the rooms, so theres constant noise. If you have small children, or are looking for a private place for couples this is not the place. If you just need somewhere to crash and hangout in the city it works. The location is great, the rooms are clean, and its affordable. IF YOU BOOK THROUGH GET A ROOM / KAYAK PLAN ON YOUR RESERVATION NOT BEING IN THE SYSTEM WHEN YOU ARRIVE. THERE WERE SEVERAL PEOPLE WITH THIS PROBLEM.
Bathroom walls poorly painted, TV very small, no fridge (refrigerator). In itself very expensive for poor quality.
The location was awesome It was so small and incredibly expensive for what you get. There were families being evicted in adjacent rooms. Don't know the story there, but not your typical "4 star" experience.
The location was the best! The hotel is okey, but the prices are not...
Came down from Boston and wanted to stay near Penn Station to make traveling home easier. The location was good since it's a quick five minute walk to the train. My biggest complaint is that the hotel charged me an extra $25 fee for the business lounge, phones and wifi, which they didn't disclose to me at all. In fact, when I checked in, they touted their guest wifi as a feature of the hotel. You can imagine my surprise then when I woke up with a paper invoice slipped underneath my door in the middle of the night demanding I pay $25 for a "facilities fee." Seems like they are nickel-and-diming their customers to squeeze out every last dollar of an already expensive hotel. Beyond the hiddens fees, I stayed in a Double Metro room with a colleague. The room was a bit cramped without much room to move around. There were only two accessible outlets in the entire room, so charging phones and laptops between meetings was impossible for both of us at once. The others outlets either used European plugs or were inaccessible behind the headboards of the beds. In the middle of the night, the room became inexplicable hot and since you can't open the windows, there was really no way to cool it down. The shower fluctuated back and forth between frigid and scalding hot every 5 seconds. All in all, the facilities were so so and I was thankful my tripped was only schedule for one night.
Loved the location. Liked the room cleanliness. Very small room for three people. Good thing we only stayed for one night!
Poorly disclosed 30$/day facility fee
Liked the location of our room w/ a great view Comfortable bed & sheets Liked the history of the hotel and the decor - Liked its location and taxis availability The check-in host was going to extend our check out time to 2 pm since it was my birthday and we checked in around 5 pm. However this wasn't noted in the computer.
Once you get past the unprepossessing lobby, the hotel is really excellent. We were upgraded to a junior suite, which was large, comfortable and well-appointed. It was bitterly cold so we ate in the hotel, choosing the bar's little plate menu over the Vlentine's Day special menu; each choice was delicious. Large, contemporary bar and restaurant (maybe showing a little wear on the cushions) and excellent service. Location, right on the corner of Times Square, can't be beat if you want to be in the middle of it all. Not cheap, but we weren't on a penny pinching trip. Worth every penny. Special mention to the concierge for fulfilling a couple special requests. As noted, the lobby is decidedly underwhelming although the staff was friendly and helpful. Otherwise, no complaints!
Great place to stay. Very sheik and hip. Roof Top Bar is out of this world!!!
Impeccable service Immaculate rooms Excellent location between Times Square and Bryant Park Can't complain about anything.
Clean spacious rooms, good service, not great wi-fi
We came for the birth of my first grandchild.the hotel is very modern and sleek. Our room was large and well appointed with all of the modern technological conveniences. The mattress was very comfortable with high thread count linens. The bathroom was large and had more bath accessories than I have ever seen. I.e. Cuff links, tooth brush, paste, etc. I loved the large soaking tub. We never heard any outside noise even though this hotel is located in Times Square From the front desk to the doorman, the service was incredible. Leilani, one of the managers even gave us a gift for the new baby. I would highly recommend this hotel!
The Knockerbocker was a very nice hotel with a great location. My only complaint was the day that we left, we stored our bags for a few hours. When we came back to pick them up, it took 20 minutes or so to get them. I had to catch a flight. The front desk was unapologetic about it. They just stood at the desk, while customers waited and were dissatisfied. They need to make sure they are staffed properly at a busy time, and if not, other staff should pitch in. It should be a group effort, because it makes the hotel better as a whole.
2 queen beds made this hotel perfect for our family of four. Located right on Times Square, the hotel held our bags after checkout while we went across the street to see a Broadway show.
The renovation last year really upgraded this NYC classic. Now the interiors are just as lux as the classic facade. Great location in Times Square but quiet and tranquil retreat inside. Great service and really friendly staff. We enjoyed our girls weekend immensely. Avoid if you don't like fighting through crowds at Times Square.
The reception staff, especially Felix, were very helpful and courteous. The room maids were polite and efficient. The hotel location was like an oasis with the nearby marina, shopping mall and street restaurants after the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.
The staff were extremely helpful, courteous and friendly and the hotel room we had wass excellent - spacious and with good amenities. Whilst there isnt too much to do, or see, in the immediate area with the ease of transport into Manhattan [the Path train from Grove station is only a ten minute walk away] it made a relaxing base.
All of the staff that I encountered were very nice. The bed was comfortable. I also loved the welcome cookie. It was a nice surprise and I was hungry!! The location was great for my needs and is just minutes away from the waterfront. The room was nice enough but there was weird white stuff on the walls and in the bathroom. Cleanser maybe? I went down to the bar area and had to wait 5 minutes to be seen/ seated. There were just a few people there so it wasn't a busyness issue. I ordered soup. A little over 5 minutes later the server responded to tell me that the soup would take 25 minutes. I ordered pizza instead. It was fine but I was disappointed. The temperature in the room was freezing. I adjusted it with the thermostat on the wall but the air conditioner continued on, event though I had selected 68 on heat. I ended up pulling the plug to get it to turn off after an hour of adjusting the thermostat and waiting for warmth. I was exhausted from a long day and got in bed to watch tv. The remote control would not turn on the television. I inspected the outlets and they were all okay. The button on the tv worked but, even then, I was only getting 4 commercial channels. The lights on the remote were coming on also so I figured it wasn't batteries. I decided to call the front desk. Unfortunately, the phone in my room did not work/ call to the front desk. I tried both lines but no luck. I even tried dialing other services available on the phone but that just rang and rang. So.... exhausted and frustrated, I got dressed and headed down to the lobby. I had to wait a bit as a few people were just checking in. The person at the desk was very nice and sent someone up to my room. The man arrived to fix the television. He was extremely nice but the issue did take about 15 minutes or so to resolve. He wasn't sure why the issue happened but he had to get a special remote and change some settings. In the morning, I headed down to the restaurant again. I asked if I could order from the menu. I was told buffet only, though I think there may have been a communication issue. I later asked a different server after I saw the selection up close. It was generally unimpressive. She said that I could order from the menu but I decided to just stick with the buffet since the menu would take longer and I felt like I was being a burden by ordering. I was extremely disappointed overall. The eggs, potatoes and waffles were all cold. I ate just a little bit and spent over $20 with tip. I was extremely disappointed. Overall, I wouldn't recommend or stay at this hotel again, unfortunately.
The hotel was conveniently located and quiet. Also the room had an alcove so our baby had some privacy. Somewhat expensive for the service received, but otherwise a fine night.
price no bill at the end even from 3rd party billing and even in e-mail
Very comfortable. Great view and location!
Staff, including restaurant staff, were very friendly and professional Jersey City NJ. Accessibility from the highway was poor, even utilizing gps.
close proximity to light rail and subway lack of view, lack of customer service with rainy day needs; umbrella, dryer for coats and shoes. stayed 2 nights, but hotel split it to two separate nights and we have to check back in and re-key our room keys for the second night. brought personal pillow and maid service removed it during the daily cleaning. T/he pillow was never found.
Yes! Very convenient! Very nice hotel!
The hotel is walking distance from just about everything and the light rail is behind it. Like the cookie at check in. Staff was very friendly. Had a room on the 3rd floor and the view was a roof with lots of vents.
Good location, close to public transportation and nearby shopping, easy to get into uptown. Pretty quiet location. Breakfast is nothing extra, could focus on something else than, bacon, egg and bagels. Continental breakfast. Lack of information on what services are provided in the hotel e.g roomservice menu missing in room.
Spacious rooms. Great products. Awesome shower. Wish there was a coffee shop or starbucks in lobby
Been close to a park to enjoy calm after being in the heart of New-York.
Liked all except conference facility. Hotel was great. Meeting room was bad. Seats may have been most uncomfortable seats I have ever sat in at a conference.
The personel was very courteous. I like the complimentary bar from 5:30 to 7:30 and the choice and freshness of the breakfast Was awaken by a fire alarm at 4:00 am
architectural aspects of lobby and room. Location, location, location.
Loved our deluxe suite room that had sliding doors which kept each room very quiet even when watching tv with the volume turned up in one room. The push button controls were really cool for the lights and privacy settings. Enjoyed the free breakfast at Atrio and the friendly service from everyone there especially the host. The front desk staff were extremely friendly and were able to accommodate a late checkout of 2pm for us. Appreciated the unique designs and architecture of the hotel. Liked that it was located right next to the World Trade Center, and of course Shake Shack. Liked using the exercise room and business center which were very clean and well maintained. Overall it was a very relaxing and pleasant stay. Nothing really except that there was no swimming pool or entertainment room with a pool table or table tennis.
Loved the big huge rooms for NYC.
The rooms are very nice and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. The breakfast was top notch. I would have loved to stay longer.
Location, facilities & service outstandingn Nothing
Beautiful hotel. Excellent service. Dramatic building and interior. Clunky internet sign on. Limited to 2 devices per room.
We found the staff at The Embassy very polite and helpful. The room was very comfortable and clean. Excellent having access to the internet in the business centre. Given the price of the suite we felt the bathroom, whilst clean, was rather shabby.
definitely a different style hotel but we still loved the concept. staff was very friendly. we would definitely stay here again. since there wasn't any superfluous people like bell boys or concierge desks, I wish I saw a lil more savings and value in the price to stay here.
Private rooftop bar and cozy lobby hangout space. European style breakfast lounge and 24 hr snack pantry. Room was small (though big for New York!) yet thoughtfully laid out with clever use of space. Fun/funky upscale low key vibe just perfect. Midtown location excellent for exploring NYC and checking out theatre scene. Daily complimentary bottled water. Friendly, helpful staff If you pay for your breakfasts when you check in you save a couple bucks vs. paying on day of. I can understand that you'd want to have an estimate of how many diners they will be but, come on, this felt a little nickel and dime-y when everything else was so seamless.
Nice upscale, modern and hip boutique hotel. Close to my work in midtown and 6 1/2 Ave. Friendly and consistent staff. Fantastic in room amenities. Comfy bed and nice big bathroom, robes and slippers.
Location, roof top Small room, needs renovation - room looks outdated, paper thin walls - can hear everything from next door, expensive for what you get
Ideal location. Small but well appointed room. Had a great deal so excellent value; likely not great value for money at regular rates, but in that location, would be hard find better options.
Great location, just steps from Central Park, shopping, restaurants, etc. Nice decor. The $25 fee per guest. Really? What a rip off. BUT, it includes free wifi! And a bottle of water! Many hotels offer wifi and water for free to anyone that signs up for their loyalty/rewards program (which is free!) You do get a $10 credit, though, which can be used to purchase a $20 drink on the roof top. Stop gaming your customers.
Nothing. I would recommend kayak remove this hotel from their booking options. It was rated 4.5 out of 5 stars and was the worst hotel I have ever seen. I travel all the time and use you guys to book flights etc. This was my first experience booking a hotel and I will never utilize the service again. I am having to battle with you guys to get money back for a place that was so low quality we didn't feel safe sleeping there. We encountered serious issues upon arrival. We looked at two different rooms and decided due to the condition of the hotel and the utter disarray of the rooms that we could not stay there. We are working back trying to get our money back as we had to make other sleeping arrangements.
Bell Hop took bags to room. I gave a $10 dollar tip for 10 minutes of his time. He looked at me and asked.."Really only $10 that is all my time is worth to you"? It was my first time in New York so I took back the $10 and gave him $20. I was later told by other staff the Ball Hop was in the wrong and that I should have taken his name and reported him. Rooms were ok at best. Not super clean.
The location was convenient and it was easy to get to all different places around the city. The rooms could use a bit of updating but we were not in that much. Just to sleep.
This place is a zoo. The people working here were unpleasant. The lobby was stuffed full of people all the time. They charge $5 to keep your bags if you get there before 3 or to hold them until you leave. (Note - the guy working in the bag room was actually very nice, unlike everyone else who seemed terribly bothered by things like checking us in). The tub in our room was peeling so badly it looked like a crime scene. The bed was like a board. The 2 pillows on the bed were the thinnest pillows I've ever seen. The lobby was nice (except the 100 people who seemed to be perpetually camped out in it), but the rooms haven't been updated since 1911. God forbid you need to call the desk for something. There are many lovely boutique hotels and options nearby. Stay away from this one.
Location Mold in bathroom. Uncomfortable bed. Thin towels. Mentioned to staff they said that's what you get when reservation are made on kayak.
The doors locked Took over an hour to check in, and out?!?!? The rooms were gross.
Staff was very unconcerned with complaints Had to have clothing sent to laundry to be decontaminated due to bedbugs-they lost some of my items. While they did comp our room due to bedbugs, the manager has yet to respond to my complaint of lost items and additional expenses. I was promised that my clothing would be returned within a the day-took 2 days. i had to buy a winter coat (as mine was sent out for decontamination). still waiting to be reimbursed.
The only good thing about this hotel is its location
Leaving If only this site would allow me to add pictures... The room was the most disgusting four walls I have ever laid eyes on. It stunk of sewage and there was something dried that was dripping down the walls, TV (from 1982) and the window. It was absolutely horrendous. The manager was rude and dismissive when I informed him of the situation. The maids attempted to enter our room twice within 10 minutes at 9 AM without any attempt to warn us. This hotel made a terrible terrible end to an otherwise great trip. Shame on them for their complete lack of anything resembling customer service or a freaking sponge or can of paint. Disgusted
The only thing I can save from my stay was the location, it's not far from places of sightseeing and they have a metro station right in front of the hotel but that's the only thing I can think of. The hotel is just awful, the staff is just unfriendly and very rude, I had a problem with one of the employees and they could even apologize even do they almost ruin my hole stay there. The room is just sad, is very very small, so dirty and the bed will make you cry, we had to sleep over the bed because the sheets and everything was just disgusting. Really don't stay here is not worth it and you are going to regret booking here, I did...
Absolutely nothing. It was, by far, the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Rooms are from the 80's. Dirty and smell like cigarettes. Staff is unfriendly unwilling to answer the most simple of questions. The valet service is a joke. It took us 1.5 hours to get our vehicle back when we checked out.
Location Outdated rooms, slowness to check and out, limit on towels no bath clothes, issue with elevator
Being close to Broadway, Central Park and Rockefeller Center. The staff was very helpful.
Great Location and wonderful people made this place worth being in NYC!!! Nothing...
Location Too noisy
Location 1. No communication by hotel staff. They tried to place us in a room that is half the size of a regular room without even telling us when we checked in. We found about this when we actually entered the room. After that we had to reconcile this very uncomfortable and unexpected experience. 2. Hotel management spent 10 minutes explaining how they cannot keep the fully paid room and that upon check in they will place and assign the room of their availability. Why bother and pay in advance if there is no guarantee? 3. We didn't feel hospitality was there at all. It truly came across as just another place interested in making money rather than building long lasting experience 4. Hotel is definitely run down and it stinks super bad. 5. We would not recommend this hotel and definitely would not have given it 3 stars. Stay some place else!
The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The location was excellent for our needs. The hotel is tired and worn. It needs an injection of cash to update and refresh the rooms and fixtures. It wasn't the worst place to stay because it was clean and the location was great. The front desk was understaffed at both check-in and check-out. This created long lines and long waits. We had to wait an hour for our room to be ready because they were behind on their turn-overs and we arrived at 8PM. They need to hire more staff for peak times.
Perfect location. Great value for money.
Noise from nearby club was very present in the room every night until 2AM
Location Room facility
Very good, central location on 7th Avenue. Just a few blocks from Times Square, Central Park, immediately adjacent to Broadway...can easily walk (or use subway) to anywhere in Midtown. Hotel staff was courteous and helpful. Had a decent breakfast bar in the lobby with very kind, courteous employees staffing it. Was an enjoyable visit every morning, though it's primarily only got muffins, fruit, and coffee. Room was very minimalist and small. Bed was not particularly comfortable. TV only has a few channels and reception was fuzzy on about half of them. Wi-fi is not free - costs roughly $15 per day, less if you buy several days' worth of usage up front. Noise from the street below was pretty noticeable; it would have been very difficult to tune it out completely had I not been using ear plugs. Basically, it's cheaper than the other (nicer, I would assume) hotels in the area, but the location could make it worthwhile if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in your room...and it's NYC, so why would you? Spend a lot of time out in Manhattan, making use of the great location, and you won't mind the facilities as much.
The location was ideal as it was close to tourist attractions. Lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas and had a very festive luxurious feel. The rooms however were comfortable, standard but clean and gave Bath and Body Works as complimentary toiletries which was a nice touch. Staff were also friendly. Chargable WIFI - We live in a day and age where communication abroad is important to some. Free WIFI should've been included with the room as it wasn't cheap to book here and would be nice if it was complimentary like other hotels in the area. Also we stayed in room 754 where the air con fan wouldn't switch off (in December)!
Place, location, access, and security
Location Poor a/c - room was very warm. Bathroom was small and bed wasn't that comfortable
Zachary at the front desk was wonderful! All of the staff were so pleasant. The fresh flowers in the lobby were just beautiful. The art in residence program showcased interesting pieces of art throughout the hotel. The rooms were lovely, comfortable bed, very clean - an all around 10 out of 10 stay! nothing negative.
