architectural aspects of lobby and room. Location, location, location.
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.
The Roxy is an indulgence in the best of ways. It's charming and comfortable. Well appointed and close to transit. The staff is friendly and attentive. We only ate breakfast at the hotel, but it was delicious. We were sort of sad we went elsewhere for Sunday brunch... The spread is amazing. There are few negatives to the Roxy, honestly. Location is good, but not great- safety was not a concern. Just don't expect to walk out the door and be somewhere, you'll need to hop the train or a cab. The space is comfortable, but the pillows (like most hotels') were worthless.
Beautiful design, nice position, comfortable rooms, outstanding hall and cocktails The hotel staff seems helpful but not really interested to the customer
We loved staying here. It's undergoing renovations and it looks like it's going to be beautiful. No problems with construction ongoing!
The location was wonderful, right next to the A and C and 1, 2, 3 lines. All less than a block from the hotel. The rooms were cozy w/ great room temperature control. The staff were very friendly and helpful too. Starbucks right next to hotel, which was great because they didn't have coffee or fridges in the rooms. The hotel was doing construction on the floors below us and they started hammering, drilling, and sawing very early, so sleeping in on vacation was impossible. What really annoyed me was while checking out the guy ahead of me who was also checking out made a big stink about the noise and he was comped a night. I complained and only got any apology. Perhaps, if I was not a young Hispanic woman, but a rich looking white dude I would have gotten comped too. The water temperature was hard to control as it was either frigid or scalding.
I asked if the hotel had any rooms with a bathtub. They made sure to give me the one room that had one. The staff and door men were really nice and helpful. The hotel lobby was under construction. While I didn't mind not being able to have a working restaurant or bar in my hotel, I did mind that the construction began at 7 am. The pounding and jack-hammering woke me up. They should at the very least wait until 9 am. It made me rush out the door rather than relax before starting my day. On my last day (after being woken up by the construction noise ) I threw on my clothes and just left. I requested to the staff I should be compensated. My phone didn't work very well in the hotel. I found myself going up and down the elevator to go outside to use it. Why charge $15 a day for Wifi? I also had trouble using the elevator cards. 5 and 6 times before the little green light came on so I could push my floor button.
the location was key. the rooms were decorated well and loved the tub in the bathroom. there was a problem with the temp of the room. it was 81 degrees and we couldn't set the thermostat. we asked for the front desk to check in at 8:30 and when we got home at 2:30- it was 79 degrees. it took time for someone to come up and fix and by that time- it was 3am.
The staff was friendly and responsive. The location was great. Bed and shower were very nice. The rooms were small and we were woken out by another guest coming home loudly at 3:30 am. However, it's NYC!
Small dimension Too much noise from the street.
Second time staying here in 3 months. Love the location and quality. Able to check in early and check out late this trip, which really helped our itinerary (was rushing into town to go straight to my workshop, so it was nice to check in quickly and be able to put bags in room instead of leaving with concierge). Also was able to upgrade to a king bed since my boyfriend came down with me last minute. Staff was super accommodating. Close to 1/2/3 and C/E trains, as well as a couple blocks from 6/N/R/Q/W trains, so it was easy to get around to east or west side. I'm a light sleeper and find these rooms to be on the quieter side (we were facing the back of hotel, which faces downtown). No fridge in room. Definitely a business feel to hotel, but didn't really make a difference to me. In fact, I chose the Sheraton bc in NYC hotels can vary widely and I found that chain hotels give a good consistent experience no matter the location.
This hotel has an attitude of over pricing everything, adding on fees including tips (that frankly aren't deserved) and having a staff that doesn't do much. When I checked out the man at the desk was flat out lying to the woman he had on the phone and when he hung up I said "Well she's going to be disappointed" and he smiled and laughed. That's what you're going to get here.
We like to stay in this hotel is clean and very friendly
My body was on west coast time and I tried to take a shower at 2am but there was no hot water. They also ding you an extra $5 for usable internet.
