Its ManhattanPros: The Location thats about it
For Manhattan the price was not bad Cons: Room is small
Walls are thin - loud hallways
No movies on demand
No full length mirror
No Room Service
Pros: Location and the food and bar area
Pros: Concierge- very helpful and friendlyCons: Front desk staff - apart from one individual, staff were like zombies going through only the essentials. To be fair this may be a volume issue as the front desk is very busy and the staff have to manage languages from all over the world, which I will admit is no easy job. This creates delays in the check in process creating impatient (and rude customers). I will say they did handle the whining of people checking in with professionalism.
Suggested solution - investigate peak period scheduling for front desk, specifically selecting staff with multiple languages
Great location, but noisiePros: 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.Cons: 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 $$.
cable sucksPros: locationCons: cable down grade sucks
Week-long visit!Pros: The hotel is in a fabulous location in the middle of the theater district. Once you step into the hotel the city smell is gone and replaced by a blast of fragrance. The lobby is wide and decorated nicely. The elevator system is very efficient with elevators going to certain floors. The room was comfortable enough for the 3 of us. Cons: They never have enough people working at the desk. There are always lines throughout the day. A desk for questions would be helpful. For a hotel with 1,331 rooms they need more than 2-3 people assisting guests.
Pros: I don't like itCons: Cause the room was dirty
Pros: The furniture and the look of the room was nice; very modern. Also seemed very clean. Priced reasonably. Cons: Check in took quite a while and when we got to the counter the employee said she was upgrading us but I don't believe that was the case because the room was very small. One very simple thing was that there was no full length mirror which does not help when I'm getting ready for my boyfriend's birthday dinner.
Pros: 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.Cons: Music in elevators very loud.
The room was to smallPros: 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
Pros: nice lobbyCons: check-in took WAY too long.
wallpaper in room was tacky
Meh..Pros: 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.
