Vintage appearance meets modern amenities
This is a great hotel. It's location is fantastic, right across the street form Lincoln Center. The rooms are clean and reflect a great restoration connecting a vintage appearance with modern amenities. The restaurant in the building is great too. I'll stay here again.

2/10 Poor

Worst hotel- bed bug
Just terrible. Although we suffer bed bag, they charge us full amount and no apologies. They kept us 30min in the reception to check bed bug and found bed bag, but no apologies. Further we agreed to cancel all, but they charge us afterwards. We would like to request compensation for suffering bedbugs.

8/10 Very good

Friendly staff
The staff was notably friendly, helpful and happy. Tommy at the front desk always greeted us with a smile and assisted us with a room change. The hotel itself is a bit tired, the air conditioning was not very efficient and paint job in some areas needed repairs. But it suited our purpose and would consider staying there again.

8/10 Very good

First trip to NYC
Hotel was posh looking and boutique feeling. Meaning the rooms were dark. Everything was clean. The safe in the room didn't work. The pool was closed after Labour Day, not noted when I booked. This was disappointing especially as a pool was one of my search criteria. The location was excellent, not too expensive, but in a safe, close to subway and the action of downtown.

4/10 Fair

When we checked it we were offered a free upgrade by the person at the desk however would need to wait 30 minutes. We declined as we just wanted to rest. Once we got to our room, it was freezing with no ability to adjust the AC unit, the TV was broken and when trying to call from the phone, the cord was frayed an almost ripped out of the phone. I was able to contact the front desk and say that I wanted the upgrade and was heading downstairs to get a new room. I was in essence told I was a liar, there was no upgrade for me, but they would give me a new room. The rooms were both gross, not cleaned under the beds, and spray on the pictures in the rooms. The room also needed significant repair. It is crazy that is what so sub par considering the cost.
