10/10 Exceptional

Stunning rooms, just don’t expect 5 star service.
Fabulous new hotel on west 48TH street, just off of Times Square. We paid for a room with a balcony and it was magnificent! If you’ve stayed in nyc before, you’ll know that hotel rooms are usually tiny, this one was a good size, however, I would have expected that for the price! Beautiful decor, fabulous shower and bathroom and the biggest most comfiest bed I’ve ever slept in, in a hotel. I wasn’t particularly impressed with the basic cheap looking toiletries and there’s no kettle for tea lovers - but there’s a small coffee machine in the room. Loved that there was also a small fridge to store any items we needed in! Personally, The lobby lets the hotel down. It’s neither welcoming nor practical. Reception is actually on the second floor - with no signs or information at the front door. The door and reception staff - although nice enough - don’t seem particularly well trained and certainly not what I would expect from a 5 star facility. Perhaps this will improve as the hotel is open longer.

6/10 Good

Small details need looked at
I tried multiple times to contact the hotel before our stay via this app, and their online website directed email- no replies. Paper cups in the room were not great- especially not for the environment. Limited access to coffee in the room, and water was really poor for this standard of hotel. Perhaps house keeping just need a bit of social skill re- training. When we returned the maid was not too happy to vacate our room while I changed. The food in the restaurant was not great and the servers ground it difficult to deal with that. Good location but it’s the small attention to guests needs that was lacking.
