    Surprisingly quiet location for being in NYC
    We have visited NYC several times and quite often the rooms in hotels in NYC are small. So we (a family of 3) were happy to see that our room was big. We could actually opened our 2 big suitcases and still have plenty of space to walk around in the room. Very close to Central Park, which was ideal for a morning run when we wanted to do so. The pool in this hotel is quite small and was crowded during our stay. Facilities are quite dated but everything works well. I would have given a better rating for this hotel but we had such bad and rude service on the day we checked out. We needed to keep our luggage in the left luggage room as our flight was at night. We were told to take it to another room and when we took it there, we were told it is the wrong room. The chap was so surly and marched us through the crowded lobby. He was unpleasant and so rude to us.

    Poor 2.0
    A few problems..
    Great location, but quite a few major problems with my deluxe king corner room that I paid quite a bit of money for. Firstly, the toilet would not flush. I requested a mechanic come into fix it and he was up there within 5 min and worked on the toilet for maybe 15 min. He didn’t fix anything. Still wouldn’t flush. The room was very cold and after finding the fairly difficult to find switches for it, all you could really do what turn it off. The biggest problem though was seeing a mouse run across my room the first night I was there. I saw it scurry across the room and under my suitcase. Wasn’t sure what it was until I lifted up my suitcase to look and then it ran in between my legs back under the bed. I couldn’t ever find it after that which was also quite alarming.
