It's all about the location with this hotel. For the price paid the location was fantastic. Room was a good size for central NYC. Bathroom was surprisingly spacious! Bed was ok, a bit soft for me, but that's a personal preference.
Very, very hot in the room and no way to open a window or turn on the air con. I know I went in December, but it was mild weather and the heating was just too high for the temperature outside. The staff do not want any interaction, which surprised me as normally I have to fend off over enthusiastic hotel staff. Even when you walked in the door, they did not even look up. Having to pay to store luggage is ridiculous, what sort of service is that. But I guess you get what you pay for and for all the negatives, the location is what you paying for.
Great location. One minute from Times Square. Had a back room that was very snug and quiet. Good respite from the busy city.’
Decoré is a little tired
Central hotel, old but clean and comfortable This was my 2nd time there and again I was not disappointed. It is 1mn from Time Square, less than 10mn from Rockefeller and very close to numerous subway lines.
