Location!!Incredible location!Very close to central park,shopping center,M.opera,M.museum and many others NYC attractions.Historical beautiful building,security in the entry,clean towels every day,well equipped gym,fast elevators,relatively low price.
I stayed on the 9th floor. Very poor room facilities, Dirty and stuck windows: I couldn't open the windows to ventilate the room, I asked the staff to repair it but nobody even moved his finger to do it.I spent almost two weeks in the stuffy box. The sinks in the bathroom there are on the level of my knees (I'm not a tall person), so you should always crouch or lean heavily to wash your hands or face. One of the three shower cabins is constantly not working.
Gym, swimming pools and stuff
The restrooms were filthy.
The location is great and it’s safe for a female solo traveller to head back late at night. There were many people out and about even at midnight (the city truly never sleeps)! The rooms with semi-private bathroom also mean lesser rooms sharing one bathroom, and there was never once did I have to queue to use it.
The staff wasn’t very friendly and the cleanliness of the toilet could be improved (though it is highly dependent on the user). The doors and walls are pretty thin so you could hear noises from the corridor which may pose as a problem to some. Otherwise, it was a great stay for the price.
I like the location's vicinity to the city's attractions and the beautiful historic architecture in and around this location.
Check in time felt a little long and there were several instances of excessive noise from other patrons that either kept me up or woke me up.
Clean, suitable rooms for short- to medium-term stays. Location near Central Park. Comfortable bed.
Restroom was a fairly long walk away. Wifi reception was sometimes weak and/or had interruptions. Elevators sometimes slow / low capacity.
