After waiting for over an hour to check in at the front desk, the manager on duty proceeded to to us that they were over booked and don’t have a room for us. His attitude was very rude. He said he can either give us a a room with one bed and a cot for three grown men ( original booking was for two double beds). Or call Travelocity to cancel the booking. Which what I did. There for I would not recommend this hotel at all.

Quite arguably the worst experience I’ve ever had. Don’t let being near Times Square or MSG fool you. My room had bloody pillows, used/unflushed toilet. AC didn’t work and probably never been dusted since it’s opening in 1919. Just don’t do it.

The Location was amazing!! Check-In was the worst; the express checkin did not work and the wait to see the staff to check in took 37 mins and where in no hurry to assist and had attitudes to match. The room was decent not super clean but expected with older rooms, using the number to call any staff was a waste (never got a hold of anyone). Express checkout was great. It took only 2 mins.

Hotel looks impressive initially but run down and kind of dirty inside. When checking in they only had 2 people so it took almost on hour in line.

Location was good - close to train and subway. But the room was awful. The people loitering in lobby and front of hotel were seedy! The price was a draw but I will be more discriminate in the future. Will not be back here again.
