Great location for theatre goers. Steps from theatres but not smack in the middle of Time Square craziness

Hotel is in a good location and it is clean. The beds/pillows were very uncomfortable. The shower flooded into the bathroom. They did come and fix it after a couple of hours so the second day showers were better without flooding. In addition, the alarm went off around 10-11 pm for a long time. For approximately 1/2 hour, nobody knew what to do as there was no direction. Then, suddenly, there were a series of announcements that lasted yet another half hour. Further, The prices that I saw on travelocity for which I selected this room was very different then the price when I arrived and far more then just the daily taxes. I don't think I will work with travelocity or riu ever again.

The hotel itself is beautiful no complaints however the bathroom is a little odd with the frosted glass doors so you can definitely see the outline and shadow of the other person using the bathroom and showering. Wasn’t a huge issue just a little strange. The room itself was a decent size especially for New York City. Perfect for 2 people anymore maybe a little tight. The bellhop gentleman were extremely nice and helpful however the front desk ladies were a little rude and lastly one thing I found a little strange you have to keep your room key hooked up to get electricity in the room. Which would of been fine but no one told us that upon checking in so we were lost and got no response when trying to contact front desk luckily a nice man repairing something in the hall way helped us. Also when it was almost 100degress out we clearly left the card in so the air conditioning would stay running and the house keeping took it out so we walked in to an extremely hot room and melted treats we had left in there. For the price of the hotel stay I would think they would let you keep your air running! But all in all it was a beautiful place and I would recommend it to it a friend these few odd things wasn’t enough to make me Not wanna stay there again

good location

Pros: clean and helpfull
Cons: nothing
Location: theatres, restaurant and other activities close by.
It was fine, except for the shuttle service you arranged. I waited 1 hr at La G and than the driver told me he could not get to the hotel but would drop me off 3 blocks away, which turned out to be 10 blocks!! Than they were 45 minutes late to pick me up, so I had to get a cab to the La G airport. I feel I am due a refund of this super(not so!!) shuttle!!!

staff questioned my sister who was staying with us about whether she was registered at hotel after seeing her outside smoking. Interesting that she was questioned but no others who were also outside smoking when they reentered the hotel.
