Claustrophobics beware - get room on upper floors

Pros: Nice employees
Cons: No follow up
Location: It's NYC!!
Initially, we were assigned a room on the 5th floor that was more like a dungeon - when you raised the window shades we face a electrical equipment and a blank wall. My wife is slightly claustrophobic and we requested a room change. We were moved to a room on the 8th floor which was much better. The minibar fridge was hot and despite reporting it, nothing was done! The AC blower was very noisy so had to turn it off - and thank God for cool days and nights in April end in NYC. Luckily, we used the room only for sleeping at night so we put up with it.

Excellent location, great value!

Pros: Location, ambiance and setting
Cons: I requested a second comforter for our bed and we were given a lightweight blanket-a little disappointing,
Location: Outstanding location. On a scale of 1-10, a 10.
When we arrived, we were greeted by a very professional gentleman at the front desk who quickly checked us in to our room (and upgraded us to a king size bed that was not available at the time of booking, we were thrilled!). The room was clean and well kept. The lobby area was very welcoming. The lounge is a perfect choice for this hotel. The value for this hotel is outstanding! I would definitely come back next time I have plans to be in New York City!

Nice hotel within walking distance of everything

Pros: Great design, excellent staff
Cons: A bathroom door that shuts all the way, quieter AC
Location: We were able to walk to everything! Central Park, Rockafeller Center, Broadway, Etc. The Brooklyn Bridge and Staten Island Ferry are short rides awa
I had stayed in this location years ago and was eager to come back. The staff was amazing! I was disappointed that the surprise I had ordered my husband from their amenities site was not in our room at check in, but they did get it fixed quickly. Something was off with their cable. My husband had to keep messing with the cables to get ESPN, which wouldn't have mattered as much if it hadn't been the opening weekend of football season. Their bath products are amazing! Though, it would have been nice to have a bathroom door that shut all the way. In a room that small, there is something be to said for keeping the mystery.
