Couldn’t open drapes for security purpose from 8-5 working on the facade of the side of the hotel where I was staying it was alright though. Nice location just one bus ride to time square and about a block away to the grand central station

The hidden “destination fee”. Is utter crap. Got charges $28/day for absolutely nothing. I supposedly would have gotten $20 credit for dry cleaning that i didnt need; $25 for drinks in their overpriced restaurant that i didnt want to go to. Crazy rip off tactic

Had a great stay and the location was excellent. The staff was very helpful with questions about the city. One drawback was the gentleman working the restaurant in the morning prepared our bagels with no gloves on or use of tongs. We just threw them away.
