Nice position, good place to stay for shopping, city trip, and broadway shows. Nice view of the city from my room! room could be cleaner, average hotel staff, small room
We had a small suite and the room was very spacious, unlike many other NYC hotels. The bedding was not as luxurious as I would have liked. I could have used an extra blanket or two.
The location is perfect for shopping and sighseeing. Hotel has 2 restaurants serving good quality food. It has a spacious lobby with fast check in and out facilities. It offers security safes at no charge. Security is very strict in the lobby before you enter elevators which makes female travellers feel very safe. There are lots of really good restaurants nearby in 7th Avenue and en route to Times Square. I loved everything about the New Yorker. There is nothing bad about this hotel.
VERYy convenient location Rooms a little small - but they're only for sleeping in!!!
I have stayed at this hotel in numerous occasions and think its a good location . The front staff at the initial check in were the rudest staff I have ever met.I felt in this occasion they were despicable.I would therefore think very carefully before staying there again !
the fact that is in the centre of NY rooms are very small and avg 200 $/night is too much
the New Yorker hotel is in a perfect location for visiting and shopping and we really appreciate this. Maybe the difference of price according to the days of staying. they should make a special offer for those like us who stayed for an entire week.
Good location The hotel felt tired, although to be fair, work is being done to improve it
é um hotel histórico e muito bem localizado. Os quartos são limpos e tudo funcionando. O serviço de recepção é muito atencioso. Os quartos são pequenos, mas isso é comum em NY.
The only thing we liked about the hotel was the location. The rooms were very small and filthy dirty. The staff was really rude. It was difficult to understand the English of the people working at the front desk and some of them were nasty.
Good service, central location and not much noise. Missing Internet-café, as we did not bring the lap top with us.
This place is a zoo. The people working here were unpleasant. The lobby was stuffed full of people all the time. They charge $5 to keep your bags if you get there before 3 or to hold them until you leave. (Note - the guy working in the bag room was actually very nice, unlike everyone else who seemed terribly bothered by things like checking us in). The tub in our room was peeling so badly it looked like a crime scene. The bed was like a board. The 2 pillows on the bed were the thinnest pillows I've ever seen. The lobby was nice (except the 100 people who seemed to be perpetually camped out in it), but the rooms haven't been updated since 1911. God forbid you need to call the desk for something. There are many lovely boutique hotels and options nearby. Stay away from this one.
The doors locked Took over an hour to check in, and out?!?!? The rooms were gross.
The only good thing about this hotel is its location
The only thing I can save from my stay was the location, it's not far from places of sightseeing and they have a metro station right in front of the hotel but that's the only thing I can think of. The hotel is just awful, the staff is just unfriendly and very rude, I had a problem with one of the employees and they could even apologize even do they almost ruin my hole stay there. The room is just sad, is very very small, so dirty and the bed will make you cry, we had to sleep over the bed because the sheets and everything was just disgusting. Really don't stay here is not worth it and you are going to regret booking here, I did...
Absolutely nothing. It was, by far, the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Rooms are from the 80's. Dirty and smell like cigarettes. Staff is unfriendly unwilling to answer the most simple of questions. The valet service is a joke. It took us 1.5 hours to get our vehicle back when we checked out.
Leaving If only this site would allow me to add pictures... The room was the most disgusting four walls I have ever laid eyes on. It stunk of sewage and there was something dried that was dripping down the walls, TV (from 1982) and the window. It was absolutely horrendous. The manager was rude and dismissive when I informed him of the situation. The maids attempted to enter our room twice within 10 minutes at 9 AM without any attempt to warn us. This hotel made a terrible terrible end to an otherwise great trip. Shame on them for their complete lack of anything resembling customer service or a freaking sponge or can of paint. Disgusted
Location Mold in bathroom. Uncomfortable bed. Thin towels. Mentioned to staff they said that's what you get when reservation are made on kayak.
Location Outdated rooms, slowness to check and out, limit on towels no bath clothes, issue with elevator
The location was convenient and it was easy to get to all different places around the city. The rooms could use a bit of updating but we were not in that much. Just to sleep.
Bell Hop took bags to room. I gave a $10 dollar tip for 10 minutes of his time. He looked at me and asked.."Really only $10 that is all my time is worth to you"? It was my first time in New York so I took back the $10 and gave him $20. I was later told by other staff the Ball Hop was in the wrong and that I should have taken his name and reported him. Rooms were ok at best. Not super clean.
Staff was very unconcerned with complaints Had to have clothing sent to laundry to be decontaminated due to bedbugs-they lost some of my items. While they did comp our room due to bedbugs, the manager has yet to respond to my complaint of lost items and additional expenses. I was promised that my clothing would be returned within a the day-took 2 days. i had to buy a winter coat (as mine was sent out for decontamination). still waiting to be reimbursed.
Nothing. I would recommend kayak remove this hotel from their booking options. It was rated 4.5 out of 5 stars and was the worst hotel I have ever seen. I travel all the time and use you guys to book flights etc. This was my first experience booking a hotel and I will never utilize the service again. I am having to battle with you guys to get money back for a place that was so low quality we didn't feel safe sleeping there. We encountered serious issues upon arrival. We looked at two different rooms and decided due to the condition of the hotel and the utter disarray of the rooms that we could not stay there. We are working back trying to get our money back as we had to make other sleeping arrangements.
close to penn station I stayed for 4 nights. very loud and i'm talking about car trucks passing by it's people banging on trash cans and construction. The hotel is next door to a police station. room are good size but decor is modern cheap looking with dispensers for shampoo and body wash glued in the shower. I would not stay there again.
I didnt like anything about it. I reserve a room with 2 Queen Size bed when we get there it wasn't reserve for us awful experience the man in the front desk he suggest his going to look for another hotel but we were so tired we just need to relax.
LOVED the place. By far the best value in the city! the room was perfect for our family! The bar and lounge in the lobby ROCKED! Roman, the bartender was great! The entire staff was super friendly! 5 STARS !!
Great value! We had an enjoyable weekend visit to NYC with a group of friends. We stayed in a Premium Room with 2 Queen beds, and a pull-out sofa. It also had a mini-fridge and wet bar area. The room was huge, clean, and very comfortable with tons of windows. The location of the hotel was convenient to our weekend plans at MSG. Hotel lobby staff was friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and would certainly recommend it to friends.
The location is awesome! The cleanliness and comfort of the room fit my needs well Front staff in evening is less than eager to communicate about the room availability and rates. I reserved the room via Kayak and the concept seemed foreign to the staff.
Front desk was wonderful, just things beyond their control occurred. Shower in our room squirted from wall even after repair man tried to fix, had to change rooms, delay in getting extra towels from housekeeping--the biggest and most noticeable is the cleaning staff does not know how to properly clean a room, wood floors not swept in rooms and the space between glass showers and sink have never been cleaned--whole bars of used soap, hair ties, wrappers and etc in the space-- just totally gross-- room 306!! They really need a lesson in how to clean a room!!!
Close to subway stop A lot of noise in room hardwood floors and thin walls, makes for a noisy experience especially with the exit doors being slammed by housekeeping all day. Could hear full conversations in the rooms from neighbors
I like the new trend of wood floors, as used here. Seems cleaner. The rooms are very attractive, but less functional than others. The beds are very comfortable. There are lots of places to plug in devices (regular outlets and USB) in several places. Elevators are plentiful and efficient. Loved having a Keurig coffeemaker. I interacted little with staff, but all I encountered in the hallways were friendly. A little off the beaten track, which is good in the city. And right next to a police precinct, which made me feel extra safe. There was no drawer-storage in my room (the closet is elevated, so you can put things on the floor of that, plus belowe the closet are two cubbies - one with the iron/board and one with a safe, but not really convenient for clothing). There was no countertop space in the bathroom for cosmetics, etc. No minibar, which is a sign of 4* and up, to me. And all that is provided are paper coffee cups. Some people may like that they may be cleaner, but I like glass glasses, and ceramic cups. Since I brought a bottle of wine, I asked in the bar if I could have a wine glass to take to my room and the bartender said he wasn't allowed to give one to me. I had a problem turning my TV off with the remote (it would just come back on) and a late night call to the front desk was no help ("Just turn the volume all the way down.") I eventually found a power button on the TV, but the desk clerk should have suggested that. At check-in, the clerk was not unfriendly, but when he handed me my keycard, he didn't really explain anything about the facility (breakfast, etc.) like people usually do.
I have stayed at the Tryp several times (perhaps 8-10x) over the past few years. Overall, the room size is good, price is good, nice little bar downstairs. Decent accommodations for the money. The staff was so horrible this time around. Just overall not accommodating. There was no hot water on the coldest day of the year. My husband took a freezing cold shower and the just put their hands up like oh well!
The best service and kindness help from the front desk lady impressed me , as the door keys were not working she took us to our room personally,
The hotel has a lot of things going for it, judging by our recent visit. The property is very clean, the location close to Times Square and Hell's Kitchen is convenient, and there is a subway stop on the same block. The room was very spacious and comfortable. All in all, it was a great stay. The only thing to point out is if you're a light sleeper, earplugs may be needed. We were on the ninth floor but could still hear cars blowing their horns and there is a police station next door, so sirens can frequently be heard.
The bed was so comfortable! The location was very central. No business center and no pool.
Friendly staff and comfort of the bed! Tax additions to bill
The restaurant was nice, good food The room was never properly cleaned. I stayed for 6 nights and the room was never fully cleaned. The bathroom mirrors had the same smears the entire stay, the floor was dusty and hairy and I saw the same piles of dirt from day one. The glass shower wall had a soap scum that remained the entire time as did the bathtub. The entire room was dusty and never saw any of it cleaned. And I'm quite certain my sheets weren't even changed daily. I believe the cleaning crew only changed towels and made the bed. I also asked that they did not leave the a/c on 65 each day and i continued to return to an ice box daily!
Love Kimpton, the hotels and service are always top notch. Looking forward to staying here again. Having to leave the hotel was a bummer
Nice modern rooms. Great location. Food carts one block away at Greely Sq.
Very kind and attentive staff. Nice and clean room. Excellent location for us. Quite expensive. None.
Great hotel. Friendly staff. Great location. I gave this hotel an "okay" because of what seemed to be chaos in the kitchen. I would order an item, the friendly person on the other end would say ok. But...wait for it...each time I ordered and confirmed my food items, I received a call back telling me they are out of at least one of what I'd ordered.
Nothing Rude Staff, small and dirty (smelly) rooms, expensive as all hell. Not worth it
Concierge was fantastic. Restaurants were great. Vibe was relaxing and cool.
after renovation, but with some scratches already; friendly staff really cares; fitness room; complimentary tea and coffee every morning; safe and nice; great view from deluxe room expensive, but very standard, breakfast; windows need to be cleaned; at this price I would expect the room to be larger; I would prefer more light in the room
Location near Penn Station, wonderful receptionists, especially Victoria, perfect room and view
The room was fairly large for NYC. Contemporary decor in an old hotel. Great location for Penn Station/Amtrak. Shower was TINY, and bathroom had little space for touletries. Air conditioning was loud , but helped to block out the constant horn blowing most of the night. Make sure to get a room away from the street!
Location /to some extent/ price Noise level - VERY hard to sleep [they even provide earplugs in the room!] Services
The staff appreciates the customer and will do their best to accomodate. The building has character and distinguished. Our suite was perfect with a to die for view. Time square
Big room that was immaculately clean. Have stayed here before, will stay here again. Communications between staff on phone and staff at desk unclear. Told no pet fee, then at checkin told $100 per pet!!!
Location close to subway and bus stops. Room and hotel was clean. Desk attendant was helpful. Beware of sketchy parking garage beside hotel!! We parked our car at the Park and Lock on 31st street. (Close by) Room was very small but clean. It was a bit expensive for what it was.
Got to be the downtown location. Half a block from Madison Square Garden, a short stroll to Times Square, subway in easy reach. Staff were professional and fast.. Security was good-a doorman plus a requirement to use your room keycard to access the guest floors on the elevator. Room bright and clean, and a comfortable bed. Lots of restaurants/bars in easy reach. Overnight parking garage right off the entrance-have to hand over your car to attendant and he'll park it/bring it back to you. Not cheap, but downtown parking never is. The windows didn't have a clean seal, so there was a constant low-level draft through them and some street noise leaking in. On a cool spring day no issue, but imagine it would be VERY chilly in winter, and wonder if summer would make it a war between A/C and the leak. Bathroom TINY-one person can stand in it, and basically rotate in place-sink to toilet to shower. The shower was also very cramped-not one for the claustrophobic.
Location and price Checking in at 5:00 PM was delayed by an hour. Using valet took over an hour to get the car
Too much money for such a mediocre room. It supposed to be a non-smoking room but in reality it smelled to weed. Very disappointing experience especially having the kids there. I reserved two rooms and arrived at 4:00, there was only one room available and we had to wait for the other one almost 3 hours.
Convenient location Rooms were gross, carpet needs to be cleaned, there were dust balls in the room
The staff was excellent. The lobby is gorgeous and I love the fruit infused water there. They gave me a free upgrade and the view was stunning as well as the lighting design, environmental graphics - comfort of pillows and bed, shower... Made my visit special and I was able to leave my suitcase while I walked around.
Loved the location across the street from Penn Station- front desk staff was friendly and efficient- all staff was friendly and acknowledged us whether we were walking in or down a hallway- it was refreshing. Room was very clean and spacious. I think we had a king- limited view. Loved being on 7th Ave- we walked straight up7th to Times Square and straight down 7th to Greenwich Village. So many excellent restaurants within 3 blocks. Also loved that the lobby was not hectic-crazy-busy like some of the Times Square hotels can be. I would have liked a lobby bar. Always fun to sit and people watch. There is a bar/restaurant but it's through a set of (glass) doors off the lobby. I can think of nothing else that would have improved our 3 nights here.
Would not stay here or recommend to colleagues Thermostat did not work and response was poor to fix it. Sent me to new room which was very noisy and had a dirty bed.
I booked this hotel because of its location. The hotel did not have the room I was upgraded to. The hallways and the room offered to me looked well used and not particularly clean. And, there were no hot water at the hotel. I decided against staying in and moved to a different hotel.
Bed was comfy Location was great Room service was good and quick Too much noise on my floor/too many kids Bathroom smelled like a wet rag Elevators took a long time
1, value for money 2. location 3. quiet by NY standards 4. Gym 5. free WI-FI 6. coffee machine in room 7. safe in room 1. no complimentary water bottle (this should cost the hotel no more than $0.20 / bottle) 2. I am a Hilton's Rewards member, but because I booked through Kayak, I did not get credited by Hilton for my points for the stay. Also, I normally would get high speed internet through my Hilton's Rewards, but that too, was not available. I find the above two items annoying for a frequent traveler & petty on Hilton's part. With the plethora of hotel options in NYC, it is just too time consuming not to use a "hotel search engine".
Everything Sometimes a wait for elevators but not a big deal
I didn't like the service. I didn't get the room I reserved. This hotel is horrible and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Staff was excellent. Bar was golden after we got to the hotel from both exploring and enyoing the city. Concierge was great! Plenty of places around to eat including the hotel. Nice view with a glimpse of the Empire from our room. Rooms were clean, a little cramped, but its NYC. The staff (maids) tends to be forgetful about simple items like toilet paper or anything to stir coffee with! Location its a mix, depending on the line needed. Sometimes we went to 34th ST in order to get some other line.
Located on a quiet side street but still within walking distance to many attractions. Plenty of subway stops within a block or two that will take you to any destination you want. Staff was super friendly and inviting. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean. Close to Megabus drop-off location. Room was bigger than I thought it would be given the location. There was an iron and hairdryer in the room, but no mini fridge (which wasn't necessary for our short stay). There are some things out of the control of the hotel; construction around the area and trash left in the street for city pickup didn't make walking for the most pleasant walking experience. There were coffee stains on the nightstand lampshade and the carpet could use a good cleaning or replacement. Not sure what the parking situation is as we took the bus.
Everything was great
Location and staff Space. Felt packed. But understand for this location.
Location was convenient. The hotel was very VERY dirty. The bathroom was left extremely dirty and moldy and the employees were unprofessional
Close to everything walking, they staff was great very informative about the area, and very helpful with everything I needed. Would definitely stay there on my next trip to NYC!!
Great location! We were a short walk to a metro station, Highline and empire state building. Great food options nearby. Room was clean, although small. Kids had a great time. And they loved getting a cookie everyday! We also had a view of the one world trade center. There wasn't a fridge, which would have been helpful, but the room was small, so I can see how they couldn't fit it in.
We got our cookie, so we had that going for us... which was nice. Staff was curt and unwilling to accommodate a booking error that occurred. It didn't really seem like my business mattered much there. Won't be making any future reservations here.
I can't say enough about how friendly the staff was!! Amazing Small rooms , but that's typical of many Manhattan hotels
The staff was above and beyond professional, courteous,and thoughtful. The room was comfortable, very clean, and just the right size for a weekend get away with my grandson. He was very impressed and "wowed" -and for an eight year old that was all that mattered! That we only had two nights to spend!
The staff at the DoubleTree South Times Square is AWESOME! Friendly, helpful, bent over backwards to make my stay comfortable. Small room, ice machines not on every floor. SLOW elevators!
Great Location, comfy bed, staff was very nice and friendly. Linen was dirty no complimentary items in bathroom one face towel in bathroom no water to make coffee Early morning construction no fridge in room small room
Coffee at the lobby came out so late in the morning.
Got in late after the Bruce Springsteen concert and the front desk associate gave my friend and I each a bottle of water. Extra cookies on check out -- which are amazing by the way! Issue with two blow dryers.
For the cost I don't see how you can charge what you do for these rooms when you can stay at the one at Times Square for the same amount and have a suite. You can barely walk by another person in these rooms. You charge WAY TOO MUCH for them!!!
We were there during the blizzard and the staff did a great job, especially like the restaurant!!!
Misinformation from concierge on where to park when we arrived at midnight. Construction noise outside our window all night with no warning or apology from hotel staff. Place is pretty crowded and dingy. Was not aware that Hilton did not give points if booked through kayak
Comfy bed with soft sheets, nice staff The ice machine didn't work
Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was good sized with a large shower, but there was virtually no counter space and it was impossible to use the faucet and sink without splashing water outside the sink. The room had almost no drawer space. Two narrow and deep drawers and one letter drawer. Closet also very small. If you are staying more than a day or two, you will have to still live our of your suitcase. Speaking of suit cases - no place to put them to get them out of the way. Very poorly designed room/bathroom/furniture for counter space and drawers. Broken safety rail in shower - very dangerous! Nice breakfast - but constantly running out of plates, bowls, etc.
El servicio es excelente, como también las facilidades. La realidad es que me encantó todo. Vuelvo a quedarme aqui.
I love it! That's all I have to say! The best move I made all weekend! No Pool
I was really pleased about the accommodations on the hotel. Full kitchen was really useful. Personnel was kind in general (as long as a problem did not arise). I did not like the eggs for breakfast. Couple of packages were not received by hotel.
Location was excellent for us and staff were friendly and professional. Although we did not use the little kitchen area, i like that it is available. place was clean and only 2 blocks away from subway. Door bell sounds like an alarm. Told the cleaning staff not to clean our room but did not listen and our things ended up on the floor. Also need more choices for breakfast.
Friendly Staff,very polite,respectful,helpful Ice bucket plastic bag not replaced, water left in ice bucket, glasses not replaced, used same glasses two days, bathroom floor long black hairs, bath towel not replaced,
I booked and fully prepaid a double with two beds over six weeks in advance. The payment was to Amoma and the voucher was from Kayak. According to the hotel's front desk staff, a different booking request was receiived, for one bed, from Hotel Beds two weeks later. Hotel was full so we had to share a bed. We did not receive what we booked and paid for. I want a full refund and more.
Friendly staff Room too small (Size of college dorm room) Room too noisy from street below Saw flies and gnats on danishes in restaurant area Price EXTREMELY too high for size of room Old air conditioning system that was very loud
The hotel space is modern is clean. The staff were friendly during every interaction. A nice gym and outdoor patio to boot. The shower water pressure was acceptable but could have been stronger.
Every staff member we encountered was beyond courteous and helpful. Very well ran. Would definitely stay here again. Convenient short walk to Javitz for show. Did not try food services or bar.
Great location. Breakfast was excellent. Comfortable rooms, very clean.
Location was good. No bar or restaurant
Early check in was wonderful. I was able to put my bag in the room and freshen up before attending my LANDMARK SEMINAR next door. Rooms are tiny tiny but clean with luxury basics. Pool/whirlpool/sauna would be greatly appreciated. Breakfast excellent. Thank you. Room rates high end. Beds are full sized or small queens so Bed-sharing not real option if you want total cpmfort.
Front Desk Staff very friendly and curteous Room did not smell fresh and there were only hand towels the first night of my stay
The hotel was perfectly adequate for my business stay, very comfortable and clean at a great price.
Breakfast spread was above average, the roof top bar was very good -- great views. Rooms were comfortable and bathrooms were in good. Lots of school groups, so the lobby was always a zoo. Probably not an issue except during summer.
The staff is incredibly professional and helpful. The bathrooms are a bit small, but this is not unusual for New York.
Awesome location. Very close to 2 subway stations. Rooms were super clean! I loved the fact that there was no carpet in the rooms. Very modern decor. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. The rooftop bar was super cool. 5 star rating!!!!!
The location of the hotel was convenient. The hotel is advertised as a suite and only provides standard rooms with no separate seating area. FALSE ADVERTISEMENT AND IMAGES!
We received excellent customer service checking in and out, and no difficulty in getting a late 12 Noon checkout. The room could have been a bit cleaner, there was some residue all over the bathroom floor, cracks to the mirror in the bathroom.
Newer hotel in great location. Beautiful rooftop bar. Small -- but functional -- bathroom.
the service by the hotel manager, reception and all other members that we met was beyond our expectation. They care about the guests and looking to provide the best service. The rooms are clean and modern and felt very specious the location is excellent the shower water flow was weak.
Modern, nicely appointed rooms, great bed. Good location, nice rooftop lounge. Fantastic staff. Food was not very good. But service, especially hotel employee, was great.
Nice location. Close to subway. Wonderful view of one world center at night from rooftop bar No
Close to subway station and different restaurants! Staff was very friendly and helpful with everything. They even hold your baggage on your checkout date so you can spend more time in NYC until you leave. Rooms are clean!I will definitely stay here again! It met everything we needed!
Comfortable beds & room, A+++ staff,excellent location for our purpose. Only complaint was that the air conditioning was not working properly. Gave the illusion you were in control and did its own thing. Therefore, room was too warm at night.
Brand new hotel w/modern amenities, spacious King room w/fridge, micro-wave, safe, large flat screen TV w/ SHOWTIME channels, and free Wi-Fi. Good, reasonably prices food in Bistro. Short (less than 1 blk) walk to #1 subway. Long wait for food in Bistro. Despite being fairly quiet for a busy cross-town street, can still hear some over-night and early AM garbage trucks from 9th fl.
Clean, quite , and great location!!! Maybe couple more drawers for clothing.
Nice touches were that the lobby had a water dispenser with fresh fruits in the water and cookies were served at the lobby at certain times. Staff was attentive to our needs. Broken shower head- sprayed from the base. Tight quarters with barely enough room to move luggage for 3.
It was a very basic hotel and rooms were on the small size, but it was exactly what we needed. We loved that there was a microwave and fridge in the room. Clean. Small clean lobby. Staff were generally very friendly. Nothing.
The hotel was in a great location for sight seeing and the sub way. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean. The beds were very comfortable. Although the breakfast was an "all you could eat". I thought $16.50 was a little over priced
Everything was 100% perfect. Room was clean, bathroom was clean, view was nice. Staff was friendly and accommodating with our luggage needs etc. I chose to be on the highest floor to get the best view and we heard loud music coming from down the street or somewhere outside as we were going to bed. It eventually stopped, and no one complained of not getting a good night's sleep due to it.
This was my first stay at Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea. I like everything about this hotel. Location is very good in mid-town Manhattan close to shops, clubs, bars.The customer service was ok. The room was big, very clean & comfortable.If you are in a mood for a Playboy TV channel it's free you can watch it in your room. I was on 19th floor the city view was ok nothing special. I will recommend this hotel to my friends & family. From 0-10 I'll give 9++++. Check-in is at 3pm. I arrived at 3:30 pm and my room was not ready I had to wait for 15 minutes in a lobby.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean room. Tasty free coffee in the lobby. Good sound proof wall so that we did not get bothered by young group's loud chatting next door through night. The only issue was the noise of the air conditioner heater.
Chose this hotel for the price/location. Obviously you don't exactly get what you're paying for in NYC, but it was a clean hotel that was just that, nothing special. They slap you with a $50 resort fee without telling you - was told I had no extra charges at checkout, and saw the charge on my credit card later.
The location on 28th Street is very central and convenient. One of the elevators didn't seem to be working very well and the other was very slow. Luckily I was on the 2nd floor, so I took the stairs, which were clean and well lit. It was pouring rain when I arrived and the front desk had no umbrellas to lend. It was also very loud from street noise in my room. Inside from the hallway was quiet, even though I was near the elevator.
wifi did not work in my room - weak intermittent signal
Cleanliness of rooms and hotel as a whole. More attentive front desk staff. Assisted others before ourselves and other guests who were clearly lined up first.
For New York this was a pretty good size room with 2 queen beds.
Customer service, reservation team and management all were pretty terrible. Provided no accomodation for a change or adjustment in reservation. In addition the front desk person was rude and abrupt when nobody else was even in the lobby. I left this hotel and went right next door to the cleaner and friendlier Hotel Indigo.
