    Superb

    The hotel was near of all attractions of NYC. (Central Park, Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, 5th.Avenue....). Kind staff. Wonderfull view from 40th floor and we didn't hear any noice from the streets. The room was cleaned every day and we liked the breakfast. Very comfortable beds !

    The equipment of bathroom needs reconstruction and the furniture of the room could be more modern. The porter required tip for luggage.

    The Room was Specious as seen in the Pictures and the Double Bed was Large enough also as seen in the pictures.

    The Receptionists were very Distant. Not very Helpful and always moody. Not willing to answer questions always looking at their computer not maintaining eye conduct in order not to answer question.Very Very rude. Breakfast was very very poor Comparing to the price you pay.

    Location

    There wasn't a 24 hour concierge. This meant that when we wanted to change a car booking (as the wrong time had been booked - 3.30pm instead of 3.30am) the evening before we were due to leave, there was no one who could help us. Therefore we had to flag down a taxi the next morning and then phone the hotel later to cancel the car booking so that we wouldn't be charged when it turned up 12 hours late.

    Location is excellent.

    Our bathroom was not as clean as I had expected. Bathtub needs improvement. When we arrived, we were told we have two reservations with total of four room when we actually we only have two rooms for two nights.

    Very good

    The hotel is well located, downtown but also in a quiet zone.Good rooms nice beds, clean, good bathroom. A 24hours drugstore where you can find everything on the corner just 50 meter from Hotel was perfect to buy beverages and snaks.

    Even having adviced in advance that we are arriving late (1:00 am) we do not got the room we have reserved and one of my soons needed to speed on the sofa. It was claimed and this night was not needed to be paid. The management was nice but reception people were not nice (no patient)
