In order to save my employer some much needed cash, I opted for the cheapest room, which was described as a "single room". In reality the bed would have been big enough for two, but it was the only thing that was. The bathroom was so small, it compared unfavourably with a bathroom I'd had a year or so ago on a major cruise ship. I couldn't use the shower without banging elbows, knees or other parts of my anatomy and in virtually every shower I had I ended up turning the water off by mistake at least once.
Other fundamental problems - poor soundproofing, such as this morning at 05:00 when some delightful fellow guest decided to turn his TV on for 45 minutes. Worse than that, though - this is yet another hotel built over a subway station. Not a distant rumble or a slight vibration here, but a deep, sonorous rumbling which shook the bottles in the minibar and the hangers in the wardrobe.
Other than that, the place was OK - a nice restaurant, friendly staff (particularly Raj in the bar) and an excellent location (see comments re the subway above!) and if I had enjoyed a room built for an only slightly overweight person rather than the cupboard conversion I did book then I would probably have rated it much higher - but I can only review what I experienced against my needs and preferences...
