Good courteous staff. Responsive service. Great location. Very small room, view was of another hotel's hall way, bathroom Shower pressure was too low for me.
This hotel is in the quieter part of midtown Manhattan which I found refreshing. If you are spending the weekend in Manhattan fighting through foot traffic in Time Square, it is always nice to be able to retire to a quieter area (once businesses close for the day).
It's sitting right on a Subway line which is great and there are Taxis waiting in the mornings so it's not so quiet at night that you have to walk forever to get to public transportation.
It was on the small side which I guess should be expected given that this is Manhattan. Internet access was free which is not always the case at 4-star(?) hotels. There was no view from my room and the adjacent property was close enough so that I was able to make eye contact with people in it. All in all, the room was modern, well-laid out but again, very tiny.
Well, it only had a shower. Being easy to please, I had no issue with this. What I had a huge problem with is the low, very low shower pressure. It was especially disappointing because the shower head looked huge which leads one to assume the pressure will be industrial grade (good enough to wash an elephant let's say) but alas, it was only a few shades better than trickles.
