This hotel was decent enough, but hotwire listed it as a 4.5 star hotel. No way. The room was nice, and standard sized by NY standards, but almost everything cost extra $$. Parking was $50 each time you took the car out. A messenger arrived, and instead of calling me, they brought it to my room and charged me for it. Wifi access is on a per-unit basis. So, when I logged on with my phone AND my computer, it was a double charge. Raise the bill, and add it in. However, the bill was already not cheap by NY standards (though it would have been a bargain if it really were a 4.5 star hotel).
Beds were comfortable. Housekeeping was very thorough, but service in general (other than the doormen) was just ok. Some of the lobby art/decor made me wonder if they'd hired a professional.
