This was my boyfriend and I's first visit to NYC together, and without a doubt, the OUT hotel was an outstanding place to stay! At first we didn't know what to expect as the advertising for this hotel seems as if it is targeted towards a strictly gay demographic. However, we were quick to notice that there were many different couples, friends and families who were staying here.
We were pleased to see that the staff was quite welcoming and accommodated our every need. The look of the hotel was very modern and extremely clean throughout. As you walk in to the hotel, you are greeted with the friendly staff and a hallway of art portraits along the walls. Attached is a bar restaurant and a club next door. I was worried that the noise from the music from the club would disturb our sleep, but being on the South side of the hotel, we weren't bothered at all... Plus, the hotel offers earplugs for those who can't sleep through it.
The room was great, perfect size for me and my boyfriend. It had a full minibar, desk, big screen TV, speedy WiFi, telephone with an iPod attachment that was able to charge our phones and play our music, and a three piece bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable- I wasn't able to get out of it each morning! The hotel itself had two iMac computers for guests to use, a big study room, two jacuzzis, a place inside the hotel with an open roof and a great gym.
The shower did not have a door to it, so occasionally, our floors outside of the shower were a bit wet. Also, although we had our bed sheets changed everyday during our stay, we kept noticing several marks on the sheets- juice spills, and a couple drops of old blood. Some would probably have complained, but we ended up just turning over the pillows or using the others. No big deal. I'm sure that if we had called to the front desk, they would have had it changed for us immediately. My boyfriend and I planned to drink alcohol during our stay, so every night we bought some beers and wine from the nearby 7/11 or CVC/Pharmacy. However, in order to get ice for our drinks, we'd have to call down to the front desk and ask someone to bring us up a tub. We felt bad that we had to keep calling down, I'm sure everyone would have benefitted if there was an Ice Maker available to all guests.
The location of the hotel was awesome. Just about a 10 minute walk from Times Square! Also, there is a CVS/Pharmacy right on the corner of the street the hotel is located on. There's also a nearby 7/11 and places to eat that were open late.
I will definitely come back to stay the next time I'm in NYC!
