This is a nice looking hotel in a good neighborhood. Safeway is right across the street. Very clean, a wee bit dated, but still very far ahead of others in this area and price range. I loved the huge suite...though was not real crazy about the huge price tag that came with it. But I knew that going in. On the plus side, the location cannot be beat. And the room is very well sized and had two t.v.s and two separate living spaces. I also thought the shower pressure was great and always had hot water. HOWEVER...I know this might sound nit-picky, but I never asked for anything during the entire stay except two wake up calls. I even skipped maid service, as I really didn't see the point. However, I had a very important meeting to get to while there, so called the front desk to schedule a wake-up call for 7:30 a.m. They repeated the time back to me, so not sure how they still ended up blowing it. Next morning...I got the wake up call at 8:30 a.m....an hour later than the time scheduled. Needless to say, I was late for my meeting and kind of felt 'panicked' for the rest of the day. It really ruined my last day in NYC and I honestly think that is an unforgivable mistake for a hotel asking for so much $$. Good grief...how could they screw up something so simple? And even then...not so much as an apology from staff or management. I would never stay here again, as a result.
