Good, but not great.

The hotel looks great from the outside to the inside. The outside has old world charm, while the inside is totally renovated and very modern. The key card system for the elevator is annoying, since anyone can still get in via the stairs. The room size is very small, but the location is great. The price isn't all that bad for the value though. The continental breakfast was nice, but we only do organic, so we didn't take advantage of it. The room safe is attache via a bolt to a shelf which could be easily removed, so not the most secure method of attachment. The staff was great. Checkin was super easy as was checkout. One time I had the elevator keyed in for me as I had my hands full. Kudos! There's a small restaurant at the top of the hotel under a canopy. Its a nice place. The food was good too. Ah, I almost forgot... The A/C system is not great. The placement of the ducting makes it so that you get hit in the face as you sleep. So... We basically got woken up in the middle of the night every half hour or so. Also, the hotel is next to the church whose bell sounds every now and then. Thankfully it did so at appropriate times of the day. Overall, I was happy with certain things, and not so happy with others. If you need to be super-close to Times Square and Rockefeller Plaza, then this is your hotel. If you want a good night's rest and a comfy room with enough space to eat in, then this is not your hotel.

Perfect hotel

I have stayed several times in New York over the last few years , but this hotel and the staff they employee are by far the best I have yet come across . We were in room 616 which was right by the lifts but the noise was next to nothing , the rooftop bar can get very lively , however all rooms have excellent air conditioning so that you can shut the windows and there is no noise at all . Nothing was too much trouble , the staff were ultra friendly without being over bearing , the roof top bar was a little sanctuary , all in all it was perfect and I will go back .

Ace location, expensive, some disappointments

Was basically OK, and the location is half a block from Times Square and Broadway, and pretty close to Rockefeller Center and 5th Avenue shopping. Subway stations close nearby for several lines. Price matches location. Breakfast is included and its OK but not brilliant. In-room WiFi was poor to nonexistent and couldn't be fixed despite requests. Aircon was too noisy to sleep with. We could even hear the aircon fans of the adjacent rooms. In-hotel restaurant and bar (on roof) has good choice and astronomical prices. Noisy = great atmosphere (take your pick). Decent eating and drinking at reasonable prices within a couple of blocks if you look around. Rooms clean. Beds comfortable. Plumbing and TV all work well. Light switches baffling but we worked them out eventually. Attentive staff. You might get better hotel value for a holiday visit to NYC a short, cheap and safe subway ride away. We visited Frick Collection, MOMA, Rockefeller Center incl Top of the Rock, 9/11 memorial site, Museum of Natural History. Free stuff we did was Staten Island Ferry, Brooklyn Bridge walk, High LIne walk, Central Park (great), Greenwich Village walk-around, Times Square hang-around and gawp. Went to the show "STOMP" in Orpheum Theatre, East Village. Amazing. MUST book well ahead.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the Air Train and subway from/to JFK. Cheap, fast, safe, easy. All run by NY Metro. Then get a week unlimited subway ticket each. Great value for a tourist, to get around. NYC Yellow cabs are iconic but subway cheaper and faster. Just not so swanky. Pair with the buses (same unlimited pass) and you can go pretty much anywhere. Use the Hop-on-hop-off tour buses. 2-day seemed best value. Just ride all the routes including the boat (pick the line that includes the boat). Takes 2 days to do the lot. Great orientation.

Just excellent

First time we went to New York and we could not have stayed in a better place . The best service ever. Brandt and Jacob were the concierges and they gave us the best advices to enjoy New york. In each different day they manage, with short notice, to find us access to most exclusives venues in Town . Thank you guys for making our stay so enjoyable. Daniel and Deydi

Ask Jacob to get you in the guest list of Sugar Lounge or the Avenue night club. He will do it and also to find you a limo he ll get a very good price with Tim.

Good Hotel, Better Location

This hotel is right next to Times Square, but you don't near any of the noise. Positives: -Great Location in the heart of Manhattan, nearly multiple subway lines. -Clean room, very pretty -Staff were helpful and knowledgeable -Free Internet (wireless, no ethernet cable) -Breakfast provided (very simple breakfasts though) -Beds are comfortable and large Negatives: - The rooms are a bit small, so there's not much room if you're carrying a fair amount of luggage. However, the bathrooms are very large.

Times Square has all sorts of things happening, with tickets available behind the seating stands. Food is cheap and generally good quality, but service was generally poor.
