My daughters and I stayed at the Cornell for 4 nights in early August. I have stayed in our hotels in the Union Square area but chose this hotel on the recommendation of a friend and because the room rate for 3 people was good in comparison to other hotels. I found the hotel charming as others describe, although a little shabby, but it was a problem I believe specific to our room 601 that has resulted in my poor review. The shower is a mere trickle, making it difficult to even get the shampoo out of your hair. I'm not exaggerating! I twice complained to the management about the shower. Initially I was told it was a problem with the shower head and the handyman would come but the next day was told it was a larger problem and not a quick fix. No rooms were available to move us to and I didn't explore the inconvenient option of perhaps showering in another room. Unless I am mistaken I believe the hotel was aware of the problem before I was given this room which is really disappointing. Unfortunately this problem combined with street noise making wearing ear plugs to sleep each night would make me not return to this hotel
