My husband and I stayed here for one night in August.
I booked on line as a result of reading reviews here so after our stay I felt that I needed to add my review too.
We are travelling in the US and Canada for 6 weeks and have stayed in many different types of accommodation. The 140 is clean but very dated and not good value for money. It was previously a YWCA Building and the building and rooms are all quite basic. Nothing wrong with that at all but at over $300 a night not good value for money.
There are no doormen to help with bags and there are several steps to get into the foyer as well as two sets of doors. The main lift in the foyer was broken and we were asked to use another lift around the corner. We were permitted to,use the hotel luggage trolley to take to our room - maneuvering this in and out of a lift was not fun.
