We stayed here 4 nights. There were definitely some positives, but also some negatives that a traveler with kids should consider.
- clean room, nice housekeeping staff
- great restaurant, fab breakfasts, hospitable waitstaff
- knowledgeable concierge
- rooftop pool
- close to subway
- no sundries shop for snacks, etc.
- Internet for a fee.
- rooftop pool closed 2 of 4 nights-hotel rents it out for private events. One of those 2 nights, we had NO WARNING. A sign was posted the SAME DAY it was scheduled to be closed. The hotels solution-- to send guests to another hotel a few blocks away to use their pool. A little bird informed of the reason for this last minute closure of the pool -- a photo shoot for the hotel. Really? Couldn't they have gone up to do their shoot at 6 am rather than close it at 4 pm for the whole night!!
-rooftop pool available to non-guests during the day for a $30 fee... Meaning that during the day the pool did get crowded. Since the hotel was at 100% occupancy, I don't feel letting non-guests use the pool.
