Overall, very pricy for the quality it offers. Hotel reception is on the second floor, so the lobby is not really what you would define as 'grand'. Not that this matters much if the rooms are fine. I got a room facing the main street, which I can safely say is very NOISY. Of course this is New York, so you know that you can expect street noise, but a better acoustic isolation would already make a world of difference.
When I wanted to go to sleep and turned open the bed, I noticed that the sheets of the bed had clearly been slept upon already. At my request, clean sheets were given but i had to insist to change also the pillow sheets (had also been slept upon because there were hairs on it which clearly weren't mine).
As compensation, I was given free use of luggage storage. However, I sleep in hotels two months per year and I have NEVER before needed to pay to store my lugage for half a day after checking out. So this was clearly a way to send me to take a walk.
The mere fact that the hotel makes you pay heavily to store your suitcases for a few hours is actually outrageous.
Breakfast is included in the -hefty- price, but rather poor in choice and quality. Also everything is served in plastic (hello Kyoto...)
On the positive side: the hotel is conveniently located if you want to go to Little Italy or Chinatown.
