I think the people who have stayed here have no idea what to expect in a hotel stay - let alone in NYC.
We stayed for 3 nights in a "Cozy" room. The room is small - 150 to 200 sq feet at most. It is New York overall so not a big deal. The bed was a queen and there was just enough room to walk on either side of the bed. The bathroom door was right next to the bed and it was made of frosted IKEA glass. So, when your turned on the light in the bathroom, it would illuminate the bedroom. Normally not a big deal but in the middle of the night, the light from the bathroom can be annoying. The toilet was high industrial. Not a home toilet. So when you flushed, it was loud. We did have a inner room so it was quiet at night but no view. The view was a big industrial / machine looking thing.
The mini bar was automated. I took out 6 cans of pop so that I could but a box of left over food in there. When it was time to check out, we were asked if we used anything from the mini bar. I said no and the check out clerk said he would reverse the charge. But then noted that there was 6 charges. And then it dawned on me, it was the pop I took out to make room for my left over food. The front desk clerk understood and reversed the charges no problem.
I also signed up to be a Starwood Preferred Guest so that we could get free wi-fi in the room. Otherwise you have to pay for the wi-fi.
The location can not be beat! It is a few blocks from a subway station, Central Park, Rockerfeller Centre, Grand Central Terminal, and the Chrysler Building.
Overall a good soliday stay. No complaints and no issues.
