Well...there IS one terrible thing. But more on that later. First the pluses: Location. Although a boring area of Chelsea, it's an easy stroll to more interesting bars, restaurants, etc. Room was clean, bed comfortable. I had the Penthouse with a terrace. Great view, 20 foot ceilings. Crap weather so the terrace wasn't used much, but on a summer evening - oh wow.
I did expect the "Penthouse" to be a bit more special. It's basically an enlarged standard room. Bland, no character, beige. Now for the terrible: The architect of this hotel must be the same one for all the midtown west hotels. He should be striped of his license. Two elevators serving 27 floors and all day the cleaning people are using them. Not their fault, but they slow it down tremendously. Add to that all the guests and basically you lose a lot of your life waiting. Painful.
