First of all, this place has an outstanding location -- steps from Meatpacking District, West Village and Chelsea. It's clean and relatively friendly. But definitely not the kind experience that warrants all these rave reviews. Service at the front desk was competent, but none of the employees I came in contact with made any effort to provide "above and beyond" the basics. Room was tiny, even by NYC standards. I had a first floor room that had cardboard filling in the space around the window air conditioner. (So much for security.) Bathroom was cramped. And overall, the decor was dated and felt like it had gone through a string of "home makeovers." Yes, rates were pretty cheap, but I honestly expected a bit more for the money. I've stayed in many NYC hotels, and this one (even with the low rates) isn't anywhere near the top of the heap. I honestly question all the "1 review" TripAdvisor entries ... something feels fishy. This definitely isn't one of the top 10 hotel experiences in the city of New York!
