The pros are that this hotel is very nicely furnished, has comfortable beds, modern walk-in showers with rain heads, very spacious rooms by NY standards, very quiet hallways and rooms, free wifi (for Plat Ambassador) and pretty good service from the bell hops to the check-in staff. We got an upgrade to the 28th floor, which had a great view uptown and over the Hudson.
The cons are that there seem to be issues with the room keys. We stayed 3 nights and I think we ended up with 4 sets of keys at least and had to call security up to the room twice to open the room for us. Not ideal IMO. The restaurant downstairs is also way overpriced for breakfast, so go to Trattoria Daniella across the way on 8th Ave for an outstanding and much better breakfast. Last but not least, the location will not be for everyone...because this is right by Times Square, getting to and fro this hotel via car can be a bear.
