Booked through nyc.com and got a 3rd night free rate which sealed the deal. The room photos online on their website are the Superior and Deluxe rooms. I had a Standard room, which was barely 400 square feet, mainly because of the huge bathroom (photos attached). Really, very very basic rooms on the 9th floor - not much different than a Hyatt or Marriott. 9t floor not very quiet, the ususal street noise, even for a new, insulated hotel. They were unable to upgrade me any more, as you go up floors the rooms are larger/nicer, but more expensive. I was told an extra $1600/night to move to a higher floor.
No breakfast snacks, but coffee/espresso maker in the room and complimentary sodas and water in the fridge, a nice touch. The area is not great at all, you have to walk quite a bit to get anywhere, but outside there is a Starbucks and others nearby. Easy walk to Penn Station and Macys. The staff was very friendly, still working out the kinks in the new hotel. The huge Spa/gym was amazing -- couldn't spend any time there though. Now, what I have to brag about: The Bar on Fifth was the BEST part of my stay, the barstaff was excellent and helpful, especially Robby who made everyone feel welcome and conversational as a group. Loved the live jazz combo every night, a great overall vibe. Locals stop by to enjoy the new watering hole. I would recommend it if the price was right, and you didn't mind hoofing/subway to get to other popular areas. I like to look for hotels that include breakfast or concierge level, don't you? Every extra little bit of convenience helps!
