We visited this hotel during hurricane Sandy in Oct 2012 and both of us completely agree that the service we received during this event was excellent!
This was my first experience of New York and I will without a doubt be booking this hotel again if I ever they the opportunity to visit again!
Based very closely to Times Sq , we couldn't fault the location of this Hotel and this enabled us to travel by foot on the days were were not confined to our room!
Whilst the room we had was on the small side, this did not detract from the fact that this hotel was perfectly suited to anyone looking to stay in a trendy modern hotel!
The beds retract from more space during the day, but to be honest in a city such as new York, very little of your time is spent in the room.
The toilet/shower walk in is linked to the bedroom and separated by a curtain- so this may not be ideal unless you know the person you are staying with very well! I'm not sure how this works for a twin room. The privacy issue wasn't a massive problem for us...but I guess for some people it MIT be.
The room was spotless and decorated to a high standard with some quirky extras. Purple night lighting, Bose speakers/iPhone speaker, flat screen tv and satellite, etc...
We were originally only booked for 4 nights but due to our flights being cancelled the hotel extended our stay for a further 4 nights with very little hassle. We kept our room and complimentary lunch and films were put on in the hotel for those who were stuck in the storm.
Everything ran as normal which was very reassuring considering the circumstances.
Without a doubt I would 100% recommend to anyone staying in New York! Loved it and cannot wait to return!!!
The staff deserve all credit for the hard work they put in during the storm!!
