Hotel is easy to find, took the subway from JFK to bus terminal 42nd street and then walked, it's like 5 minutes walking distance. We arrived in the hotel around 6pm first we were met by the concierge staff in the lobby, the helped us check in and saw to it that we got into our room. Now the room is the remark.
Once we got to the room we noticed the odd smell that was in the room, it turned out that someone has been smoking marihuana in the room! Was we found odd is that the cleaning staff didn't noticed it while cleaning. Our concierge arranged a new room for us and to compensate we got a top floor room with a superb view!
The room itself was great, I liked to see what they had done with such a relatively small square footage. I even found more outlets than I have in my own home. The coffee/thea making facilities that are on every floor are very nice. They could use a cleaning more often tough, the drink dispenser stayed broken our entire stay which were 7 nights!.
Free muffins every morning are a nice tough to get your day started, we haven't had any dinner/lunch in the hotel so no comments on the food. One night there was a party and the entire floor was shut off, not very easy for guests as they need that floor to transfer for the elevator to their room.
Staff were all very friendly and the service was impeccable, I had some deliveries to the hotel even before our arrival and the were there just as promised waiting to be picked up at the security office.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New York. Although keep in mind the space in the room is limited, but the location of the hotel is amazing!
