This hotel is well located to downtown NYC, your walking distance from the meatpacking district (and its nightlife), chelsea market and the highline (park).
The hotel itself has two very exclusive bars, PHD lounge and Electric rooms. Hotel guests are not guaranteed entry into either of these after a certain time, but if you get in they are fun places.
As the hotel has both of these bars and the bar in the lobby area itself, don't be surprised to find loads of people hanging around having a fun time and drinking, if you want somewhere very quiet you may want to try somewhere else.
The rooms are fine, size is in line with other good hotels and the beds are comfortable. The bathroom is ok not the best, the sink is very poorly designed.
There is no proper ipod dock, you need to get an audio cable which you can then hook up most mp3 players to listen to music through the room sound systems (the cable is available on request).
The steak and Japanese restaurants are nice if you like those cuisines, I would reccomend trying them out although on busy nights you may need to reserve in advance.
Hotel staff are friendly and helpful, although they did make a mistake on my account. I was charged room parking which was resolved but took a few days for someone to look into.
