If you are under 30, well-off and trendy this may be the hotel for you. If you are not any of these forget it.
The room was well situated being on a corner so four portholes to look out of and be spotted from the buildings opposite. The design is, I assume, supposed to be eclectic and hip but I found it merely uncomfortable. Great views of the Empire State Building etc but I found the bathroom view rather disconcerting as a half frosted window maintained a degree of decorum when seated but definitely rather over exposed when standing.
Square stainless steel bathtubs are undoubtedly at the cutting edge of style but uncomfortable in every other respect. The steel mesh shower curtain seems rather silly but who am I to tell.
Comfortable bed but the television set in the room was on a wall next to the bed and presents a traffic hazard for a person sleeping on the right hand side of the bed.
The lighting system requires very good eyesight to operate so if you are old bring a flashlight and your reading glasses.
In terms of cost and hence value for money, eye-watering but I suppose the norm for NY these days.
On a positive note, the staff could not have been nicer and helpful and coped well with the crowds of people milling about the lobby at 10.00pm
