The entrance is very ornate and fancy. And that's where it stops.
The rooms are small, and not all of them have a bathroom en suite. I did, but it was so small that I had to squeeze my legs under the basin in order to sit on the toilet.
Small kitchenette is not bad.
The furnishings (bed, cupboards, desk, etc.) seem to be circa 1930, aside from the TV. Bed sagged horribly at the foot end, but the main part was tolerable.
The front desk people haven't totally absorbed the idea of excellence in customer service; they can sometimes be curt and gruff, but if you create a positive relationship with them they can be quite obliging.
All in all this is not even vaguely a luxury experience, but if you need to stay in Manhattan, and can't afford a top-class hotel, this is an option.
