Don't ever book this hotel if you prefer a modern, fashion style. However, this hotel with more than 100 year pride will take you back to the good old days. Location is good, no problem to visit the Midtown New York all the way to central park by foot if you enjoy walking.
Many restaurants, one supermarket and Korean Town are nearby.
Our room had comfortable size with a double bed. Furniture was bit aged but bathroom was clean.
The housekeepers were friendly and did good job.
Front desk staff maintained proper courtesy but not very warm or smily to make you feel like welcoming. But they were still helpful and willing to assist your needs.
From 6 to 10.30 am, they will offer complimentary coffee/ tea and delicious muffin.
During my stay, I enjoyed very much to grab a book, found a seat , admired the ceiling and had a cup of tea in the lobby.
The issue we had was the wifi service was bit pricy. But it's New York, so you can easily find free wifi in the Apple stores, fast food restaurants, even well known cosmetic store offered free wifi, so a husband could be delighted waiting for his wife on beauty shopping!!
The only problem about this hotel is the street noise. Bear in mind this is an old building, so the windows were old, not double glasses, so if you are very sensitive with sounds, don't expect a good view. Ask a room facing the back of the hotel, that will reduce much noise but not at all, because of the location is near a fire station. In one way, you are very safe. But the sound from the street was possible.
Nevertheless, We had good night sleep during our stay. Don't have big problem with the minor sound as our room was facing the back.
