The hotel has some history and the decoration in the foyer displays this. The lifts are slow and small making it difficult with school groups. We were allocated rooms all over the hotel so management of the school group was hard work. Some of the staff at reception seemed distant and offered very little in the way of smiles. Problems were dealt with quickly, although nothing could remedy the erratic shower behaviour. Despite several days of trying to work out how to adjust water temperature it always offered a shower that could alter from hot to cold in seconds. We did not know until we arrived that some floors (12 and 7) were dedicated smoking floors. On the plus side the location was central to seeing New York and the subway was only couple of blocks ( 5 mins) away. This hotel is very close to the Empire State building and Macey's. There are lots of little shops close by and we found a little cafe for our group for breakfast (AU Bon Gout). Storage was available in a secure room for our luggage on the day we were leaving. The hotel has a small shop which is open until the evening - good for students to get bottled drinks etc as there were no drink facilities in the rooms. The rooms were cleaned well every day. Safes available in rooms.
