We stayed at this hotel for six nights in April over Easter 2012. We booked the hotel online and were glad they had an open cancellation as well as breakfast included in the price. 275$ a night was pricey but as we have no other hotel in NY to compare it with we booked it. We had been in Philadelphia the same time period a year before and had a room that was 3 times as large as well as a view for 100 dollars less and it was downtown. Needless to say we were nervous when arriving as we didnt know what to expect. Our room was small! We had trouble finding room for our 3 large suitcases in the room. The closet was even smaller so we couldnt put that many clothes in the closet which is frustrating when staying six nights. Our room was a constant mess as we had no where to put things. Our beds were very comfortable and we were thanful for a window with fresh air. It is NY so of course it was noisy at night, we solved this by getting some ear plugs from the drug store around the corner. The room was dark in that it was painted an orange color so it needed more light I would say. We had a desk, bedside tables, and a tv on the wall. There was only enough space to walk to the other side of the bed between the bed and the wall so it was a small room. We loved our neighborhood. The park, restaurants, closeness of subway, drugstore, shopping and the quietness compared to other areas. The breakfast of bagels and toast and croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese and cold cereal was perfect for us. The staff were amazing. Our room was cleaned and made up each day despite the mess they would have to deal with in our room. We received restaurant recommendations and a warm greeting and farewell everytime we came to the lobby. We were provided a late check out on our last day as well and we were able to reorganize our luggage and what not in a spare room after a long day of more shopping before flying home. I would say though for the size of the room, the room rate is too high, but the staff do there best to make up for this in service. I would recommend this hotel.
