Stayed here for 5 nights in mid-March. Firstly, this hotel is fine... but just fine. It appears as a 4 star hotel on booking sites, but I have stayed in many hotels and this is arguably nearer a 3 star hotel. I don't dispute they probably have more lavish rooms than their POD or Queen rooms, but ultimately this just means you get a 3 star room in a 4 star hotel if you select these rooms. Hotel lobby is exceptionally dark and I can't really understand the ambience that they are going for. It was easy to feel thoroughly depressed at the lack of natural light in the hotel so you would think that they would paint the walls a more neutral colour rather than black lobbies and dark blue walls in the corridors. Also, the room doors in this hotel seem to slam incessantly. You would think that in a 4 star hotel they would dampen the doors, but it was common to hear doors opening and shutting at the other end of the corridor during the night
First night we were placed in room 99, a pod room. It was a well appointed room and on first inspection was decent for the price paid (£100 per night on priceline). Given the price the room was acceptable, but would no way pay the rack rate that they advertise on their own website. My first impressions were quashed when the 10ftx10ft massive unit (air conditioner?) on the adjacent building kicked in and sounded like a jet engine stirring up every 30 minutes. Not exactly 4 star! We requested a room change, but the hotel was full and this could not be honoured until the following day. We were moved as promised the very next day.
Nonetheless, hotel staff were polite and helpful. Location of this hotel is excellent and well situated for the subway and other midtown Manhattan hotspots. If you can get a good deal on this hotel it worth a look. But frankly, I could have had a deal for only £15 more a night at the Hyatt with a city view and I would probably go for that next time as a safe hotel bet.
Not a bad hotel all-in-all, but only if you can get at a low price. Otherwise, there are better to be had in NYC.
