The four-star rating comes from a few specific things:
--Location, location, location; steps off Times Square and convenient to the subway
--Room size - not huge but big by NYC standards, and I had enough room for my workout videos
--Upscale lobby area
Other than that, the place is just OK.
Even the bathroom had a reasonable amount of counter space. Bathroom amenities include soap, shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, and lotion, plus packages of cotton balls and swabs.
Internet access will cost you if you’re not a Priority Club member. If you are, it’s complimentary, fast and reliable. This plus a dedicated line at the front desk were the only amenities I received as a Gold member.
On the downside, the room was a bit shabby. The carpet was threadbare in places. One of my cotton ball packages had been opened.
