Stayed here over Thanksgiving week for a few nights and going into it, I knew the rooms were going to be small but dang, I measured from the side of the bed and the AC unit and there was less then two feet of space to move through. Luckily there was a closet to put our bags in unlike some other hotels I've stayed at with small rooms like the paramount.
My first of two issues with this place is the main lobby is a cluster. I don't know if it was because it was Thanksgiving week or if it's usually like that but it appears there was no room for people checking their bags at the front desk as they were always piled in the main lobby and made it look run down and unorganized. Also, people are always gathering there so trying to get the front desk was a pain since the bags were taking up a lot of the room in the lobby.
My second issue and the bigger one was every morning when we woke up, we had pieces of paint from the ceiling falling on us. I didn't notice the ceiling until after the first night but after looking at it closely, the paint on the whole ceiling was cracking and peeling off and every day we were finding pieces on the bed, floor and bathroom. Just from that happening and the front desk saying there were no rooms to move us to and didn't feel like it was an issue, I will no longer be staying here. I completely understand if the hotel was sold out, but most places I've stayed at that if something is wrong and they can't move me or fix the issue, they comp a free breakfast or discount the room some... Well that wasn't happening here since they knew I had no other place to really go since it was a pre-paid room.
I usually have better options when I travel to NYC 4-5 times a year for work but for personal travel, this is on my "do not book" list.
