Booked on hotel web site in August. Stayed at this hotel in October for a week. Midtown, 3 blocks from 28th & Park Avenue MTA #6 Green Line station. Fantastic location. Old refurbished 12 story brown stone.
Toilet backup twice. Called Front desk. Housekeeper came promptly with plunger. Done.
Small room, sigh – that’s Manhattan. Queen size bed, small, two adults - squeeze. Excellent Tempur-Pedic mattress, very impressive. Bed frame and box spring squeaks every time we moved, very annoying. Choose room facing 30th Street side instead of facing Lexington Avenue. Quieter with less traffic; no view, but who care. Mini bath tub, sigh again. The rooms facing inside courtyard are the most quiet; but those are larger rooms with two queen beds.
Free WiFi internet access, slow but adequate; speed test 293kbps at 8am in the morning. Free breakfast, good. Free telephone call anywhere within USA, incredible. Air Conditioner effective cool the room quick, but may be too noisy to sleep while the AC was on. Requested housekeeping for extra blanket and bed sheet; delivered promptly.
No refrigerator, No microwave, sign request no food in room. Numerous restaurants and grocery within a block or two. We tried several better restaurants along 3rd Avenue. 32” LCD TV, with HBO movie channels, but video is NTSC analog 320x240 lowest fussy resolutions, what a shame. Clock is LCD without backlight and cannot be seen in the dark. Bathroom glass is unusual; particularly the bathroom light brightness would probably awaken another person sleeping in the room.
One night, there was no water. Next morning (the most expensive day of over $250 compare the rest of the week), the faucet water came out dark brown with smell. The hotel management was not smart enough to immediately deliver bottle to every guest, or did not care. Of course, they do know how to charge us the room in full. They said the city was working on water up the street. However, we, as guest had to go up the street and buy bottle water ourselves.
At check out, we were bill Sales Tax $15.57+ City Tax 10.31 + Javits Fee $1.50 + Occupancy Tax $2.00 every day. That is over 15% of the room charge, not shown in ramada.com when we booked the room. So beware, you cannot compare ramada.com reservation room charge with all other online booking reservation sites which always show total cost, including tax.
