Beautyfull hotel in the middle of Manhattan! Everything is in walking distance!
Very clean, modern rooms and for Manhattan size LARGE.
We had the double twin room so 2 large beds and a nice and.neat bathroom with enough beauty products.
The breakfast is crowded but wel managed. Quality of the food is good.
We just stayed 4 nights at this hotel. . Room is small but spotlessly clean and functional. Toiletries are provided. Nice big shower. No bath. Complimentary water in fridge. Breakfast is manic! Generally You have to queue but the staff move the line really quickly and we never waited more than 3-4 minutes. Great selection of food which is constantly replenished. Loads of fruit, cold meats, cereals, bread, cooked eggs, bacon, sausages etc etc, cakes fruit juices coffees teas - you name it, it’s there.
Hotel is very close to Times Square. We found it a great base to do all the sights we wanted to see. Also we found the room very quiet in terms of noise from other guests. You can hear the traffic but this is true of any NY hotel in my opinion.
Would def recommend.
