    The lobby was stunning and the room was well worth the price.

    The hot water took a bit to come through because it's an older hotel, but not a problem really.

    Good

    Clean and comfortable. Good location.

    I always knew this was going to be an expensive hotel, but some things went way too far, E.G. $13 for a whiskey in the bar. Worse, I made a 6 minute phone call to a friend 3 miles away, and was charged $17. Outrageous. I asked to speak to the manager and was told that he was in a meeting and would call me back - he never did. I emailed him and never got a response. Poor customer service.

    Only location is good.. Except nothing good in it.

    Hotel staff is worst.....No staff was available for us during check in as well as check out time. Not only this we our self carried our bags, while carrying with our baby also in one hand. Bathroom was so small and gate not having proper lock.

    The staff was friendly and helpful. They were always looking for ways to make a little difference with a friendly greeting, maps of the city, directions, extra kureg coffee refills, and calling the elevator when they see you walking towards it. It may not seem like much but it set a friendly, helpful environment. The location of the hotel is also a plus. It’s an easy walk to Time Square, Lincoln Center, Central Park and shopping.

    We stayed 3 times in the 3 weeks we were in the States. The first time was great was put in a queen size bed the second time a suite and then third time a kingsize bed so this time it was a bit of a disappointment. Everything was very good otherwise.

    The location was good - first time I stayed there and thought it was a luxury hotel

    Warm/not hot water and no explanation or apology. One week past Hurricane Sandy but Co workers staying at the DoubleTree - two blocks down for $120 less a night had hot water. For the price - the room was very worn and tired, small and with no hot water I feel ripped off.

    The excellent service started from the moment we walked in the door and never ended. Everyone from Jose who checked us in to the concierge were so helpful. The location is very central to everything and the beds were like sleeping on a cloud. The lobby is stunning and we enjoyed people watching

    Absolutley nothing this is a great older hotel

    Staff were very friendly, very good buffet breakfast, location excellent only a 10min walk to Times Square. Rooms are a good size with very large comfortable beds.

    Carpet in our bedroom was old and tired with some obvious staining.
