The staff were so polite and really provided an excellent level of customer service. The room was very clean, and housekeeping did a great job refreshing the space each day. While I booked a queen bed on Expedia, I arrived to find that my room only had a single bed. I was disappointed, as I would have appreciated having the larger bed that I had booked and paid for. The single pillow was really flat, but the staff did send a second pillow when I requested one.

This was a great location, and our child enjoyed the lofted bunkbed space. However, it was extremely loud. We could hear everything, from the hallway to the street. The TV didn't fully work, and there was a moldy smell in the bathroom.

This is one of the trendy hotels in NYC. Unfortunately, trendy means small and expensive. We paid for a queen "upgraded" room, but two of us could not pass each other anywhere in the room without acrobatics. The pics make the room look twice as big as it is. My side of the bed had a support beam pushed against the frame and you were not getting by it. The only place we could open the suitcase was laying on top of the bed which is where we had to sit. The sink was the smallest I've ever seen. However, the elevators worked and the staff was terrific !

Very cool and historic building. If those walls could talk… It’s a much less touristy location than Midtown, yet still convenient to everything. We really love the neighborhood. The room was clean, comfy and unique. We had an upper floor facing west and the view was amazing. My only small negative comment is that the room was smaller than expected. To get on the right side of the bed, you had to either squeeze through literally ONE FOOT of space between the foot of the bed and the wall (contorting around the wall mounted TV) or crawl across the bed. All in all though, we enjoyed our stay.
