It's an old building, the rooms are small and the bathroom was tiny, but everything is updated and clean, so it was comfortable. However, there was no clock, coffee maker, or draperies. Sure, we have cell phones to tell time, but I need a clock I can read in the middle of the night. We met four different people in the elevator carrying coffee up to their rooms. And, even on the ninth floor, blinds do nothing to cut down the street noise.
I understand NYC pricing, but $79 for two breakfasts -- one of them only rolls -- is ridiculous, particularly since the hash browns were inedible and the eggs not very tasty. We ate breakfast at the diner down the street the second day for $30 with much, much better food and service.
Bottom line, we might stay there next year (a meeting 4 doors down the street) -- but won't eat there -- and we'll insist on a room on an upper floor.
