As a regular Hotel user, I can only find praise for this Hotel. Great location by Central park, Times Square etc. Exceptionally friendly staff on the front desk. Clean Hotel with comfy beds. Cool... Read more bars with a funky feel. The minor points are noisy AC system and no Breakfast options. I booked a deluxe double double and room was spacious as was the bathroom. As with most things in life you get what you pay for. I highly recommend, however if you like a traditional Hotel, then this one is not for you. Read less
Recently stayed at the Hudson Hotel to celebrate my 40th Birthday. When we arrived the entrance and the hotel reception is stunning, but once you get in the lift to go up to the rooms it goes... Read more rapidly downhill from there. Prior to arrival my partner had explained that we were staying for a special occasion and she was assured that we would be allocated a good room. If the room we got was a good room I would not like to see the normal rooms. The rooms are very small, with very little storage space. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the room. When you were in the room there was a clear glass panel between the room and the toilet, therefore offering no privacy. We stayed for five nights, on night 2 of our stay the heating unit kicked in to life at 4am and started to blast hot air in to the room. the heating system was very noisy and located just behind the headboard of the bed. The control for the system was set at OFF so there was apparently a fault, therefore maintenance was called, who attended very quickly and isolated the power to the unit. On return to the room the following day I expected the problem to be solved but when we returned the room was freezing and no heating was working, once again maintenance attended, assured us the problem was fixed and left. Same scenario later that night, maintenance back in the room at 4am to isolate the heating, so for the remaining two nights we had no heating/aircon available in the room. When we checked out I informed the check out staff that it was a disappointing stay, and there appeared to be no concern as to why or what could have been done to rectify the matter. Read less
Don't be deceived by the flashy lobby and bar, this is not a place you should consider staying in New York! We stayed in the double double room which was obviously bigger than most, but was really... Read more just 2 double beds and a small bathroom. There is no kettle or tea/coffee facilities (which I think is a pretty basic and standard inclusion these days) and the toiletries were sub-standard ie no shower cap/cotton buds. The bathroom is so small there isn't even anywhere to place your toiletries bag, I resorted to putting mine on the floor. The air conditioning as many have mentioned is extremely loud and situated behind the headboard of one of the beds so whoever is in that bed won't get any sleep. Floorboards are pretty but create so much noise from above that you have to hope any pray you have considerate neighbors. The towels were so old, scrappy and unmatched they look they should be used as rags. The elevators are extremely slow and on our 3rd day they completely stopped working so that the entire hotel was serviced by 1 elevator, resulting in queues of at least 70 people in the lobby and 15 minute waits to get off your floor and leave the building. The reception needs 1 queue as the way they have it now people stand anywhere and unless you are really pushy you won't get served. There is apparently a concierge but during our 5 day stay we only saw the desk manned on one occasion and we asked reception instead where Bloomingdales was (they gave us the wrong address) and so we ended up figuring things out ourselves. We requested a late check out and were told they would give us a complimentary late check-out of 12pm (this is the standard check-out time)-illustrates how useless the staff are and they treat you like you are stupid. Late check out was eventually offered at $50 till 1pm or $180 until 3pm ie there is no such thing as complimentary late check-out. On a positive note the rooms felt clean and the cleaning staff were very friendly-unfortunately that is the only positive thing I have to say about this hotel. Read less
This was a girlie trip to the big apple and 4 of us shared a deluxe 2 double room. The vibe from the hotel is great and is a fantastic place to have a drink in the evening. The Lodge bar is so... Read more relaxing and comfortable and the main bar/restaurant is buzzing of an evening with a DJ playing most nights. Rooms are of a good standard and the location is fantastic...just by Central Park. Downsides are that the rooms are small and storage is minimal...no drawers!!! Had to live out of our suitcases of which there were four. Also no tea/coffee facilities in the rooms and when we called down to reception we had 2 cups of tea sent up which set us back $15!!! Would I stay here again...probably not as there are far better hotels at better prices. I would definitely go back for a drink though. Read less
