Spent 7 nights in this hotel,firstly ensure you under stand they charge $25 per night utility charge,it is in the print,it covers the use of the roof top pool,gym,sauna,wi fo and 10% discount for Spa related treatment. We did not eat or drink in the hotel,30 dollar for breakfast and 15 dollar for a beer was I thought some what high. You can enter hotel on West 56,through a revolving door,reception to your left,the receptionist,Ashley was polite and efficient,she informed and smiled,our room was 2923,there are 3 lifts opposite reception and another across the lobby,next to the Barber,$45 for a haircut,the lifts were readily available and rise and fall quickly. The corridors are of course lacking in day light,but sufficient electric light allows you to see you to your room,they key is a plastic card,stripe down to the right,enter and bathroom immediately to the right,opposite a curtained wardrobe area with safe,Iron,board and umbrella,with additional blanket and pillow,moving forward there is a ottoman style piece of furniture to the left with the bed opposite,which was comfy and could sleep 3,if you like that sort of life. To the right of the bed is the window,with a desk area,table lamp,phone ,office style chair and a revolving open arm fashioned chair. The room size was a third larger than a U.K. Premier Inn Room The decoration is possibly dated. The Bathroom has a shower over the bath,the shower head is fixed to the wall and worked,although I doubt if the Hotel Manager would be happy using it,not enough head movement and the cover plate had come adrift from the wall,the WC worked very well,Hand and face wash is helped along with an under counter basin,hand soap and a body lotion called Moonshine,my Wife said it was very good. No extractor fan and I must go back a few lines,the air con works. No Coffee/Tea making,but we knew this and brought our own kettle,a lot of people brought food in,we did,no issues with this,there was an ice machine situated in the corridor,very handy. The room to us was very acceptable,checked daily,for those who need it a very big TV on the wall. The swimming pool is on the top floor,49,the pool is small and each time we visited has children having fun in the pool,but never swimming,the views of course are very good. There are wooden loungers to one side of the pool,male and female changing rooms ,towels are supplied. You can sunbathe outside also. We were happy with the pool area,but don’t expect to swim,the employees do not take charge. The hotel is a couple of blocks away from the south side of Central Park and a few blocks down is Times Square,and plenty of places to eat. Now I doubt if the following will happen to you,we were present when the electric power failed at 7pm,a major outage,we reached the hotel just after 8pm,the back up generator was working but failed,to allow elderly to walk about with candles and allow customers to walk up the stairwell is questionable ,I had my doubts if the generator had been regularly checked or evacuating drill undertaken, customers remained calm,a wedding party kept singing and the hotel provided cold food and water,although I never heard an announcement,the electric powered up just after 11pm and the management ensured sanity in controlling the lifts. Checking out is 12pm, the Hotel at no extra charge securely hold your luggage until you need to leave to the Airport I have no qualms in recommending this hotel,albeit the utility charge Read less

The staff were lovely and we were made to feel very welcome. However, our room was very basic even though we had paid for an upgrade as it was our wedding anniversary.

The staff were lovely and we were made to feel very welcome. However, our room was very basic even though we had paid for an upgrade as it was our wedding anniversary. No fridge, no water, no safe, no tea & coffee, no water glasses. It is expensive. At the bar we were charged $32 dollars for two beers. There is a small pool on the roof of the hotel but the 'sun deck' just means sitting with the air con units. Be aware that you will be charged $25 per night for the pool facility even if you don't use it. There is also no information in the rooms about what the hotel offers or local attractions. I wouldn't stay here again. Read less

We traveled with our six month old baby and the people were extremely nice. They gave us the baby crib and complementary early check in and check out! Rooms are big, silent and clean. The hotel is very nice!

Run down and overpriced Location was ok. Staff were ungrateful and only reactive to tips (guys... nobody caries around cash these days) Lots of families and children in a business style hotel Would not recommend

A bit of a nondescript lobby, with some mirrors and a randomly placed curtain. Service at front desk was brutally slow. Rooms were clean and bed was comfy, for that I would normally give good ratings. However, this is midtown, too many places with a ton of character to make those things enough! Boring decor (if you could even call it that). If… Read more
A bit of a nondescript lobby, with some mirrors and a randomly placed curtain. Service at front desk was brutally slow. Rooms were clean and bed was comfy, for that I would normally give good ratings. However, this is midtown, too many places with a ton of character to make those things enough! Boring decor (if you could even call it that). If simplicity is your goal, it has been achieved. It was devoid a coffee maker (and that seems more rare these days), oddly placed drawers, and just blah. Not crazy about getting overcharged for so many little nickel-and-dime things which ended up making it a “memorable” experience. We did manage to avoid the epic power outage to midtown, which would probably have been another charge to our account. Read less
