Image of the Tripadvisor rating The worst I ever stay

The whole experience in the hotel was terrible. At first it was bearable with the smell in the room and the slowest elevator ever until the hotel bring back our car with two dents on it. We did the valet parking. I wouldn’t write this review if it’s just the Elevator ( BTW we waited for more than 20 minutes just to get to the ground floor and… Read more
The whole experience in the hotel was terrible. At first it was bearable with the smell in the room and the slowest elevator ever until the hotel bring back our car with two dents on it. We did the valet parking. I wouldn’t write this review if it’s just the Elevator ( BTW we waited for more than 20 minutes just to get to the ground floor and there were so many other customers complaining about it too) but I couldn’t do it anymore when the hotel told me that they partnered with the garage, it’s not their problem if we got our dented car? I feel so sorry for my friends and I that I booked this hotel for this trip to New York. It was so disappointing and awful. The garage I believe it was call “city parking” that they try to use the excuse of saying we got our car for too long and the paint came off by it self? HAHAHA funniest joke I ever heard in my life? Hope you guys don’t have to this awful experience when you come to New York since it’s a beautiful city. This city doesn’t deserve anything like this. Read less

This is a 30 story tower with three small elevators. Waits are unacceptably long. Only two were operative through my stay. Otherwise, room was nice, clean, and relatively spacious for midtown Manhattan.

I arrived a bit early and was checked-in and received a room (well before check-in time). The room was spacious and I think it was an upgrade. THANK YOU. It was hot, humid and the streets were afire, so I really appreciated the fridge and daily portion of bottle waters. THANK YOU. There was a bit of construction noise during my stay, but it… Read more
I arrived a bit early and was checked-in and received a room (well before check-in time). The room was spacious and I think it was an upgrade. THANK YOU. It was hot, humid and the streets were afire, so I really appreciated the fridge and daily portion of bottle waters. THANK YOU. There was a bit of construction noise during my stay, but it stopped after 5pm. THANK YOU. Room was comfy, I slept well, and the view towards 7th st. was very nice (room 1231). THANK YOU. I accidentally left behind a small bag of personal items. It took about 20 minutes but they had retrieved it and everything was in tact. THANK YOU. If for nothing else, I would return to be welcomed by the doorman (who checked for key cards after hours, otherwise you couldn't enter the hotel). Whenever I returned to the hotel, he gestured me into the lobby like I was the Queen of Zamunda and rose petals were laid before me. For me, it's the little things. I can't say it enough... THANK YOU :) Read less

Image of the Tripadvisor rating Huge noise coming from elevator #3 and no resolution from the hotel

Jul 28, 2022 Sergio F Sao Paulo, SP

Called the front desk several times, always promising they would shut down elevator #3, never happened. Solution proposed was to wait until less people used the elevator at night and try to get to sleep. They also promised to give me a new room, and it never happened. Avoid it if you like quiet rooms.
