Nice place, but problems with room

Location is great and room lovely. Our room remained 81F even after I set temp to 67F. I didn’t realize I could shut off the system completely until the morning we left and the temp dropped to 74F. We also had a fan that was very loud and go off near the bathroom every few hours. When I told front desk I received a verbal apology, but no compensation for our discomfort such as points or discount in future stay.

Will stay again

The room was very nice and clean. Lots of pillows, which I love. The bathroom was beautiful. Only negative is there was no full length mirror. How a girl to know...booties or pumps?? Great staff, low key bar

Friendliest hotel in NYC

I work in Manhattan so I have stayed at plenty of hotels in the city from the very high end (The Pierre) to the budget friendly (SpringHill Suites) and this is by far the friendly place I have ever stayed. Right from the start we were enthusiastically greeted by Daniel at the front desk. He gave us all sorts of tips about the hotel and a nice upgrade because my husband is a Spire member. From there we heading down to the 5:00pm wine reception where we received another warm welcome by one of the managers. After a glass of wine we decided a cocktail was in order so up to the bar we went where the bartender very warmly greeted us (notice a trend?) and poured us two amazing cocktails. He was a real professional. Can't totally remember his name but it begins with an A. After a nice time at the hotel we headed for dinner and returned around 10:30pm for another fabulous cocktail before we called it a night. We received more friendly service. Some have said it can be noisy but our room was in the back and we heard no street noise at all. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We were up and out by 7:00 am but our short stay was amazing. It is definitely our future choice for Saturday nights in the city. Well done! PS. Two Pelotons in the gym!!!

Customer care

The car valet company was very slow but the staff and management were very helpful and took care of everything. Daniel the concierge was also helpful and had good restaurant recommendations. The rooms are nice with big bathroom.

Stay Here 2-3 Times a Year, Love It

The staff at this hotel are very special people. From the moment you walk in the door until the moment you walk out, people treat you as if you're special (even though we really aren't). They seem to have the attitude that they want you to enjoy yourself. I've stayed here many times, but even after the once or twice, several staff members remembered me and said they did. That's amazing for a NYC hotel! The location is half block from Times Square. The lobby is inviting. The people who make up your room are friendly and accommodating. The new exercise room is large, has two Peloton bikes, and is perfect. Who could ask for more? I love this hotel and highly recommend it.
