There was no mention of the 1-5 flight walk up when booking. The rooms were very small and mine was on the 5th floor with very steep stairs. We had no hot water one morning .

I'm really disappointed about the room I had, this doesn't seems like an actual hotel. the room was too tiny for the price I paid for 7 night 1700$?. No way, it should had cost 900$. Really uncomfortable in everyday. Disappointed sorry. First and last time.

Will stay here again
Second year staying here and second year we were very pleased. It’s close to everything we want to do and is surrounded by subway stops, which makes Tracey the city easier.

4/10 Fair

Never again
5th floor walk up. Don’t remember reading about this in description. No hot water!!!! Tiny room with cramped layout. Coffee maker with no convenient outlet. Guess the architect missed the first day lecture about form and function. But was clean.

Modern and contemporary fantastic stay!
Exceptional hotel in an amazing location. The rooms are modern and contemporary, as well as spacious for the value. The front desk manager Adam really goes above and beyond by making sure your stay is special. If you are in NYC and looking for the best value look no further!
