2/10 Poor

Bumped for migrants.
We booked our hotel months in advance. However, when we arrived, the hotel had been taken over by the state to house migrants that were shipped there from elsewhere in the country. We were never informed. We were told that we were contacted, but that was not the case. Our stay was meant to be within a few blocks of our destinations. However, we were re-booked at a hotel 16 blocks away. We would have spent the entire trip in a cab or walking for hours. When I asked for a refund, I was told that I couldn't receive one because it was within 24 hours of our scheduled arrival. Again, nothing was ever sent to us detailing what was happening. I am very disappointed and will never attempt staying at the hotel again.

Be aware of this hotel, they decided 3 days before my trip they would not honor our reservation. So we had to find another option last minute. Very unprofessional and inconvenient so last minute
Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

The location and price of the property compared to others in the same area shows high value. The rooms are clean. Rooms are small, but everything one needs is present. Staff forget to give towels, floor mats and blankets. Had to request twice, but very responsive to requests. Check in and check-out were easy. Staff was always friendly. I would recommend booking an executive room to have more space, and request a room with a view.

Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

A good place to stay if you just need a to crash at the end of a day of site seeing. Conveniently located but showing some wear and with few amenities. The windows to our room wouldn't close fully which allowed a lot of noise in from the street and one of the three elevators was out of service for the duration of our stay. Overall though the location is great, right next to Times Square, walking distance from a lot of popular attractions and there's a decent amount of restaurant options nearby.

6/10 Good

This property was at a really nice location. The staff was friendly and let us check in early. Our room had a lot of hair in the bathroom upon check in and we saw quite a few cockroaches. After our first night out we came back in and flipped on the light and saw one scramble across the table. After that we saw 5 more between the bathroom and bedroom areas. The room was kinda cramped but we kind of expected that with a New York hotel. The elevators are very small and one was broke down the whole time we were there. There aren’t any amenities and no fridge in the room. There is a restaurant on one side and lounge on the other.
