    Upon arrival was told we need to go to another hotel - despite the state of emergency everyone at the new hotel was great - my only question is will Expedia refund me some money since the hotel I was sent off to was priced way less then what I booked and paid for ?

    Liked the decor and the air conditioning was amazing. It was spotlessly clean. The chauffeur was top notch! A few niggles, the fridge was a little loud to sleep with, the coffee machine could be better and the toilet paper needs a little more luxury feel. But overall, we would definitely return.

    The room is unique in that, it is actually a loft apartment. The wood floors are beautiful. I almost wish we were staying longer just so I could make a meal in the fully equipped kitchen. We arrived after 8 p.m. so had dinner at Madre restaurant next door . Good choice. Delicious. Everyone was so friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Never had a hotel bring our bags to our room before we completed check in to our room. Chocolates on bed was a nice touch. Will definitely return to this location next time I am in NYC.

    Cozy Room

    We enjoyed our stay and our room was cozy and lovely. However we did struggle with heating up the suite considering there was only one unit for all the space and I had to call at about 2am to ask why there wasn’t hot water. It eventually came back on but it was definitely uncomfortable and I felt that the staff were making excuses as opposed to offering solutions. When I checked out and they asked about our stay I told them and they said it was an inverted Hot and Cool sign issue. I think I should have been notified in advance or knowing they have this issue - they should’ve attempted to have it fixed.

  • 4,0.Fair

    We had a room on the lower level, also known as the basement. There must have been serious water damage at some point, since all of the floor boards were curled up and uneven. The WiFi was terrible—hard to connect to and very slow. The shower didn’t drain and the heater made loud rattling noises in the night. We spoke to the person at the desk, and to their credit they sent people to fix them, but how did they get that bad in the first place?
