I have stayed here often. I like it, it's a home from home. It's comfy, characterful, and clean. This time though I had a room with a very very noisy AC, which I out up with for a couple of days with plugs in my ears. In the end I asked to be moved which they did. My next room was much better. I found out many rooms haven't had their AC upgraded, so ask if you are about to stay here. Having said that, I like my experience here always.

Gute gelegenes Hotel, aber recht hellhörig. Sauberkeit ist ja in den USA reine Interpretationssache. Wir hatten die Junior-Suite im 8. Stock. Es hätte einen Stadtblick geben sollen, was aber im 8. Stock nicht möglich ist. Super ist die Nespresso-Maschine im Zimmer. Neben der Rezeption stehen immer Müsli und Joghurts die man sich nach Bedarfs nimmt. Wir fanden es ok, aber jetzt nicht „hervorragend“ wie es wohl andere fanden...

Sehr zentral gelegen

Das Hotel sah sicher bessere Zeiten, Teppich im Zimmer hatte einige Flecken. Klimasnlage nur zum Teil funktionsfähig und sehr laut. Ausstattung im allgemeinen genügend. Zimmermädchen machte eine hervorragende Arbeit, alles immer blitzsauber und aufgeräumt.

Siivous ylimalkaista. Imurointi keskeltä huonetta ei riitä. Paperiroskaa huoneen kulmissa oli tullessa jo valmiina ja samat roskat edelleen olivat lähtiessä. Kylpyhuoneen lasihyllyjä ei pyyhitty koko kahden viikon aikana. Kasvopaperi telineen päällystää ei liene pyyhitty kuukausiin.

Hyvä taide & NY tutustumisloma.

Hyvällä paikalla lähellä Grand Central Terminalia ja metroa. Myös kävelymatkan päässä hyviä kohteita, mm. Central Park, MoMa ...
