    Pleasant stay in a central located hotel

    The hotel could not be anymore centrally located, a stones throw from time square, in addition to broadway theatres. There are local subways, restaurants and cafe which are walkable. The hotel itself was pleasant; the room had reasonable amenities (safe, iron, ironing board, hair drier, fridge). There were no facilities for drinks but the fridge was useable. The only down side we had to our room was the lack of hot water (at any time of the day). There was both a cafe and bar (cafe open majority of day, bar opened at 5pm). The bar had a happy hour, we recommend the cocktails! The buffet breakfast was more than reasonable, with multiple choice of both food and drink (repeated each day). Overall the hotel was pleasant and we would recommend.

    Good hotel but rooms should have tea or coffee making facilities. If not in room guests should be able to hire these

    Good hotel but rooms should have tea making or coffee making facilities. If unavailable for each room guests should be able to hire these during their stay. Otherwise a great hotel and well located. Thank you!

    Amazing hotel

    Our travel agent recommended this hotel and she was certainly right. This hotel is fantastic. The breakfast was superb with everything you could wish for. This set you up for the day. Great location, only 5 minutes walk to the hustle and bustle of Times Square. I emailed the hotel a couple of months before we arrived and as we were with my brother and sister-in-law i asked if they could put our rooms next to each other and asked for the highest floor possible. They did not disappoint in fact we had a balcony on our room and connecting doors so we could talk to each other. We were on the 25th floor and the views were incredible. The staff, cleaners, receptionists, bell boys, bar staff, restaurant staff were all very helpful, pleasant and polite. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Rooms were fresh and clean and the beds and pillows very comfy. I would recommend this hotel.
