    Room with a view

    The room came with an amazing view. It was very clean. The hotel is in an amazing location and the staff was really friendly! The breakfast had a great variety of choices and was really yummy. The fact that there is a bar and that diner is an option is a plus.

    Parker says "Great hotel in a great location with superb staff."

    This is a fabulous hotel, in a great location, with superb staff. It's on 8th Avenue and 46th Street, so close to bars, Restaurant Row and virtually every Broadway show. The lobby is spacious and airy. Staff are incredible in all regards...check-in, concierge, baggage handlers. Now, this is a European style hotel, so the rooms are not spacious and they're a little sparse, but immaculately clean. Ask for a high floor and you'll be treated to a nice view. Breakfast is included, but beware...people tend to act like they haven't eaten in a couple of days. But the breakfast selections are amazing...American and European style (aka...bacon and eggs....or salami and cheese...plenty of fruit, yogurt, etc etc etc). I have stayed here multiple times and will always come back.

    Fab hotel!

    Really nice hotel, modern decor and clean rooms. Hotel staff really helpful and the bell boys were fab. Breakfast was busy but lots of variety, best to go down early around 7am. Location is great and turn right out of the hotel there are a couple of nice bars (Bar dough and Joe Allen) on the opposite side away from the really busy parts. The only downfalls were that there is no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms and the cocktails in the fashion bar were quite limited. However happy hour 5pm till 7pm you can get a really good deal on cocktails :) be careful using the showers as we nearly flooded the floor due to the strange draining but we worked around that. Would recommend 100% !

    Don’t do it !!!

    Don’t do it !! Just stayed here for 6 nights cost me $2300 room only .. for two adults and a 10 year old . Terrible sofa bed that wasn’t made up. Only two bottles of water left every other day although paid extra for a third person ! Rooms were tiny and the noisiest ever the doors slammed all night and people shouting and screaming then woken at early hours with the lift because people had to queue for the lift to go and have their breakfast ! When I complained went on deaf ears ! Location is good and the man that got the taxi to the airport was nice .. oh and they took a 300 dollar holding deposit even though paid in full and has gone out of my account .. worse hotel stay hve had for a long time

    Poor customer service

    Nice location, breakfast good, very busy. Tiny rooms. Poor rating as they ask for a $200 credit card bond. We checked out on 13 May, bank has told us they have a hold on the money till 10th June!! Other hotels release within 2-3 days, very disappointing, we need that money for the rest of our trip. Very poor customer service
