We booked a stay for June 7 2020 and had to cancel due to COVID We were promised our refund within 6 to 8 weeks Despite many e-mails and phone calls we have never received a refund

And now we can’t get hold of the hotel to speak to anyone All e-mail contacts we had are no longer accessible and when we try to call the hotel we are automatically forwarded to the head reservation centre in the Phillipines Needless to say we are frustrated that the hotel is not honouring their commitment The hotel is part of an international hotel chain and the lack of providing our refund is inexcusable and borders on criminal This experience has been so distasteful we don’t feel New York is a destination to be recommended to anybody

Charlene Hall

My family and I booked 2 rooms at this hotel for March 2020 Due to COVID New York City shut down and our trip was cancelled Every other vendor immediately returned our money now questions asked

It is now almost 2 years later, and we still haven’t gotten a dime back from this hotel after being promise multiple time we would receive a full refund To make matters worse I can’t even get a live person to talk to I have emailed and called This is theft and anyone thinking of staying at any of these properties BEWARE!!!

Jason Garrigan

Overall a great hotel, and definitely plan on staying here again if in the area Check in was easy, the room was great, and breakfast at the restaurant was really good and decently priced Couple weird quirks, no top sheet on the beds, no wash clothes, and didn’t seem a waiter knew I was sitting outside, but that’s probably just due to new staff/lack of staff everyone is experiencing right now

Would recommend this place and would stay again, think the money we paid for the stay was perfect

S Bess

Rooms are small but clean Personnel are friendly and helpful (with one notable exception) At check in, we asked about available upgrades and were told that we were receiving a complimentary upgrade

The man then gave us a room that, we found out later, was not supposed to be available for guests due to major maintenance issues and was NOT an upgrade even if the door and the sink worked properly It was clear that he deliberately lied to us as we found out two days later, when we were told that we had to move rooms and we should never have been in that room because of the well documented issues and that room upgrades were not a thing at this hotel and we hadn’t received one (which was obvious as soon as we saw our room) Moving rooms unexpectedly made us late for an appointmentOther than the deliberate lie and deliberately putting us in a room with a security issue (door did not shut properly), the stay was a positive experience

Bret Williams

A very pleasant enough remodel The linens and general vibe was nice However, a couple of peeves: the desk chairs are not on wheels

Makes it very difficult to move close enough to do work while easily getting up Second, the lighting in the bathroom is way too dimAlso, the wallpaper in my room was peeling at the jointsGreat location and friendly staff Needs some work, though to make it a 4 or 5 star hotel

Alan Spurlock

It was nice Once we got there We waited in the lobby roughly 35 minutes before someone showed up at the desk to help us

Breakfast probably took nearly 20 minutes to make All I ordered was a breakfast sandwich The room was nice and clean and the hotel itself is nice and clean The rooftop bar was pretty nice Really good views up there in the bartender and the staff are very accommodating They’re always checking to see if your glass needs to be refilled The fire alarm in my room went off twice randomly And it is ear piercingly loud One time when I was leaving a voicemail for a client and another when I was in the middle of a meeting with a client So that was fun

D Rl

This was an amazing boutique hotel! Very clean! Walking distance to pier 40 and 30 minutes to little island We had a great time! Gigi , front desk, was amazing! So helpful, super friendly and kind! She made us feel comfortable and welcomed and she was always there for us to help us and give us recommendations The coffee people knew exactly what we ordered the 1st time and were so good too

The house keeper was adorable and very helpful too This is a very nice and cute hotel! The roof top bar and Azul have amazing views from the city! I highly recommend this hotel! Thank you to the staff at hotel Hugo for everything!

Rachelle Papineau

Incredible stay! We stayed at Hotel Hugo for six nights and were very impressed with our stay The rooms are very clean and have everything you need In regards to some reviews I’ve read about the rooms being small, I think you need to have some expectations when staying at a hotel in Manhattan (a standard king/double room just isn’t going to be that large) but while the rooms weren’t massive they were well planned so they still felt spacious and like I said, they have everything you need

Bonus that the beds are VERY comfortable and that the decor/vibe of the hotel is on pointEvery interaction we had with staff was very positive and the location is fantastic for exploring the city It’s walkable to plenty of great restaurants and bars and there are two subway lines in proximityThe only regret I have is we didn’t explore the cafe/dining options (for lack of time, not interest) but we did make it up to the rooftop bar for a round of drinks and WOW the view!The next time we’re in Manhattan we will definitely be staying at Hotel Hugo again – one of the best all around hospitality experiences I’ve had in a long time

Andrew Roberts

The hotel itself isn’t bad, great location, was given an excellent view and the room was modern, clean, and comfortable I’m giving only two stars for a couple of reasons Foremost, the staff were terrible

I get that this is New York, but I expect better hospitality for the price I’m paying to stay here and my status as a Hyatt Elite Not one staff member I’ve interacted with at this hotel has been pleasant to speak withAnother issue is that the thermostat is broken, often showing that the room temperature is anywhere from 120F to 372F (picture with proof below) so any attempt to use the system turns on the AC, even when set to the highest temp on the thermostat I tried to call about this, but the phones in my room are broken too I called the front desk from my cell phone about these issues and was again met with short responsesAlso tried to have breakfast (Hyatt’s website lists it as Free Breakfast, that definitely isn’t the case), they’re only doing room service and the two small bowls shown cost a whopping $80 after tax and service charges This is flat out ridiculous! Don’t list the breakfast as free on your website and then expect me to pay skyscraper prices for basic hotel foodOverall disappointed by my experience here Hope you can help your staff treat your elites with a little more care, keep your rooms fixed, and be more transparent about food pricing and service options

Angie Morgan

I can’t find anything negative to say if I tried The front desk staff are so welcoming and kind They even offered us a mask when they overheard our family talking that someone left theirs up in the room

The rooms were spot clean when we arrived and the daily cleanings were the same Huge thanks to all the employees there who make this experience so wonderful And location is perfect Just feet from all the action in Times Square Will definitely stay here again and recommend to friends! A+

Elisa T

I had a great experience at this hotel From the moment I approached the main entrance, I was kindly greeted by staff outside The lobby smelled so fresh and clean, and and the staff at the front desk were warm and hospitable

My room was very clean, the decor was chic and the bed was so comfortable and the sheets smelled freshly washed! The bathroom was spotless and the shower was high end I had such a great and comfortable stay here I would highly recommend it to anybody looking to stay at a fantastic hotel in Times Square

This hotel is amazing I stayed here during 4th of July weekend 2022 When it was raining out they offered umbrellas to take out with us

The rooms were clean All staff were friendly and always offered advice and help Patrick, my bartender was my favorite here Most friendliest and accommodating There was even live Jazz One day i will return to NYC and when i do ill be returning to this hotel

rj webb

GREAT SERVICE from every person we interacted with: Rachelle (sp?)/warmly welcoming us at the treats bar, Carlos/valet and front door/super friendly and efficient, Jocelyn/don’t miss her local walking/subway riding/bus taking/ferry trip tours – fun, knowledgeable and high energy, Hector/a wonderful addition to the staff also very knowledgeable and passionate about the tours he leads Even the engineering staff is top notch The NYC Pulse feels more like an intimate boutique hotel than the typical hotel; we love this property and have stayed here four times in the past five years

Sharon Leaf

Our stay in NYC was awesome Really enjoyed the hotel and the front desk staff and breakfast staff were fantastic The front desk crew were there to answer any questions and able to make many arrangements for us, including getting car service

The breakfast staff were very efficient and kept breakfast running smoothly I never noticed an empty tray, they were always on top of filling the food before it was empty They did run out of raisins one day for the oatmeal and I mentioned it to a girl there and she promptly brought out more I would recommend this hotel if you plan to visit NYC Location is fantastic Walking distance of Times Square and Penn Station so you can literally get anywhere in the city Hudson Yard is also a short 15 minute walk away and is beautiful

Daniela Zúñiga

We had a great experience in this hotel Rooms are quite larger than other hotels with similar price, super comfy bed, the location is perfect and the breakfast is really good! With a lot of hot/cold options I loved the coffee station available 24/7, specially during this cold weather

Also, the kitchen in the room is well equipped, so you can buy frozen foods and cook them there I’d love to come back!

Dave Saia

We stayed here for a few days in mid-April 2022 The hotel is very busy, but everyone was extremely nice and professional The room was clean, and in great condition

I appreciated having a hotel room with a little more space and extras like silverware and a big refrigeratora rarity in NYC unless you want to pay a fortune! Breakfast was good The location of the hotel was convenient We’d stay there again for sure

Loved this hotel and position, loads of flower shops on the street, good Korean food nearbyThe views are amazing!A good walk away from central park etc, but your here to see nyc right! So walking is good!You see, smell and feel the city if you spend time on the streets, you won’t be disappointed with a stay here

Tyler Saidla

Location is good Staff is good for the most part They were out of complimentary shaving supplies so they requested I paid for one in the gift shop which I wasn’t going to do of course

Never had anyone not give me a free disposable shaver and sample size shaving cream No hot water most of my stay was the biggest negative why this review was so low It wasn’t a one time thing it was most of my stay Nothing was communicated regarding an issue Very sad to check out this Friday to not be able to take a shower while going to airport Not fun Water wasn’t luke warm it was literally ice cold They wouldn’t give me a single bottle of water they instead charged me for it Overall they need to step up their tools on taking care of their guests I wouldn’t stay again only for the sole reason of not being able to take a shower That should obviously not be an ongoing issue at a hotel

Janice Genetti-Cerullo

Raphael at the front desk & Shandel were absolutely amazing! Great customer service Our room was beautiful and they upgraded us knowing it was my friends 30th birthday The location of the hotel is perfect and the hotel is gorgeous

Rooftop is beautiful to take pictures, and the rooms are big and spacious and clean! Seriously one of my favorite Hyatt’s I’ve ever stayed at- definitely will be back! Thank you for making this trip special!

This place was good for a one night stay People are friendly, location was good, a little noisy with traffic and trains nearby, there’s a good bagel place on the corner There’s an Acme within 5-10 minutes for groceries

It was hard to get in touch with anyone at the front desk When we needed anything we had to go down to get it, which isn’t too big of a deal because of COVID protocolsThe rooms were clean, you could tell this place has a history to it with how the rooms and buildings are shaped The pool was a hit with the kids, wish it was open a little later The hallways kind of smelled weird The shower was a little weird because one shower head was sticking a little too far out of the ceiling and the other shower head wouldn’t stay put in its holder so we had to hang it onto a handleParking became a little difficult because they had a church in session on site and another conference going on

Erdal Duman

Hi I booked this hotel for my kids to enjoy the pool I have 2 boys

They were ready with their swimming suits thinking that they will enjoy with their parents However, it was a disappointment when we learned from the front desk that the city didn’t approve the pool’s opening This is not our fault and definitely not our kids They deserve the best I contacted the third party where I booked the hotel through that they wanted to talk to the manager about canceling The manager wasn’t here and the front desk associate informed that they will be back on Monday as I asked the third party to cancel but they said they have to talk to the manger

Elianys Perez

The hotel has a very simple and chic ambiance to it Staff were all very nice We got upgraded to a king size bed and a complimentary bottle

The restaurant The Wilson was pretty good as well, the heaters and the live DJ was an awesome touch The location was convenient as there are many restaurants nearby The rooms were clean as they would come in every day to clean them and provided new towels and restocked everything The bed was super comfortable The only thing I didn’t really like was the bathroom shower, it seemed to be a little dirty on the corners Other than that we had a nice stay

Marisol Estremera

Amazing hotel Very clean, comfortable and felt safe here

Staff was friendly and profesional Restaurant was amazing We recommend the hummus, ➡️ Mac & Cheese ⬅️ and the pumpkin cheesecake😊all was yummy No there’s no room service but who wants room service when there are so many walkable places to explore and have a cup of coffee while people watching👀 I only have on suggestion for the hotel front desk – have directions (maps) readily available for guests when they ask for directions to the airport from the hotel (via subway) We received two different directions that were opposite from each other I ended up looking at my previous notes from JFK to the hotel (via subway) and used that to guide us back I will definitely stay here again☺️ PS don’t forget your comfy shoes Everything is walking distance and you will walk a lot⭐️Lastly, I donated my socks, jacket and sweaters to the homeless I hope every guest does the same🙏🏻

Desiree Pina

Don’t get me wrong I really enjoyed the location and the room was nice , ESPECIALLY the BED!! So soft I must admit I wanted to take the mattress home

However, for the hotel to be so expensive you would think they would have a pool or room service at least! We had two beds and 4 people so we asked for a cotthey had none, which I’ve never been in a hotel that did not offer a cot upon request nor did I see an ice machine but maybe I missed it So there were a few disappointments but overall it was nice being close to Times Square

The Hilton Pearl River staff are all truly exceptional They are hard working, attentive and went above and beyond to insure our stay was a smooth and enjoyable one The pool is very nice and staffed with lifeguards, something that you don’t find at most hotels and I really appreciated considering that I am traveling with a small child

The restaurant had a great selection of food and the service was excellent The banquet facilities are beautiful There is a well equipped business center and fitness center The rooms are updated and very clean Everything was perfect! I would definitely recommend this Hotel

Margarette Allyn

The hotel is beautiful inside and out I felt like I was at a Great Gastby partyThe staff was above and beyond friendly and accommodating

The issue I did have is we did not know the hot tub and sauna were out of order until we and a group of kids went to use itThe front desk staff are left to tell guests this and management should do a better job communicating this to guest before hand; not the staff who seemed to have enough to deal withFor the amount of money per night for rooms, I would have liked to enjoy the hot tub and sauna as well as not pay to have a refrigerator in the room, a $10 charge for entire stayThey could also provide microwaves as well Families with children need to reheat food for when restaurants are closedOther than that I would stay again; I love Hilton hotels and again, the staff was amazing

Chelsea Victoria

Let me just say this… I stayed here for one night as a romantic getaway with my partner To our dismay, we were clearly treated differently This hotel is quite fancy and the room was very clean

My problem wasn’t the room or location, but some of the staff who made us feel very uncomfortable We had dinner at Two Henry’s, where we had a young waiter who was helpful and nice However, another waiter who was not tending to us kept asking questions Leading up to him asking us what room number we are in I thought it was inappropriate I don’t know why he thought it was okay to ask us for our room number Especially because he wasn’t even our designated server It seemed as though the staff wanted to keep an eye on us since I am Latina, and my partner is of very deep complexion We couldn’t help but feel like we were being watched It upset me Not that it’s anyone’s business, but we are both college graduates with respectable careers and to be treated like we were a threat or there for trouble did not sit right with me I enjoyed my room and the amenities, but unfortunately I will never stay here again knowing how the staff treated us I have experienced discrimination and tension before in my own personal experiences, but being with my partner, I experienced an indescribable feeling of projected shame It was unnecessary and I didn’t appreciate it

Jill DeCandio

Great location! Was able to walk to many attractions, restaurants, shopping, etc Quirky hotel Rooms are small and space is limited but if you are traveling alone or for a short stay I recommend staying here

Rooms are basic but neat, clean, and felt new I had a room with double beds The “chair” and “table” were hung on the wall; there if needed but really no room to put them I used the second bed as a place to put my suitcase and other belongings since there wasn’t a closet or even a chest of drawers No fridge in the room either…or ice makers on the floors The check-in / front desk people were kind of snarly even for NYC On the entry level there isn’t a lobby but on the second floor is a lounge area and a bar There is a rooftop bar which apparently is exclusive because its under lock and key and also has its own street access for people not staying at the hotel The website says you get a free cocktail when checking in but none were offered or given even when asked The hotel does offer various social events like “drag makeup workshop” and “drag bingo” but nothing was scheduled when I was staying there Another quirky thing, you can use the rotary style phone (which is actually push button) to choose a bedtime story to be read to you

Phil Trotter

Amazing room Amazing guest service! Family came to spend Christmas in NYC after my work trip We had such a good time

There view from the room killed it and the distance to all attractions, in all directions were walking distance Centralized and also dollar pizza spots on block away There is a great bar to get drink at and club on the top floor There was this coffee bar right next to entrance that was easy to get coffee at to Easy to grab coffee in the morning

Katie Mau

I loved this hotel and my stay! I had a city view king room and the view is absolutely incredible! I am a solo traveler so the room size and layout was perfect I only wish the shower was clear glass to enjoy the view from there! The convince of the coffee shop in the lobby made mornings on the go or being lazy a treat I had a high floor room and the nightclub noise did not bother me or interrupt my sleep

I was sad I didn’t go up to see the view Thanks to the staff for being amazing and kind! I can’t wait to come back to my new favorite hotel!

Loved my room A little expensive but I guess your also paying for the location since it’s right next to the ferry Front desk employees were so kind and helpful

Bar downstairs had amazing drinks Bartender, Scott, was great to talk to while we drank! Had a great time Scotty!!! Thanks so much for the amazing service! Would love to stay here again 😁🙏


Great location View depends on your room location The room was the min one should expect for a 4 star hotel

Nice bed and comfortable pillows Weird layout TV in sitting area would not turn off A/c in room kept slamming on and off and was a poor quality window rattler The front desk staff appeared to be burden by guests Security was lacking Although you’ll need a room key to access floors, this is by passed by guests allowing delivery people to tailgate No cameras on the floors Parking is $35 per night but no security patrolling the lotConvenient to NYC Make sure to get out and take a stroll on the boardwalk

Stayed here one night for Valentines Day in 2022The place feels slightly poorly maintained Lots of scratches in the woodwork, stains and marks

More than you’d expect to see in a hotel of this caliberHowever, I’m still giving it 5 stars because all my experiences with the staff were perfection from the moment I walked in the door Room service breakfast was wonderful and immaculately prepared and presented Loved our view of Central Park I wish to god I didn’t have to also see Trump tower, but I got over it The sun rose right in front of us over Central Park LovelyThe gym and pool areas are very well maintained The pool was divine and once again the staff at the gym area were top notch

Generally good experience overall The rooms and ambiance speak for themselves so I’ll focus more on a few problem I encountered Note the 4 star rating, obviously none of these were deal breakers

1 A group of wedding guests who I can only guess has lost their most basic social awareness to an abundance of drinks decided to make a town hall out of our quiet floor around 1:30AM Not a wonderful experience, especially for people whose sleep are not easily returned to once disrupted A call to the front desk returned the assurance that further disturbances will be addressed by a staff member At this point the damage was done and it was no use to pursue it much further2 The room service staff knocked on and tried to open my door on the first two days of our stay, despite our “Privacy” light being on the whole time I was only talking business meetings so it was no great offense, but imagine people enjoying a time of intimacy being so abruptly disturbed HOWEVER, I need to heavily emphasize that the room service staff, all staff in fact, were extortionately polite and helpful They work hard enough trying to keep us pesky guests happy so I understand if a little mistake is made on occasion

I had the most amazing stay at the Mandarin The staff was absolutely amazing From the outstanding doormen to the front desk and concierge

Special thank you to Daniel who went out of his way to send me a birthday card, dessert and champagne I stayed here for my birthday weekend just to enjoy a solo getaway The spa was just try it! I will only stay at the Mandarin in NY moving forward! Thank you for making my solo birthday special xo

I was a little worried about the hotel before checking in based on prior reviews; however, this hotel was perfect and did not disappoint The front desk staff was courteous and responsive, had my free water as a Hilton honors member, and my room was available for early check-in The room was the appropriate size for a queen – not too small

It was clean, quiet and very comfortable Water pressure was excellent, too! I sat in the lobby to wait for a friend for a bit and overheard the front desk staff interacting with customers, everyone was treated kindly and I don’t understand the prior reviews complaints with the staff The location is great, right near Chelsea – walking distance to so many things I would definitely stay here again!

We recently visited this hotel April 21st-23rd 2022 for my son’s 26th Birthday There were four of us in a room and we had plenty of room Our visit and stay was fabulous, hotel was nice, in a good location, most of all hotel staff was very friendly

Erica was superior with helping us chose places to visit for night life as well for day trips I definitely would stay in this hotel again Easy access around to minor necessities you would need during your stay Just was hoping for a better view However the rooftop is Beautiful and has a great view of the city

James Blackwell

The rooms were smaller than I’d imagine they’d be and there wasnt much of a view But other than that they provided great amenities in the hotel itself, though I could not find time to utilize them, The roof top bar, dining facilities, and fitness center all sounded great I had an incident in which I was forced to move my reservation and while I was accommodated I didn’t appreciate the verbal reprimand

All together though the staff and hotel were great and I would return and/or recommend to friends

Beautiful hotel! The location is great (make sure you walk about 50 ft over to “Kiss my Slice” and get some pizza *Note: the 2 slices and soda for 550 is only cheese pizza

) We stayed here on St Patrick’s Day The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are truly gorgeous Also, we had one of the staff book us a black car for the ride out to the airport the next morning It was wonderful! The cost was $60 and it was the smoothest, nicest ride I have ever had getting to an airport

I have nothing but good things to say about this Hotel! So to start off I work for Marriott and went to this hotel using my employee discount which means they in no way have to accommodate me when requesting certain things like room upgrades Despite this, before I even walked through the door I was assisted on the chat in a friendly manner and when asking for a higher floor he graciously provided me with a high floor upgrade Once I arrived I was greeted with a smile and water and the clerk who checked me in even allowed me to check in early by giving the option for a 19th floor room but located across from the elevator

Keep in mind I already know this room will be a bit on the noisy side and I’m not bothered by it so I accepted this offer, however if you like peace and quiet this room is not for you Again she did not have to do this but she did and also acknowledged my member status which was refreshing to see because it doesn’t happen very often The manager or who I assume was the manager was very nice and always had a smile on his face, the staff dynamic was like a family and it shows The food and drinks on-site are amazing and worked out great for me since I was exhausted from traveling all day and then having to leave for a 3 AM train Overall I give this place a 10/10 and I will absolutely be returning ! Keep up the amazing work guys 🙂

This is a nice option to stay Hotel rooms are really hotel rooms with the usual space you expect from a room The service was excellent and everything perfectly clean and in well status

Price wise is ok with what you’re getting in a very regular expensive city like this Not sure if it’d be my first choice for next visit, but definitely would consider it among other options One detail I must express a particular issue for my situation was that the safe was too small and my laptop didn’t fit, so I found myself a little stressed having to left my laptop out of the safe when I was out I stayed in a previous hotel also 4 stars that did have a larger safe Minor details as not restocking products such as body lotion is something they should take care for the price you pay Other than those details is a recommended place to stay during your stay in New York Location is superb

We stayed here for six nights and were really happy with this place There are very few options that could comfortably accommodate three people, because so few hotels in the city have room for two queen beds This worked for us because our daughter only joined us for the last couple of days

But it workedThese are not traditional Embassy Suites – it’s really an oversized (for nyc) room with a divider and a sitting area – but for two it was delightful The pullout sofa bed was TIGHT But it worked out for usWe didn’t do the breakfast and gave up on the happy hour after the first evening The room is too small for the crowd and knowing that the room rate was on par with other hotels that lacked those amenities made it easier for us to let go what would have been frustrating and stressful experiences And there are plenty of options aroundThe hotel staff – desk and housekeeping – were uniformly excellent Friendly and helpfulThe lobby is small but stylish, with lots of little nooks for some privacyWe loved the location in the garment district and near Bryant Park but close enough to walk to Broadway showsIf you want a tip on rooms… we did not pay for the higher floors but 1010 (and presumably other room 10s) overlook the deck where they have an outdoor cinema, which was a delightful break from the standard view into another building

To AVOID Dirty rooms, not a place to stay during a pandemic The room was dirty, upon our arrival we had to immediately request cleaning (hair+dust all over, and brown stains on bathroom door)

Stains were NEVER cleaned, despite our requests Dust and hair was also not properly removed On the second day, we requested our bed sheets to be changed as the under sheet was too small (see picture) and kept coming off which made sleeping uncomfortable This was not taken care of, instead they left us a spare under sheet next to the bed to change it ourselves (not what you’d expect after paying $600+ for a stay) Overall, it’s clear that rooms are NOT properly and thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis, the amount of dust can only be explained because of a lack of thorough cleaning The stay was unpleasant as we had to chase the reception every single day for different issues It is a shame because location and breakfast are great However, we’ll not come back and I wouldn’t have booked if I’d have known how things were going to be

Jamie Bailey

Stayed here 4 nights I would have given it 5 stars except the balcony on one side needed spruced up The balcony was very nice to set out on at night and listen to the city sounds and relax

The staff was very friendly When i had an issue the first morning they handled it immediately The social gathering at night was nice to grab snacks and drinks The area where the outdoor movie was played was well decorated and kid friendly Was nice to find the seating area at the end of the bed in our turned into a bed

We had a great experience during our recent stay The room was clean, comfortable, and good size The shower was terrific, with excellent water pressure! Each member of the staff was amicable and helpful

The location was great, being close to Times Square We were expecting it to be loud late at night, but it wasn’t Although we just passed through the lounge area in the main lobby, it did look very inviting The outdoor rooftop bar was a surprise We will stay here again

Hanan M’barki

So far, one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at The service was great from all the staff Alvin, the front desk agent was very kind and hospitable, he went an extra mile to make my dad and I feel comfortable, especially after he found out that i have lost my luggage during my flight

The hotel was clean and neat, very nice design and architecture, plus the location was on point, close to all attractions especially times Square The housekeeper lady was very welcoming as well and she asked me if I needed anything and that was kind of her I really loved this hotel and definitely will be my first choice to stay once I get back to New york

Stopped here in June with my wifePros – Location is great if you want to be close to Times Square, the lobby area and outdoor terrace is lovely with a great viewRooms are well furnished and clean, come with safe, fridge, hair dryer, iron

Staff were helpful and welcomingNegatives – Whilst we stopped at the hotel only 1 lift was working This caused queues to just get into the hotel and the lift was always over crowded when covid rates were on the riseAlso the list from the lobby to the rooms, all working but you could be waiting 10 minutes to get out the hotel as the lifts are full constantlyOver all it was a good hotel for couples and children from ages 10+ I would not recommend this to families with younger children
