Excellent hotel
Stayed with my son, it was his first visit to NYC and we told the check in person when we arrived. She was very friendly and my check in was easy and fast. We got into our room at noon! later that evening, we had cookies, milk, chocolates and a 1/2 bottle of wine waiting for us, with a personalized note wishing us a great trip and fun trip for my son. What amazing customer service. All staff at hotel was very nice, helpful and friendly. Ate at the restaurant and staff there was also very friendly and service oriented. So impressed with this hotel and highly recommend. Also the location can't be beat, you're close to subway lines, the park and 5th ave.

Service and support
The concierges were all very helpful. I did have one incident where I forgot to pick up my tickets for an Ellis Island tour at 1:30. I realized it at 11:30 and tried to call the concierge desk but they were busy so I asked for help from the front desk. They said someone would call me back. After 45 mins of not hearing from anyone I called back to talk with a manager. The manager assured me that someone would call me back--they didn't. Finally, I was getting very worried as I needed to know exactly where the boat was leaving from and needed to know if I could get the tix printed on site so I kept calling back as I had left the hotel earlier that morning and was too far away to go back. After an hour and a half of calling, explaining, apologizing, and hoping that someone would simply email me the ticket, I was connected with a concierge that did help me. I realize that the initial mistake was my error, but I would have hoped that I could have been helped after the first call.
