Hidden Deposit
The hotel was nice and in a good area. I had a big problem with them taking a deposit out of my account without letting me know. They charged me $200 without telling me. I saw it after I checked out of the hotel. When I called about it they told me it was a deposit that would be refunded. But not telling me they were taking the money and having it be put back into my account days later was unprofessional. I won't be staying there again.

Living the fancy life
The room was very small. My daughter are on the bigger side and the bathroom was so tiny. We were just very surprised. The pillows were also way to soft. But we had a great time.

Elevators are slow and old, and rooms feel very dated and generally unattractive, albeit clean (how clean can a decades old fixtures and furniture be, though?). It was quiet where I stayed, although I had an ugly view of the rooftop and the adjacent building. Usually getting help at the front desk, for example to borrow an umbrella, was a long process of waiting in line for 10-20 minutes. The people at the front desk were usually pretty nice, though, and they did have the umbrella once I made it up there. The concierge was nice, though he did accidentally make a reservation for a week later than I requested which was a little embarrassing when my friends and I showed up at the restaurant. The area right around the hotel is great, with many restaurants, union square, and a walgreens right across the street. They charged a bunch of fees on top of my reservation and $13 for basic wifi every night. I tend to prefer a more modern feeling hotel so I would probably stay elsewhere if I were to go back, but it was a comfortable experience.

Great location but hotel needs some updates
The hotel is centrally located - just 2 minutes walk from Union Square. It is comfortable enough but our room was small, bathroom smaller and hotel overall was a little "tired".
