The price of the hotel did not match the physical condition of the room, and housekeeping walked in on me without knocking …..

Needs Improvement. Too Little for a Big Price
While the lobby was beautiful, the rest of the hotel was dark, dreary and tired looking. The elevators were ancient and the halls were like caves of darkness. Rooms lacked amenities I expected from a $300 a night hotel room: no coffee maker, no place in the tiny bathroom to store stuff and the shower was difficult to work and in fact, I could not get the hand held wand to work at all. And I hate the "rain" overhead shower nozzle. Very uncomfortable. Also, there were no premium TV channels either. I couldn't even find a PBS station which is free and usually on every TV in existence. Also there was no lobby bar, no room service, no breakfast coffee, no fruit bowl-nada.

8/10 Very Good

We booked this hotel as a couple in their young 30s spending a leisurely weeked in NYC. Pros: The location was perfect--walkable to broadway, MomA, the natural history museum and central park. Check-in was easy, and the staff was very helpful. Overall clean. Cons: The room is a bit dated; nothing terrible, but paint is peeling in some areas. We couldn't adjust the temperature in our room. Wi-fi was also very spotty. Hotel bar is currently closed (only the rooftop bar is open, and you likely need a reservation for). Bottom line: It did the job for what we needed--somewhere to sleep comfortably at night in a safe area.

Suggestions
Add guard rails in bathroom Shower handle is falling apart. Location is great. General feeling is welcoming and very warm for a big city hotel. Our favorite.
