    Staff was friendly and rooms were clean and tidy. Turn down service in the evening was a plus. Great restaurant and bar, Bread and Tulips on the premises plus lots of restaurants within walking distance. Liked the location in the city and 4/5/6 subway nearby at 23rd. Would definitely return

  • 8.0.Very Good

    We arrived a little after 3pm (check-in) and our room wasn’t ready. At 3:30 we were told it was ready. We had asked for a quiet room and when we got to the room it was in front of the elevator doors. We went back downstairs and were told that their elevator doors were “quiet”. I explained that it isn’t necessarily the elevator but the people coming on and off the elevator. They finally agreed to change our room and we got into the room at 4:00. The TV didn’t work - someone was sent up and had it working by 5:00. The day we left the TV wasn’t working again. Housekeeping was very kind as were the doormen.
