Nice hotel in a great location
Nice hotel with a great location and comfy beds. Super fast elevator was great! Destination charge was an annoyance - they charged $28 per day and gave a credit back for the bar restaurant but it had to be used daily and only once (which they don't tell you). Don't get breakfast included because you can use the credit for that. Any disputed charges are impossible to resolve and it wastes time.

Two small requests were received with an attitude from staff.

Not a satisfied customer!
The hotel was nice, and clean. My complaint is, I did not get the reservation I booked. They put us in a smaller room, next to the hotel air conditioning unit that was very noisy. I did not like the destination fee they charged.

Great hotel experience
Picked this hotel for price and valet parking feature. It was so much more once we checked in. The room was spacious for NY standards, clean, quiet, modern, great view of Chrysler building. We arrived early in the day and they let us store our bags without a problem. I asked for a room away from the elevator and they accomidated my request. At the last minute we decided to take the train so we didn't need the valet parking. The hotel was close to Grand Central. Definitely will stay here again. Only complaint -the snacks in the room were ridiculously expensive. I picked up the M&Me then read the sign that said if you move anything you'll be charged for it-hope that's not true
