Nice, tidy hotel which is relatively central. Rooms are not large but not smaller than what you’d expect from an NYC hotel. Nice staff and quite hassle free. Recommended.

Tiny rooms
Very tiny rooms- not enough room to even put a suitcase. I've never seen a hotel room that small before. There was also mold in the bathroom

Will go back, everyone who works there was lovely.
HGU is a lovely hotel in a great location. The staff are super nice and helpful. There isn’t a door attendant so for the valet service you park in front of the building and check-in with the front desk and they take car of your car. There is a cafe and restaurant and a very nice lobby. I didn’t end up eating in the hotel because the area has so many great places to eat but I was glad for the option. I only wish the caffe were open the whole morning because it would have been nice to have coffee while I waited for my car in the morning. This is definitely not a self-service amenity kind of hotel so no coffee pots in the room or mini bar. There was a button on the phone for room service but no menu so I couldn’t tell if this was an active service. I did see people getting restaurant delivery services like grub hub. The beds are super comfortable and there was a window seat which was very cute. Will definitely be a nice place to go back to as a couple. For solo travel, I felt well looked after, comfortable, and safe.

Great vibe, service and location
Loved the location and vibe of this hotel. The front desk staff were great and the rooms are well appointed. Bedding is very comfortable. My only minor issue is that my room didn’t have any natural light coming in and it could have used more lights to illuminate areas like the wardrobe. But I would definitely stay again!
