    Ok, but need renovation.
    Great location. Rooms should be renovated but are ok. Small details like leaking taps, difficult to flush toilet, weak air-conditioning and wear & tear in general.

    Decent stay but needs upgrades
    This is my third time staying at The Watson. I love the area—two blocks from Columbus Circle Subways and Central Park But it’s off the touristy track, quiet, and there are a lot of places to eat and drink nearby. It’s also close to the Hudson River Path. The hotel is in need of renovation. My toilet didn’t flush well and the water pressure fluctuated depending on the time of day. There is no fridge and ice machines are on every other floor only. The AC did not adequately cool my room. Yet, the bed was comfy and housekeeping did a good job. There is a pool, but the hours are 10-7:30. What??? Nobody was allowed on the rooftop after 7:30 which was a bummer especially with the gorgeous sunsets. Small and slow elevators. Huge lobby but expensive drinks and they charge to stow luggage. $20 a night fee...I hate resort fees and if you don’t use the pool or gym not sure what it’s for. Overall, a decent hotel but there are better deals to be had.
