    Very sad the pool deck was only seasonal! Even if the pool is closed it would have been amazing to see the city from the deck. Overall it was great! Clean hotel, friendly staff. Will def. be back! Oh and the wings at the skylight lounge were to Die for. We are them for 3 nights in a row!

    Location is what gave this property a star for me. It was easy to get to most places in downtown by taking the subway. Your a walk distance to time square and the SW corner or Central Park. Be prepared for absolutely irritable staff. We stayed 4 days and every single day had a different staff member with what felt like no patience regarding questions....our room had ants. They did move us for it. Also the walls are paper thin...we also got moved for a total of 2 times because the noises in the rooms across the hall were so bad.

    Good 6.0
    It is a great location and the rooms are a nice size for the price. But, you can hear everything from the neighboring rooms. I can’t tell you how many door slams I heard all hours of the night. I woke up to the smell of overwhelming cigarette smoke one morning. That night I had to change rooms as the bathroom ceiling was leaking (think a moderate rain) into my bathroom. At least that next morning I didn’t have to wake up to the smell of smoke. But I was tired from being woke up by the sound of water, having to pack and change rooms. I will not stay here again.

    Good Value
    What you see in the photos is what you get. For this price, I found this to be a decent hotel in a good area. The room was clean but by no means luxurious, although the beds and pillows were very comfortable. Overall, I would stay here again.
