4/10 Fair

Broken toilet never fixed.
Disappointing overall. The toilet in my room wasn't working as soon as I checked in. It was just slowly flushing. I told the front desk the first morning and, when I returned later that night after work, it hadn't been fixed. So, I used the lobby toilet. The next morning, I asked the front desk again to fix the toilet. When I returned later that night after work, it still hadn't been fixed but at least someone had looked at it. The front desk told me nothing and I never got an email to switch rooms or at least apologize. In short, I had to use the lobby toilet for my whole stay. Pretty lousy if you asked me.

Bad Accommodations and A Weird Policy
It's not very accommodating. No cot available, phone didn't work, they knew nothing about the parking situation, and the floor was kinda dirty. Additionally, though this may be an NYC or big city policy so it's generally fine, they would not let my friend past the lobby up to my room. If that's not your cup of tea or that will be annoying to you too then don't book a room here.

A bit shabby but clean and comfortable
The room was small, clean and comfortable although it was odd they did not have a mattress protector under the sheets. The walls were scuffed and the light switches cracked. Otherwise it was fine if all you need is a place to sleep. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the building was secure.

2/10 Poor

Worst. Hotel. Ever.
Horrible. Probably the worst hotel I’ve booked which as an avid business traveler is 100s of nights. Someone had smoked in the lobby. 2 people were being booted out of their room, their luggage was trash bags. 3.5 stars on No. To make it all worse, did nothing. It’s their false rating I even knew this hotel existed. If you want a good place for a crack den, this is the hotel for you.

6/10 Good

If you want the basics, and to spend little time in one's room it was fine. Would have appreciated extra blanket instead of having to crank up the portable heating unit blowing hot dry air. Was woken up each night by people clanking around, opening large boxes and pushing a trolley in the hall outside/stairwell at early hours right outside my room - which I felt through my earplugs and white noise app. The water pressure in the shower and sink was very weak.
