    Location, 5 mins walk to buses for downtown and central park. Hotel is located in a less busy part of the city, however plenty of restaurants adjacent. Room very comfortable.

    sometimes difficult to regulate room temperature

    The location

    At my reservetion from the booking they told me : fresh flowers, bottled water in the room. We never saw these things The sofa bed was closed .we arrived at 11.00pm Saturday night after 10 hours in airplane and we try to open the sofa , made the sheets for sleep!!!! The hallway and the elevator area has no air condition !!!! No refrigerator in the room they tolled us that needed to be asked fot it The wi-fi costs 12.95$ every day (I knew it from the booking reservation ) but for one device only , even if the same person has two devices like me!!!! (One iPad And one iPhone) Old building , not clean and we saw at your site the veranda at the top floor o my god !no one there.dirty and we made the mistake to call a doctor to speake with us and to have a drink with him !!!! Terrible afternoon. We were 3 women and one of us is 80years old!! We came for medical reasons The breakfast area has to cold from the air condition My mom had 6 hard days at this hotel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The room was small and had no frigobar. Heating in the room was too high and it took an effort on my part to finally have an engineer to fix it!

    Good

    We liked the espresso machine/ cofffee/ tea being avail at all hours. Breakfast was nice.

    We stayed on the 9 th floor and the elevator was virtually non existent due to construction on the rooftop? Front desk staff was not as friendly as hotel 373 where we stayed the following for the same amount of comfort and a better price and locale.

    Close to sub way and central park

    Broken sofa bed and closet door had no closing latch we moved from one suite with a loose toilet and no privacy wall between living room and bed room. moved to a great suite with bath room between rooms

    Very good

    Calm quiet atmosphere away from the bustle of downtown. Residential locality

    Lack of air conditioning could be a problem when it gets really hot.

    Fabulous

    The location was perfect for our plans. Close to the subway and bus. Great access to Central Park and museums. Beautiful rooftop with a nice view of the area. The staff were very accomodating. The continental breakfast was adequate. The room was small, but the bed was very comfortable. It was a bit stuffy and warm and unfortunately no way to ventilate except by opening windows that had no screens. Overall, it was a nice place to stay.
