    Individual guest reviews

    • Family with children
      7.8

      The location was great. Close to everything without being right in Times Square.

      The rooms were a little sparse ie. no area carpet. Maybe a few more pictures on the walls.

    • Family with children
      8.2

      Excellently equipped room - with Bosch appliances, Subzero fridge, dishwasher, and washer and dryer (what a bonus! helped us packed less). Huge space considering the location, in a prime location in Manhattan. Loved staying in a suite - felt like a "home base" for our family of 3 traveling with a 4 year old. Size of room, quality of furniture - all great. Comfortable, nice decor, everything we needed for our trip. Location very convenient to subways, Times Square, 24 hour pharmacy, Bryant Park.

      Rooms were dark - there were plenty of windows but they were all facing dark alleys so not a lot of light. Front desk personnel always seemed very busy and did not look up to greet you - not a big deal but not on par with luxury hotels. When we did ask questions, they were more than happy to help. Very helpful when we came back with packages and a stroller and tired toddler. No carpets in the bedroom or living room - would have warmed up the place, seems that furnishings were incomplete in that way, i.e. no throw pillows on couches or bed. Also, not enough lighting in the room - overall seemed dark, esp since no natural light in the room (esp bedroom in AM).

    • Couple
      8.2

      The room was enormous with all the things we needed for an extended stay. The location was perfect for accessing the key sites around New York.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      The location was convenient for us, 1st time travellers to NYC. The front desk staff, Mustapha, Don and Julio was attentive and eager to assist.

      The room amenties and equipment lack proper maintance and the platform around the bed poses a danger. It sticks out too much from the mattress and one has to constantly keep a look out and not walk into it.

    • Family with children
      10.0

      Stuff, room, location, everything was really good

    • Single
      8.2

      size of the units, amenities inside the units

      lack of decent amenities like poor gym etc

    • Couple
      7.4

      Spacious room Facilities

      Because of the location, some nights, it was a bit noisy. The other disadvantage is the shades. You can not lift the shades up, it makes the room dark.

    • Couple
      10.0

      the staff were very helpful. the room was well equiped, we made our own meals most of the time which saved us a lot of money.

      It was a lot of noise from time square at night, the windows could be double glazed to reduce noise.

    • Single
      10.0

      Everything about the hotel exceded expectation.The facilities in the lounge and bedroom, the quality of the fitments in the kitchen area,the design and decor, the air conditioning (very welcome when the temperature hits 100degrees!) and the general ambiance were all outstanding. It gave the feeling of 'living' in New York, not just 'staying'. The staff were excellent, helpful and friendly at all times and went out of their way to assist an 'out-of-towner'. The business and fitness facilities simply added to the class which exudes from the hotel and aka Times Square played a huge part in making my stay in New York memorable

    • Single
      7.8

      Rooms are very large. Hardwood Floors throughout. Great location. Speedy elevators.

      Certain quality aspects of the rooms were not worthy of the price - paint, lighting in the bed room.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      Centrally located, easy access to all the ny sights. Large comfortable rooms with more space and flexibility than conventional hotel rooms. Far more positives than negatives wiht this hotel.

      Poor lighting in the reception area makes the hotel entrance look dingy. Horrible pink lights in the lifts. Watch out for the "trendy" wooden platform around the base of the beds - it may look chique but hurts like hell if you accidentally smack your foot against it!

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      This minimalist hotel was clean and had all the amenities an executive suite should have. Great for long term or short term stay. Great location, very central.

      Paying extra for house cleaning is not something they tell you till you check in which is deceptive. This was a hotel not a serviced apartment and therefore housecleaning is a must. The TV could also be bigger, especially considering the size of the room. The lobby is a little depressing because of its size and lighting...not a very pleasant first impression, however the room made up for it.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Good deal of space, laundry, excellent location, business centre.

    • Single
      9.6

      Spacious room, good location, friendly staff

      Fitness center was very small and combined with the business center - a little strange

    • Single
      9.2

      Spacious quarters, separate sleeping, office and living spaces, full up to date kitchen facilities, relatively quiet, well equipped for internet and tv entertainment, washer and dryer a big plus, 24 hour access to gym facilities, proximity to Broadway and other cultural events in addition to a full range of subway lines, helpful and pleasant staff.

      Horrible sleeping pillows (foam and feather) in bedroom, room #810's limited exposure to outdoors (difficult to determine prevailing weather conditions however, limited street noise was an asset), fitness centre could use an auxiliary fan in main and tread rooms, a source for water would also help.
