    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    It was very clean and affordable. We had two issues though. One was the wake up call that didn’t come and the other was the hotness of the room. Too warm to get comfortable.

    Great location

    Upon arrival everyone was kind but our room was dirty. The building and furniture is very old so I was put off by the fact that even though the bed was made but there was hair everywhere. As if someone took a nap on top of the made bed. The room was very dusty too. So old plus dirty just kicked my OCD issues into overdrive!!! There was hair in the shower too. I did call down to front desk and they did have someone come in and clean up. So that was a plus. The staff was very kind and accommodating! The location is excellent!!! Next to the central park, subways and places to eat. My favorite part of the city! I will be coming back to this hotel again.
