Beautiful hotel and great rooms. Everything really clean and tidy, however the staff are bit and miss. Took ages to check in 2 rooms when we arrived. We were celebrating g my brothers 50th birthday but no offer of a bigger room although a lady next to us that had an issue with checking in got offered one! We then had issues on day 2 where my brother couldn’t get into his room. Really rude check in staff not helpful at all. After talking over me she put me on hold then transferred me to an answer phone! Managed to sort it with guest relations now waiting to see if someone turns up to service the room and if his key works when we go out!

Great hotel in good location

Very comfortable. Well furnished room with everything you'd need. Helpful staff. Good location and close to subways. Only concern would be lack of security - anyone can walk in and access elevators to rooms.

Very poor example of an intercontinental

I stay at many hotels (including Intercontinentals around the world) and his hotel disappoints in many ways. I was promised a VIP reception and package & also a room upgrade (I am also a IHG Gold member) but from the moment I checked in, everything was very poor. The staff attitude was very arrogant and condescending and I felt extremely unwelcome. The room was tiny, poorly furnished, tired and in need of updating. The bathroom was barely big enough to stand in and was quite unclean in many areas (hair & dust behind toilet, door and under sink). I waited nearly 2 hours for luggage and some packages to come to my room - in the end I had to go done and bring them myself. I tried calling the 'instant service' on the phone several times and they either never answered, transferred me to another never answered extension or just left me waiting. Unacceptable in a so called ''upmarket' hotel, never mind an intercontinental. IIHG please note: there is no club lounge and breakfast for one at $40 plus is outrageous. Try the 2 restaurants 50 feet away for much better service and quality and cheaper price. I do not recommend this hotel in any way.

Lovely Hotel in Mid town Manhatten

We were greeted by very friendly staff. Our check in was quick and stress free. Our room was spotlessly clean and well decorated and furnished. A lovely big walk in closet with iron and ironing board and extra bedding. Facilities were excellent with an in house business centre and gift shop. The restaurant was very pleasant and served delicious food. We were situated at the back of the hotel and heard no traffic noise at night, which is a great bonus. The bed was huge and the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. The room temperature was easy to control and the bathroom always well stocked with provisions.

New York break

Great hotel in a good location, staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant a bit pricey as was the mini bar but plenty of places to eat nearby. Would recommend Ruby Tuesday,s in Times Square.
