Great hotel

This is a great hotel and superbly located close to Times Square. The heart of tourist activity in NYC. We couldn't find fault with the hotel, service or staff. The rooms are really well equipped. Great stay for 7 nights.

Hotel was very central and staff very helpful. Room was small and basic. Staff cleaned every day but under the bed was filthy and we found a boxers underneath ugh. The hotel was been renovated so dusty in lift and corridors but this did not effect our stay

What you see is what you get. location fab!

Hotel has a fantastic location. You are smack bang in Times Square in 2 secs! Hotel is simple - 3star! Basic but what you need for New York (bed, shower and heat) Heat wasn't working in our room so we were given an electric heater. It worked perfect and heated the room. I had one big issue... Every evening between 6-9pm the water from the shower was cold as people in the hotel tended to use showers at same time. This really irritated me as we longed for a shower after -20 degree cold weather outside. Other than that the hotel was good.

After initial problem with noise

Although the beds were extremely comfortable and the room very clean our problems started with the noise coming from the hotel plumbing. Extremely loud banging pipes from our neighbors at 5am and then our own was unbearable. The noise from the road was extremely loud ALL NIGHT LONG. The bedding was so minimal I was cold, a very light cotton blanket was all that there was and there was no heating only cold air so we had enough of all that so We asked to be changed to another room ASAP and a VERY pleasant helpful receptionist, sorry I can't remember her name possibly Marie :-) changed us to a lovely quiet room. After that, no issues it was a very comfortable stay. My advice if booking is just ask for a room off the main road. The plus of course is how absolutely perfect it is to Times Square amenities and you are in the heart of it.

Perfect for short trip.

We arrived with friends with a request that our rooms were close together. They were on the same floor which was good although our room was quite a good size but theirs was very very small. They said it didn't matter because they wouldn't be spending long in the room but on reflection it was very awkward when they were both trying to get ready. The hotel was in a perfect location and I would definately recommend it to our friends and family.
