The Watson

Was a great location, not too far from Times Square, Central Park and also the main Subway - Colombus Circle. So it was very easy to get the Subway Downtown and Uptown. The staff were all very helpful if we needed any information.

Ticks all the boxes

Pros: Everything
Location: Right next to Central Park, Columbus Circle, Hell's Kitchen eateries
Excellent hotel, location, staff, pool on roof. I highly recommend. The general manager Mr C is fab. Such a kind man who really went the extra mile for us. If you're respectful and polite at the hotel, the staff will go out of their way for you.

Ticks all the boxes

Yeah a good choice. Excellent location and a lovely rooftop pool. Let downs are the loudness of the cleaners in the corridors in the mornings, and the lack of atmosphere in the bar.

Hyvä siisti hotelli lähellä metroasemaa

Pros: Hyvä hotelli.
Cons: Remonttia tarvitaan tässä hotellissa huoneisiin ja aulaan, on aika kulahtanut.
Location: Lähellä metroasemaa Columbus Circle ja Carnegie Hallia sekä 8 th Avenuen ravintoloita.
Hyvä hotelli lähellä metroasemaa. Kaipaisi kuitenkin remonttia, aula ja huoneen kylpyhuone varsinkin. Rauhallinen huone plussaa.
