                  Hotel in great location only 1 block from Chrysler Building and 2 blocks from Grand Central station. We used food court at Grand Central for breakfast.

                  No diners nearby.

                  staff was efficient

                  No minibar in the room and no facilities for changing for those who leave late to take evening flights to Europe.

                  We liked the location and the price of the room. The room was not luxurious but quite comfortable!

                  We noticed that the rooms that were cleaned needed refreshing and that the infrastructures( plumbling, hot water,etc) needed upgrading.

                  Comfort, location, fair in answering a foreign tourist fair in price for the services offered.

                  staff polite but not particularly friendly, and the clearness of the room was not satisfactory.

                  Busy city hotel which serves a great breakfast. Quiet, well maintained rooms. Reception staff made us feel very welcome - even 'though we were arriving 1am. Location is great - very close to Grand Central Station, nice restaurants and main shopping streets.

                  I liked the location of the hotel and then clean rooms and good size bathroom

                  There is a lack of lighting in the rooms, also if they had tea and coffee facilities along with fridge it would be better and a bigger ashtray for smokers

                  Good service, had a good room with a great view.

                  One morning, they where no hot water, because of one pipe had broken, of course they other day the water was really hot, just an unlucky event.

                  We were very impressed by the staff...so friendly, professional and attentive. Upon arrival we felt warmly welcomed and well taken care of. The location was perfect and the beds were very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to NYC.

                  Limited seating in the lobby area.

                  The staff was friendly, helpful and accomadating. Located in Mid town Mahattan within 5 minutes of everything. The front desk found out we were there for our anniversery and sent us a bottle of champane.

                  The rooms are comfortable and well equipped.The hotel inside was very quiet, presumably due to good sound insulation between the rooms. Excellent location!

                  Internet access at the hotel's Business Center is very pricey.

                  Room was furnished well and well maintained. Liked chair that was replaced while I was there.

                  Was not provided with requested room "away from elevators and ice machine."
