To small for the price
I just didn’t like the room at all. Plus I will not be going back there. Thanks

Hair in the bed and sink.
My only issue was the condition of the room. There was lots of hair on the pillows and in the sink of the bathroom. This made the experience unpleasant, especially in Covid times. Otherwise the location is great and the rooms are spacious.

Poor 2.0
The front desk doesn't like to be disturbed
Multiple view booking had a small window facing the wall. It's been 4 days and still no refund deposit which was more than the room cost. No help up front and theh stole my daughters iPad. The location said it was there but then they turned it off after the call

Exceptional 10.0
Nice hotel! Receptionist was AWESOME! but I didn’t like that I had to pay for parking! But I guess that’s what to expect in New York and I also don’t like that the room doesn’t have a microwave. Other than that my stay was awesome

Good 6.0
Horrible staff!!!!!
I arrived at 11:30pm and had to wait over an hour to check-in. The security guard was the only one there and he informed me that the only front desk staff had not shown up for there 11:00pm shift. Over an hour later the staff member who slept in showed up and had the biggest attitude of all! Never would stay here again and that says a lot because it has a good location.

Good location, nice services just note tv doesn't show full view and phones have issues connecting to front desk
Kerman, us1 night trip
Fair 4.0
Just terrible
This hotel is located in amazing location but that’s the only positive thing. Personnel was rude, room was tiny with the last time renovated probably in 19th century. Food sold was expired. I needed a desk to work but I couldn’t touch it because chair and desk were so dirty...I had to move out to a different hotel 3 days before the end of my reservation. Obviously they didn’t return me any money for early check out
Maria, us4 night family trip
Poor 2.0
15th floor with a view to 2nd floor no quiet
Terrible experience got a room on the 15th floor beautiful room, later came back to the room at 1 in the morning went to use the bathroom and the roof in the bathroom was leaking. Went down to the front desk was told the only other room option was on the 2nd floor. Room was dirty, bathroom was dirty and the entire night we heard banging on our windows and sirens. Unpleasant stay to say the least.
