Electrical issues and shower head
The bedside light and the bathroom lights would sometimes start to flicker without stopping. And I absolutely HATE rain shower heads - I understand there are space limitations in the shower but rain shower heads are stupid.

No frills. Comfortable place to sleep.
Exactly what I needed for a quick trip to NYC. No frills. Quite compact hotel room. No complaints at all - it was exactly what was described. I was only there to sleep and it was perfect for that.

8/10 Very Good

Not as good as my earlier experience here.
Staff at registration, the room cleaners, and those in the food areas were friendly and very helpful. The room itself was not as good as pod times square. The bed in room #1 was not a full size double, and the bathroom lights flickered with a buzz. I got assigned to another room.The second room had a full size double bed and better room layout but the heat system was very loud and the remote or the TV itself didn’t turn on. Ok for a trip where you are out sightseeing or going to theatre but generally not as good as pre-covid condition as i used to prefer this pid over the times square. And the cost of the room is much higher than pre-covid so value isn't great.
