Not having wi-fi in the room was a big disappointment. The room was much smaller than I expected.

Absolutely amazing!!! Would recommend this hotel to anyone. We have stayed at very expensive hotels in Times Square and this beats all of it by far. Always coming back here!

Lovely hotel

A very comfortable hotel which was available at a good price on Cheap Tickets. Convenient location for upper West Side (American Museum of Natural History, NY Historical Society, Central Park, etc.). Wi-Fi free in lobby and on 2nd floor, but charge for use in room.

Long weekend getaway

The location of the hotel was fantastic and the old world feel was romantic and nice. The only disapointing thing was the restaurant that was atached to the hotel. The food was not very good and we didn't prefer this.
