Room without a view...

Windows stared directly into a brick wall 5 feet away. Construction woke us up 2 days in a row before 8 AM. Noise continued all morning. Construction worker watched me change. Tiny bar had broken air conditioning. Spa was great except for the construction drilling in the background. Tub didn't drain on first night until we requested repairs. Bathroom was tiny and old. When you pay top dollar and you feel like royalty it is always worth it. Unfortunately this hotel was unable to live up to the price tag. Definitely not a 5 star experience. If not for the location this would be a 2 star review.

Nice hotel

Highlights from our stay: Great staff! Everyone was extremely friendly & helpful. Room & lobby were just ok, I was not impressed & for the price expected something nicer. Our room was facing the street & at night we were able to hear quite a bit of street noise. Thankfully the hotel is located on a semi quiet street. The bar was over priced: $23 for a cranberry & vodka is over priced even by NYC standards. Overall it is a nice hotel with great staff however for the cost per night I would not return. I would prefer to try a different hotel.

Not a Luxury Hotel

When checking in the hotel, we found the lobby area to be clean but small. Upon arrival, our room wasn't ready however the staff made us feel welcome by offering us a beverage while we waited and they were extremely friendly. After waiting a few hours for our room, we entered and it was quite disturbing. It looked like a college dormitory. It was older, smelly and barely any amenities. Certainly not what one would expect from a luxury brand property. Truly a disappointment.
