    Good

    We had a room on the. 10 th floor opposite the Roosevelt park and the view was great. The noise level at night was still quite high due to police sirens and taxi horns, locality to the tube was great and the system works well with only 4 stops to TimesSq. Takes about ten minutes. Room was nice and roomy and the restaurants in Amsterdam and Columbus st are close and good.

    The staff did you a favor just to talk to you. They need to be more customer focused and not. make you feel like they are doing you a huge favor as it is not a cheap hotel at all.

    that we were finally recognized as a repeat client after visiting the hotel for 15 years.

    Very good

    Very well located with the subway just a minutes walk away. You also have the Natural History Museum right in front of the hotel as well as an entrance to Central Park. Location and budget wise this is a great hotel to stay at.

    The one aspect I found hard to believe was the lack of free Wifi. You could pay $35 for Wifi but that was limited to one device and only for 5 days. I pay less at home for an entire month and limitless devices!! It is surprising for a hotel in New York to offer such a bad service for something that is free these days in most hotels.

    Very good

    Location Light sunny room Very comfortable bed Plenty of clean towels Good bar and bar staff Bar food was also good if expensive

    Had buffet breakfast in the Library on last day 4/10/12 which was very disappointing. It cost $17 and only one employee was attending. The food was very average. Room was noisy and in one part of the room two ladies were packing goody bags for a conference. Just glad it was not my honeymoon/celebration. No fridge in room (could have for daily charge of $10!!!!!!)

    Exceptional

    We had loads of room, staff were efficient, helpful and friendly and the buffet breakfast was quit good. Shower worked a dream....easy to turn on etc

    Nothing, but a bit pricey, probably better than nearest competitor. Also WiFi could be cheaper

    Small hotel in a quiet neighbourhood with friendly staff, close to subway and hence very convenient to all attractions of New York.

    The price and the location were ideal. They also upgraded our room to give our one year old son more space to run and play which was great.

    Superb

    I liked the room: comfortable, clean, met needs very well. Those at the desk were very helpful. Location in Upper West Side and near subway station--perfect.

    Coffee in room would be nice. Free use of hotel internet services and printing would be good. Would like room service.

    The hotel is very well located in a quiet part of town. It is clean and quiet and the staff are curteous. Front rooms on top floors have a great view of the Manhattan skyline.
