God beliggenhed. Forholdsvis billig. Værelser på 9. sal med stor altan, men lille rum.
Beliggenhed, beliggehed!!! Et velplaceret hotel i Tribeca, umiddelbart ved Chambers Street subway og tæt på alt hvad man har brug for af nærindkøb og take away-food. Smart minimalistisk indretning, og små standartværelser til en (lidt) høj pris, men beliggenheden kan ved det rette pristilbud gøre det til et fornuftigt køb på Manhattan. Se dog også Hotel Cosmopolitan lige overfor, som er betydeligt billigere, men dog også med en helt anden standart (det skulle dog være rent og pænt). Lidt for dyrt i forhold til værelses-størrelse. Sterilt og uden den store charme.
Second time staying here in 3 months. Love the location and quality. Able to check in early and check out late this trip, which really helped our itinerary (was rushing into town to go straight to my workshop, so it was nice to check in quickly and be able to put bags in room instead of leaving with concierge). Also was able to upgrade to a king bed since my boyfriend came down with me last minute. Staff was super accommodating. Close to 1/2/3 and C/E trains, as well as a couple blocks from 6/N/R/Q/W trains, so it was easy to get around to east or west side. I'm a light sleeper and find these rooms to be on the quieter side (we were facing the back of hotel, which faces downtown). No fridge in room. Definitely a business feel to hotel, but didn't really make a difference to me. In fact, I chose the Sheraton bc in NYC hotels can vary widely and I found that chain hotels give a good consistent experience no matter the location.
This hotel has an attitude of over pricing everything, adding on fees including tips (that frankly aren't deserved) and having a staff that doesn't do much. When I checked out the man at the desk was flat out lying to the woman he had on the phone and when he hung up I said "Well she's going to be disappointed" and he smiled and laughed. That's what you're going to get here.
We loved staying here. It's undergoing renovations and it looks like it's going to be beautiful. No problems with construction ongoing!
The location was wonderful, right next to the A and C and 1, 2, 3 lines. All less than a block from the hotel. The rooms were cozy w/ great room temperature control. The staff were very friendly and helpful too. Starbucks right next to hotel, which was great because they didn't have coffee or fridges in the rooms. The hotel was doing construction on the floors below us and they started hammering, drilling, and sawing very early, so sleeping in on vacation was impossible. What really annoyed me was while checking out the guy ahead of me who was also checking out made a big stink about the noise and he was comped a night. I complained and only got any apology. Perhaps, if I was not a young Hispanic woman, but a rich looking white dude I would have gotten comped too. The water temperature was hard to control as it was either frigid or scalding.
