AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Classification): I love this minimalist design because it maximizes the smaller room with a practical desk and an amazing bed.
This classic property was modernized with barely a hint of the old hotel to be found. The bustling, sleek and contemporary lobby leads to smallish rooms with fresh, simple and straightforward style. Smoke free premises. 1331 units. 28 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

Location! Okay price.
Pros: Great location, walking distance to theaters and Times Square and access to tour stuff. Loads of nice and surprisingly reasonable food options. Clean. The fill-your-own water bag from the filtered water tap was great. Nice little bar of soap. Fast elevator response. Doorman got taxis promptly
Cons: The usual small room and tiny bathroom typical for NYC. No amenities, no in-room coffee (much less any breakfast) not even in lobby. Hallway ice machine didn't work any of the 3 days I was there. Long and slow lines for check-in and check-out. Travelers must take that into account. Extra $80 fee for internet use was demanded even when I explained I had no electronic device and would not be using any internet.

Pros: Location, clean room,
Cons: The woman checking me in was too preoccupied just to get through the process she was cold & aloof. I saw & heard the big set white man in a pink shirt at the next check in desk alongside her being more engaging & welcoming, wish some of this rubbed off on her. The hotel charges a $30 a day facilities charge plus tax claiming this charge covers wifi, a reusable water bottle, use of the phone for outside calls & the hotel gym. I did not know hotels charged for the use of their gym, why do I need to pay a fee for calls when I travel with my cell & will be happy to pay separately for any local or long distant calls I may use. Also they advertise offering free wifi! This is just an additional fee grab! Not happy...

Pros: The location and cleaning.
Cons: We booked into this hotel for its location and the appearance of having modern and clean rooms. And we were right, but there were other unexpected problems. The first one was that our room had a window to the outside located a few centimeters of a huge machine of conditioning of the building that emitted a noise that with the closed window was very high, causing that we rested very badly. The second is that when we asked for a room change they did not offer us another because of lack of availability in a huge hotel, and when they could not make it, they offered a morning coffee in compensation, ridiculous. We also asked for a converter for the our European plug and they sent us to the store to buy it, they never lent us one, which is the usual. I do not recommend this hotel for anything, the only good thing is the location and cleanliness, the rest bad.
