The room we had was acceptable overall with nothing significant being an issue. The A/C unit was a bit on the noisy side but not enough to prevent a good nights sleep. Hotel could use an update. Just two main elevators for 18 floors of rooms is just not up to modern standards. Waiting for the elevator was 3-4 min each time we came/went. Breakfast included was nice with lots of selections. Nothing gourmet about the food, but no one was there preparing anything for you - all self serve.
Pros: The location to MSG. Literally, a 4-5 block walk to the main entrance on 7th Ave. Free breakfast. Internet connection worked fine, which is good because cell service was practically nil in the room. Bathroom was clean and a good size. King bed was comfortable
Cons: Slow elevator - only two to service 18 floors. Bit noisy A/C but it did work. Safe in the room did not work. Towels while fresh, could have been washed with fabric softeners to make them better.

Mediocre. As I believe others have said about the Wingate by Wyndham, the combo air conditioning/heating wall unit was loud when it ran, and it also ran a lot. That would seem to indicate that the hotel's insulative properties were insufficient to keep a steady temperature. This infernal noise made it very difficult to concentrate on the work I brought with me. In fact, the room was so inconducive to working that I felt I would be more productive shopping for a Fall outergarment for my teen. The desk chair was extremely uncomfortable, compounding the difficulty of getting work done. The refrigerator provided made a sound like something was brewing inside of it, going from more audible to less audible, every couple of seconds. That is like, what - 25 times per minute? Another distraction, especially since the recess for the fridge is beside the desk. Free breakfast was nice, but, with the exception of John at the front desk and a nice gal in housekeeping, none of the other staff I dealt with appeared interested in going out of their way to make a guest feel valued. Oh, yeah. The shower stall had 1/2 an outer wall and a shower curtain that hung 8" off the floor! I guess the extra floor drain in the bathroom and the grout holding the floor tiles together were expected to account for the water that teemed out of the stall when bathing. I could go on, but not much more. Criteria for AAA survey subjective. Example, location is fine if you want to be near Penn Stn, Herald Square, MSG. It is not so great if you desire theater, Rockefeller Center and the relative quiet of staying uptown vs. midtown. What does "room" mean? Is it the amount of room, such as square footage, or one's overall impression of the room? Public spaces were not visible upon entry. Must be tucked away somewhere almost like guests are discouraged from using them. Also, would I recommend this hotel to others? I would recommend if you need a place to stay in midtown, but only if you are able to get a deal on the room rate through one of the travel websites. Kudos to AAA for allowing members to speak their minds while still working with hoteliers.
Pros: 2 staff members were nice, helpful. Free breakfast was nice. 3rd party running it did a nice job.
Cons: Read above narrative, but I will add that I needed to remember to pull room door closed as the pump whose job it is to force door closure did not function fully. One more thing to think about, one more thing to slow you down in the fast-paced environment that is NYC.How could I forget this: I had NO CELLULAR SERVICE in my room (West side of bldg - the one with the razor wire, replete with bird feathers, right in front of your face as you look out your room's window, necessarily craning your head to get a look at the sky. View was gloomy as could be. I remember feeling like I was in prison.).

Pros: Location
Cons: Room was cold and the heater was very noisy. Also, I was put in a handicapped room, and I had no need for that, nor would I have wanted it. I was not told prior to entering the room.
