Stayed in a connected suite for a few days. This was really good with the family. But, I would rather be in a Courtyard Marriott than shell out for this mediocre product. It is a much better value. Devil is in the details: 1. The seat cushion at breakfast looked like someone had an accident on it. Gross. Then they started vacuuming at the table next to ours…during morning service. 2. Look up in the elevator and the little chandelier looks like it has not been dusted since the beginning of time. 3. The makeup mirror in our room is falling off the wall. Why am I reporting this. Seems like housekeeping should notice this. 4. Speaking of noticing…PLEASE straight the lampshades on the property. Makes the place look like it is in disrepair when they are tilted every which way. From in the room to in the dining room with the sconces…80% of them are not centered. Easy fix to make the place seem higher value. 5. Bellhop (with empty luggage cart for another client) rode the elevator with us…these are not big elevators. It was not a high traffic time. No need to crowd us. Aren’t there service elevators? 6. The door that encloses the two room connect suite is not adjusted properly, jams, and MUST be SLAMMED hard to close…thereby bothering us, and all the rooms around us at every entry and exit of the door. No bueno. Why would I have to point this out? House keeping, every time they come in and out should notice. On the good side : Staff responsive and friendly Concierge was epic. Use them to setup whatever events or sight seeing you desire. Position of hotel and center of the action was great. In general the room was quite nice.

Stayed two nights for a weekend getaway. There was a line at check-in, it took a few minutes for waiting to get checked in. The lobby is under renovation so it's a pretty small available area. The room was facing 58th street with the opposite building facing right outside the window. The condition of the room is poor, stained and dusty carpets. Scratched tables, furniture falling apart. The rest room was clean, but the mini bar and night stands are pretty unsanitary. The size of the room was good for new York. The executive lounge is in a ball room, with inedible food. I never knew potatoes and eggs could taste this bad. Just inedible. There's not even water in the room except for the mini bar. Two water bottles after tax is ~35$. I cannot recommend this place unless you absolutely have to stay next to central park without a view.
