Subject: BLACK MOLD Dear Potential Guest, I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to express my deep concern regarding the unsatisfactory experience my family and I encountered during our recent stay at this property. Upon arrival, we were disappointed to find the front desk unattended, and the initial interaction with the associate left much to be desired. Furthermore, our excitement for a reasonably priced hotel near Central Park quickly turned into dismay as we discovered mold in our shower. Despite our multiple attempts to address the issue through various channels, including contacting the front desk and Marriott chat, we only received a room change option from a seemingly indifferent manager. To our dismay, the new room also had mold, and this pattern continued in subsequent rooms. The hotel staff acknowledged the mold issue but was unable to provide a mold-free alternative. Consequently, my wife, 2-year-old daughter, and I had to endure the inconvenience of relocating multiple times, with health concerns arising due to the evident mold. This experience has significantly impacted our trip, turning it into a last-minute scramble to find an alternative Marriott location. I strongly advise others to reconsider booking at this property to avoid similar health and comfort issues. **The pictures attached are from three different rooms/showers.. All of which I have corresponding videos to verify room numbers and video of shower findings. I also have video evidence of interaction with hotel staff in room’s identifying/confirming the presence of mold.**

Overall great value for the money considering the location and ease of access. The hotel rooftop bar was closed and it used to have views into Central Park, but it no longer does due to a new building construction across the street. Beware, plenty of construction noises from sunup to sundown. Also, if your room is located next to the elevators, you’ll hear them running all night.
