A lot to say about this 1 hotel... Let s start with the room: The famous" Park View" room has a very thin green band of the central park. A more accurate name for the room would be: "scaffolding view" as the workers renovating the building in front had a magnificent view of our room. We did agree with them to say that the interior design of the room is beautiful. Then the location: This is clearly the highlight of this place. Well located, easy to access. It s THE positive point of this hotel. Finally, all of this can be outcome with a good customer service. Unfortunately, they must have been away and replaced with interns during our stay. The staff did not explain anything when we check in, was barely aware of their own offering. (They charged us for all the drinks and food we already paid for in our hotel package, you better check the bill) The dine-in option is linked to a restaurant that is as aware of these packages yhan the hotel staff, hence you need to explain them every single time... not what you want to do when you are on holiday, right? Finally, the highlight is in the details. In 5 night, 1 Hotel managed to make us feel safe. They proved us that their fire alarm system is working. Nothing like an actual demo, hence we got 2 nights with this lovely alarm ringing at 2-3 AM. Always a good reason, even if a water leaking is rarely a cause of fire... Do not hesitate to go their, and you do not even need to plan for anything in New York, they will occupy you with a lot of impromptu activities!

Everything at this hotel was disappointing. The hotel had walls so thin we could hear other guests phones alarms going off. The fire alarm for the entire hotel went off at 4 am and someone came over the loudspeaker as if we were having a fire drills. There was no fire but rather a malfunction. The pipes and vents in the hotels are very loud making it impossible to sleep. Two of our three nights, I did not sleep. I’ve never been less relaxed than at this hotel. If you are looking to actually sleep or relax do NOT choose this hotel. In addition to lack of sleep and the hotel being incredibly noisy (not due to people but a poorly built building) there is no bar after 9pm, no food after 9pm or any other amenities. After we drank and ate some food in the minibar, it was NOT restocked for the remainder of our trip. Clearly a lack of effort or care about experience. Really surprised me that a hotel in Central Park south didn’t have a place to hang out or eat etc after 9 pm. The hotel is priced like many of the other higher end hotels nearby that offer amenities and a far more relaxing experience. Lastly, the hotels response to these complaints made it worse. They genuinely didn’t care (when they actually answered the phone) This hotel just about ruined our trip. There are far better options in this price range nearby that people should choose before considering this.
