The staff was very friendly. The service is great! Took service is available 24 hours and I love the complementary bikes. We rode our bikes to China Town and Little Italy early one morning. The room was nice (deluxe king). I wish the backyard didn’t look as shabby. I believe it is not part of the hotel property though. The hotel is “old looking” with very dark elevators and hallways. One thing I will say is that access to non guests overwhelmed me when we first arrived. It felt more like a club downstairs than a nice hotel. We could not hear the noise upstairs, so that didn’t bother us once we went up. I just would rather not deal with locals coming in and out of a hotel lobby for drinks.

One of the nicest hotels I've stayed at in NYC, (I stay often). The property is stunning, attention to detail amazing and the staff were wonderful. Every detail was considered right down to the SASE in the room (so you can provide feedback directly to the owners). I've been obsessed with Eric Goode since reading about AREA when I was in my teens, came in to celebrate my 50th. Worth every penny.
