We had a wonderful experience! The hotel is conveniently located. We took the train in from Albany, emerged from Penn Station and looked right at the hotel. We were given an upgrade to a suite, and the room and view were outstanding. The room was dated in some ways, but it was immaculately clean. The view of the Empire State Building was also fantastic. We felt very safe and secure with the constant monitoring and card checking at the elevators, and all the staff was exceedingly helpful and friendly. The only negative I can come up with was that the bathroom, especially the shower, isn’t designed for anyone above 5’8”, maybe, and at 6’0”, I had to duck to wash my hair. There were also some small cosmetic issues (one knob was missing on the desk drawer, the porcelain in the tub was definitely showing age). But we also loved the art deco style and feel, especially the cool star lights!

As other reviewers have said, it is definitely a mixed bag. It is a beautiful historic art deco building close to Penn Station- which were the primary draws for us. The beds and linens are clean and comfortable, albiet small for doubles. The rooms are clean, though small and dated. We supposedly paid more for a larger "metro view" room. If this is larger I'm afraid of what is "normal". To be fair though, the view is incredible. We are on the back side of the elevators and they are LOUD all night long as are our neighbors. The shower is scary- every few seconds you will get a burst of scalding hot water no matter what you have it set on. As far as the surrounding area-yes, there are lots of tourists and it is a busy area, but some side streets feel pretty shifty. They do have security in the lobby though, which is helpful. If you are doing something at Madison Square it is probably the closest you can get. Overall, I expected some quirks, as we enjoy staying at historic hotels, but I am certainly wondering if we could have done better for the price.
