"underwhelming but good"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed August 17, 2019 NEW
Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and even though it wasn't as "posh" as the photos made it seem, as the red pillows and the flowers in the photos definitely made it seem a bit more posh, it was still a good experience. The bathroom had everything you needed (even a phone!) and the bed was REALLY comfortable, as well as the pillows. The room was small but then again, guess that's a New York standard. The staff was also really friendly and helpful with our queries. I also have to mention that it is in a really good location as it's "right next" to Times Square and there's a Dunkin Donuts not far either and even though it's located in central spot, you can easily have a good night sleep as you don't hear much noise at night. My experience was overall fairly good.

"Friendly staff, good location, kind of dated, teeny little room"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

I booked this hotel on Priceline, and it wasn't terrible. It wasn't fantastic, either. It was adequate. The good: staff was friendly, the room was clean, and the bath amenities were nice. The hotel is within walking distance to Times Square (where my conference was), the subway, and several reasonably priced food options. Also, the hotel lobby smells really nice. The mediocre: As is the case with most hotels, the "fitness center" was really a closet-sized room with two pieces of cardio equipment and a sad little rack of dumbbells. There was barely enough room to turn around in there. I worked out elsewhere. The bed wasn't terribly comfortable. Furniture is dated, although there is a small desk that's perfect for zipping out your laptop and answering a few emails before your day begins. The bad: Pack earplugs, because if you have a room facing the street, it is LOUD. You WILL be woken up by people outside. Also, the room was definitely not big enough for two adults (which is what Priceline indicated). The room was barely big enough for ONE adult, and I'm a very small adult. Technically, this hotel is in Hell's Kitchen, not Times Square. But it's perfectly adequate for sleeping and showering, which is really all I used it for.

"Unpleasant surprise"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed August 14, 2019 NEW
I arrived at the hotel after a long trip. My only wish was to have a shower and a few hours of sleep. When I got to my room (which was smaller than can be imagined) I went straight to the shower. There I found stains of mold and was very disgusted. After stepping out of the shower I came to find a puddle of water that had leaked out of the shower because of the apparently broken shower door. And just as an extra, trying to sleep after that experience was impossible due to noise from the street and the bright light that comes in (there are blinds but that is not enough). The staff were helpful and found me a different room, thank god!

"Friendly and nice staff, terrible air conditioning"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed August 06, 2019 NEW
My biggest complain is air conditioner blowing strong cold air stream directly to the bed. You can't switch it off due to the hot weather, and it very uncomfortable to sleep under a cold wind. You have a good chance to get a common cold. Diffusing the stream or adding the ability to direct it toward ceiling would be nice
