Not without glitches this time
This is a second time I stayed in this hotel. The hotel is a tourist hotel with an excellent location, and the traffic on W 48th street is not so bad, so the hotel is relatively quiet for midtown New York. This time, however, my first room was a bit problematic: air conditioner leaked water on the floor, and the internet was not working. I complained the very first morning, and they told me that somebody would look at it. The floor was cleaned in the evening, WLAN still not working, and again water on the floor the next morning. After the second complaint they then gave me a new room which was quite OK (although I had to take my luggage myself downstairs, never happened when I have needed to change rooms in big-name hotels). (They had mentioned the possibility of a new room already after the first complaint, but then I had to rush to work in the morning.) Rooms can have technical problems, that is a part of travelling and the staff can't always detect them (housekeeping should have noticed that AC water leak), but I complain about the attitude: no apologies, and when I complained about the resort fee for non-working internet and room clearly not in proper condition, the attitude of the receptionist was that it was somehow my fault. (And the resort fee was not included in the "total" price advertised in Otherwise staff was friendly, but they obviously can't handle problem situations.

Quality hotel with helpful staff and comfortable beds. Rooms were clean and tidy. Also nice with the amenities-internet availability in the hotel lobby and ice tea as well with the hot, humid weather-nice touch.

Not impressed
The hotel was decent. The shower and the room was very small. And we had too wait 45 for the front desk. Not sure I’ll stay here again.

Fair 4.0
I’m really disappointed to write this I’ve stayed at this hotel once before and had the best service and such a clean room, sadly this wasn’t the case this time , I arrived an got my room key only to get to my room to see dead flowers hanging from the lamp as well as crumbs on the floor , I called the front desk for a new room , I revived a new room only to find that room was dirty as well, so I called again an they gave me a new room I ended up switching into 5 Diffrent rooms until they gave me a clean room, thinking that this was all I had to deal with I then went to take a shower only to find I had no hot water I really hate leaving bad reviews but I was very upset about this cold shower then having to wait bf or service to turn on my heat

Fair 4.0
Not a good stay
First room I was put in was not made up. Was reassigned rooms. Second room I was put in looked like it was missing furniture & the shower flooded & wouldn't drain. I was assigned a third room which was better but the sheets smelled like dirty feet & there was a place in the wall that looked like it had been punched in at some point. In the morning the fire alarm went off & woke me up because apparently a pipe had burst in the building, so I vacated the building & waited it out in the freezing rain. I won't be staying at this property again.

Complete waste of money and mental health
Staff is incredibly rude, not a single thought of anyone trying to help their customers that requires anything more than saying no... place looks absolutely nothing like the pictures it is such a rundown old building someone basically attempted to patch it together with cheesy wallpaper, our room was literally next to a dumpster of a restaurant where all day and all night it smells and smells and noises where of course the extremely rude staff also refused to do anything about... the elevator.... oh my god... scary, numbers don’t work, the noises that come out of it is just sad.. don’t even bother with this place, they paid someone real good money to make good pictures but in reality it’s a major dump
