Two thumbs up.
I was upgraded to a queen bed. When the TV remote died, an engineer came up right away with new batteries.

Totally Worth It
My daughter (10yo) and I chose the bunk beds for her first NYC adventure. I was skeptical at first, but these were some of the most comfy beds I've slept on in a hotel! The room was perfect, no unnecessary frills, just the essentials. Everything was clean, the lounge/bar areas were nice little bonuses. The location was ideal too, only a few blocks from everything in either direction. We would not hestitate to stay here again and will definitely recommend it to friends and family.
