Good 6.0
Great location, rude staff and terrible service
This hotel is in a great location. Just one block from Times Square. However, it is let down by rude and incompetent staff. The hotel has over 600 rooms. But not enough staff. They offer a breakfast buffet that is ridiculously busy when they hotel is busy. We were ushered into another area of the hotel for our second mornings breakfast. It was chaos. We had to queue down some back stairs. Not apologized to for this. Just herded like cattle. The restaurant we had breakfast in the first morning was great. Smaller and not as crowded. When we went back the next morning at 9am we were pushed out by a horrible staff member called Maria. No apology, just told to get out and go to the other reataurant. Our room was not cleaned at all while we were there. Even after asking reception in person to look into it. AND calling down to reception again later in the day. Luckily they brought us clean towels one day. If you like service with a smile, then don't stay at this hotel. Very disappointing.
