Fabulous 8.8 From 1,077 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great hotel for the creative class!
Cool hotel with great restaurants and public areas to work/chill in. Excellent rooftop bar, Simon & The Whale restaurant is great with a great bar too. Rooms are smallish, but kept very clean and beds are very comfortable. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Exceptional 10.0
Beautiful hotel and cool atmosphere!
One of the coolest hotels I have ever stayed in! The common areas were beautiful, and the food & drinks we had at the various restaurants and bars was delicious. The games room is a really fun and nice touch. Shame the rooftop wasn´t open yet, but we loved everything else about this hotel. Great staff, amazing atmosphere, excellent location (just 1 block from the nearest subway) and the rooms were a really good size too (we had views of the Chrysler from our window!). The bed was super comfy as well.

Fair 4.0
Too small and uncomfortable!!!!!
I realize I'm in NYC, but both the room and bathroom were extremely SMALL... was not worth the price I paid per night. Very uncomfortable. The restaurants and bars inside the hotel were extremely OVERPRICED as well. Will stay at a Marriott or Hilton next time we travel to NYC.

Very Good 8.0
They chose style over comfort and function
Stayed in a room with a queen bed and a twin bunk. It was clean and functional. We liked the style, but it could use a bit more function and comfort. Clearly some quality materials were used in a lot of the furnishings. But that did not extend to the mattress. We all tossed and turned for hours every night due to the discomfort. And the bathroom, while beautiful, was apparently designed by a man. There’s not enough shelving for toiletries or places to put towels, and the lighting is terrible for makeup. There are plenty of outlets by the bed, which is great. But only one in the bathroom by the sink. And not enough by the mirror in the room where we ended up doing our makeup due to the lighting issue. Also, given the lack of places to store clothes/toiletries, a luggage rack or two would’ve helped. Overall, better for a low key short stay with few people.

Poor 2.0
Together, and Freehand beat me out of more than $600. My trip was cancelled the day before I was scheduled to check in. I called the hotel and you immediately to cancel. They pointed at you and you pointed at them. I won’t ever stay there and I will never, repeat never use you, either.
