Fabulous 8.6 From 1,377 reviews

Good 6.0
Got a terrible room first, there was a brick wall right outside the window. Talked to staff but they said all rooms in that category would be the same. I asked for another room and they made me pay for the upgrade. The new room was nicer although the bathroom was tiny.

Good atmosphere, cool music at the reception, amazing food on the ground floor restaurant - get the duck!! The room was tidy, elegant, small with an awful view, it didn't bother us.

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.

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.

Poor 2.0
HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE
Horrible: arrived during Covid. When we made the reservation through hotels.com we were not informed that NO HOUSEKEEPING SERVICE would be available though out the stay. Upon checking in, they told us at the front desk that it was a mandatory rule under NY LAW. After double checking and realizing that it was not the law (it states that hotel personnel are not allowed inside rooms unless requested by guest) and that other hotels did have the service, we asked to cancel the reservation and obtain a full refund. The hotel denied, said it was the responsibility of hotels.com, who did not provide an answer either. Would never stay in a freehand hotel.
