Location was convenient
Parking was bad and expensive, waited 35 minutes for vehicle Restaurant would not let me sit with my wife and 3 kids only because I do not eat breakfast. Stupid people make stupid rules. Rest of staff was less than polite or helpful.
The staff where extremely helpful
The only downside was the internet was poor
Bellboy Service wasn’t great. Waited over half an hour to collect my bags they had been storing for me. Clearly understaffed to cope with the number of guests staying. Breakfast - plenty of food choices however cooked foods were swimming in fat. Plates that had just been washed had residue food still on them. Was confronted by a member of staff who told me that I couldn’t take a mini muffin to my room but they have no problem with buying food from the street and consuming it in the room. No tea and coffee making facilities in the room either which I thought was unusual. Room was nice but bed was uncomfortable. Spent the night tossing and turning. Shower leaked water from the bottom of the shower door into the little hallway, outside of the bathroom. Had to use bath towels to mop up the water.
The breakfast was amazing and the staff was exceptional!!! Everyone was helpful, kind, and accommodating. We had to ask for very little before it was already being offered...so refreshing!!!! We lived all of the smiling faces
My pillow wasn’t as soft as I’d prefer and the hairdryer gave us a little “static”..hahaha
Everything is perfect. Room is super clean, the view from window is just perfect for new york, breakfast and the bar on the 1st floor are fantastically adorable. Great place. Definitely gonna come again.
