Renovated, clean, spacious room with amazing view!

It was our first time in New York and staying at the ONE UN was a perfect introduction to the city. I had been reading reviews on many other hotel accommodations in New York and, for us, having a clean and spacious room was a top priority. This hotel not only met our expectations, but exceeded them as well. When we landed at JFK, we called the hotel to request for directions via Subway. The directions we were provided were absolutely clear and accurate. We followed the directions with no confusion and arrived to the hotel with ease. Mind you, it was a long commute, but we weren’t in any hurry. When we finally arrived to the hotel it was well before check-in time and didn’t expect our room to be ready. However the gentleman that checked us in was welcoming, friendly and checked us in to our room right away. We originally had booked a Queen Room with a river view online, but upgraded to a King Room with a city view for an additional $30 per night. Definitely worth it: Room was on the top 40th floor / spacious, clean, renovated room with a king bed / spacious, clean, beautiful bathrooms / amazing city view with the Chrysler building in full view / just overall a well-appointed beautiful room. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. The location is a bit of a walk to and from the main attractions, but definitely walk-able. We actually really enjoyed being away from all the hustle & bustle and traffic noise. It’s certainly a safe neighborhood. Overall, we were extremely satisfied.
