We were promised a room with a view, there was no view. We were told we’d have access to the rooftop and that changed last minute when a private gig got booked. Our room didn’t look anything like the picture. Disappointed.

Hello Katherine and thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry that you were unhappy with the view from your room. I'm not sure which room you were in, but we sell rooms by bed type and the view in relation to the buildings that surround us. Many views in NYC can be somewhat limited, but our Great View rooms provide unobstructed views of the city. It is very rare for us to close the Roof to guests of the hotel, and only do so when we know that all the other food and beverage outlets within the hotel are open and able to accommodate our guests. We hope you will give us another chance soon. Warm Regards,

Property is very modern and impressive. Definitely caters to relaxing within sitting areas to work, read and just relax. Very nice property. Rooms are designed for 2 people. If you want a third person, rooms come with a typical uncomfortable pull out couch and they charge a premium for that third person. We experienced a very loud A/C unit. Called to have report it and the maintenance person couldn't repair it and asked if we were comfortable moving to another room. We agreed. They moved us to a room for 2 people, even though we had paid for the 3rd person. That meant we needed to move again to a third room that included a pull out couch. They were too busy to help with moving luggage to last room. Overall great hotel and would return. If we go with more than 2 people, I would get a second room or stay at a different hotel. Little disappointed they didn't help with moving luggage or make any changes to accommodations due to their maintenance issue.

Thank you for your feedback. I am delighted that you enjoyed the overall look and feel of the hotel. I am very sorry that you experienced a problem with the A/C unit in your room and that we were unable to repair it without having to move you to another room. I am disappointed that we were not able to offer assistance to facilitate that move. I will look into the circumstances and get back with you. Please contact me directly with the dates of your stay and your name or room number and I will find out exactly what happened. Again, you have my sincere apologies and my thanks for bringing the matter to my attention
