I booked this hotel because of its location (super convenient to trains and Times Square), its clean and modern interiors, and its price compaired to other rooms in the area. But after the extra hotel fees (an "Urban" fee just because there are some tables and power outlets in the lobby, really?) and the taxes, I felt that the cost of my stay wasn't worth it. I had a balcony room with an exterior door that wouldn't close all the way, a rattling air conditioner, no in-room hair dryer, missing in-room coffee, the wait for the elevators was ridiculous every time, the gym had about 3 pieces of equipment in it, and the staff at check-in and check-out were far from friendly. The hotel is way better than some others in NYC, but to pay that much and not have things be great just wasn't worth it, in my opinion.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Great location for where I needed to be. Staff was attentive. My room was not ready, I said I would wait and the concierge instead found me an upgraded room that was ready at no extra charge!

By the Numbers

Cons: Get a concierge that is truly honest and helpful.
Location: Right in the heart of the Broadway District and less than 3 blocks from Times Square and close the One Rockefeller Center
Location for Broadway & Times Square - 5 Stars Front Desk Staff (initial contact) - 2 Stars Subsequent Front Desk Interaction - 4 Stars Concierge - 1 to -1 Stars Room - Later Elevators - 2 Stars Breakfast - a Joke no Stars We arrived at the hotel & were greeted by a pleasant individual at the front desk who gave us our first key to a room that was already occupied by someone else ( our surprise upon opening the door), secondarily gave us a key to a "Suite Room" that had 2 bunk beds and a queen bed, we had reserved a King Master Room, then gave us a key to a temporary room for the night to a room on a higher floor, NOT A KING BED. Then the next day they moved us to a King Bed. In both rooms we stayed in there had never been any maintenance performed, the filter for the AC was so clogged that no air was coming thru, I cleaned it myself. Half of the plugs did work. We used the concierge to assist in going back to the airport and she sold us on a van service which was more costly and time consuming than had we used a taxi. We had also asked her about going to various locations, some more than a mile away and her response was to either walk or use the subway, which she gave no help in using. No subways in our town and we had never used one. Also be aware that this hotel is located right near a fire station and there are sirens all thru the night.

Great location to Broadway!

Pros: The lobby was very cool, and the whole hotel had a contemporary feel due to recent renovations with new surfaces.
Cons: Nothing much they can do about either. Elevators are slow, suggest getting a lower floor. Bathroom tiny, have to close door to stand in front of sink
Location: If you like Sushi, the best place is connected to the hotel...An'Anan (something like that). High quality! Live scallops!
Selected this hotel since it was just across the street from the Walter Kerr theater where we were seeing Amelie. But it's just one block to Times was a great location. The price was very reasonable for the location.
