Everything was great, with the exception of some extra pillows and mattress that made it difficult to sleep.

Cons: Bring back coffee in the room -- if it is a matter of cost, then charge for it along with the $7 potato chips. One of the lamps in the room was broken
At one point, I was using internet in the lobby (at 2am) and was told by two different people that I would have to leave so staff could clean -- because they don't want to clean around guests. I've never been to a hotel that closes the lobby, regardless of time of day or night.

Good location but way too noisy

The hotel has a club open on the lobby level and the music was pounding until well past midnight. My room was 4 floors above it and I couldn't sleep. The room was expensive even for NY standards but I felt like I was staying in a motel for spring break. Extremely dissapointing. I would never stay there again. Staff was unapologetic as well.

Nice hotel very close to the World Trade Center

Pros: Its location
Cons: nothing
Location: The World Trade Center, you arrive before the crowds
Centrally located , great staff, and very clean. Room was a little small, but, most rooms in NYC are. Great deal on Travelocity.
