Had a tough time checking in but hotel did their best. Killer location but very tired. Needs a facelift.

Such a great hotel - location is amazing on the UWS right across from Lincoln Center. Will definitely be staying here again!

Old rooms, uncomfortable beds, and very expensive food and drinks. The staff at the front desk, particularly Luis, was wonderful. Other than that - there isn’t much to redeem the hotel, unfortunately.
