Rude receptionist – Room:
The room was about 5 x 5 meters, which I consider the minimum. The bathroom was 3 x 1.5 meters, which I found too small. The room had one window only and it was situated in a corner of the room. This made the room dark and I find dark rooms unpleasant. I always had to have a lamp on.
The gym had a number of cardio machines. I had hoped for weight-lifting material but those weren't there.
There's wireless Internet in the hotel, but that only worked good enough in the lobby. In the room I would sometimes have normal Internet connection, then it would disappear (while I didn't change a thing), and after a while the connection would be back. That way you can't really work on the Internet.
When I checked in the receptionist was unfriendly. Even though I had paid the total bill for my entire stay of 6 nights in cash at arrival, the receptionist still wouldn't accept an international driver's license as an ID, although it met all the requirements he mentioned. While at reception (!) he actually made me go through my luggage to find my passport, even though I had told him several times that I didn't know where I had put it.
Although I travel a lot, this had never ever been an issue before (not even in the La Quintain in Los Angeles). He even had the guts to say that he wasn't obliged to let me into the hotel if I didn't show a passport.
When I had half of my suitcase unpacked (in order to search for my passport), he complained about the contents of my suitcase being displayed in public, while it was him in the first place who had demanded me to do so. To be frank, I think that this man should find another job.
The personnell that cleaned my room were clearly different. They were nice and helpful. My compliments to them.
great locaton, great price – Rooms look like internet photo. Front desk staff not friendly but efficient. Prompt service. Toilet would not flush, came quickly to fix, still had to flush twice to get to flush. Iron didnt work quickly brought us another one. Comfortable queensize bed. Small room compared to other higher price hotels. We had lots of luggage doorman didnt seem interested in helping even though was standing there but did assist once we asked. Great location blocks from empire state building and other major attractions. Really enjoyed our stay . Would stay there again.
