                                The Flowers and Lobby were attractive

                                Bed was not comfortable, front desk at check in had an unfriendly attitude

                                The underbar was not very welcoming and we thought we would stay an extra night due to the snow on the 26th Dec, the room rate went form 372 to over 700 not impressed

                                Hotel/rooms were very clean. It was easy to get around the city from this location. The restaurant breakfast was good and reasonably priced.

                                Would be nice to have a longer breakfast time in the restaurant for guest that get up late.

                                Very comfortable bed in a beautifully decorated room, very pleasant and helpful staff. Also liked the Acura car service.

                                A coffee machine in the room would have been appreciated.

                                Necessity to have close proximity to friends apartment, which it served. Size of (mediocre) Junior Suite.

                                Dark public/reception areas, landings and lifts. Lack of hotwater on 2 occassions. 'Tired' decor/furnishings in some areas. Noisy rooms as windows were very poorly glazed - had to use a/c to mask overnight noise levels / get some sleep. Requested coffee / tea maker for early morning 'wake up' beverage rather than call room service each time or have to dress to collect 'self serve' from lobby. Brought to room with 3 coffee pods, milk and sugar, plastic straw stirrers but not replenished and only paper cups offered, no china mug or cup/spoons!! 1 small bottle of complimentary water offered (per 3 day stay) Other bottled water in room @ $9/small bottle!!!

                                The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The location is ideal for any New York City destination due to it's proximity to multiple subway lines at Union Square. The neighborhood has numerous stores so that you can pick up any item you may need without spending a fortune. Finally, the hotel has a modern and hip vibe and a wonderful lounge for hanging out with friends or having a drink before an evening out.

                                Its location was excellent- you were bang in the middle of the city. Its also a really cool hotel!

                                The staff- some of them were lovely however you could get the odd dragon working! When we were leaving we had a lot of baggage and despite their being 4 people behind the desk standing their doing nothing no one offered to help with our bags- that service leve should be part of the 5 star package!

                                Stayed at the w Times Square for my honeymoon and the staff was exceptional. All in all it was pricey (room & bkfst) but worth it for my honeymoon cause it was a great experience!

                                6.2

                                The bed was very comfortable, the room spacious and clean and the response to requests was fast and efficient.

                                My room was not ready on arrival although I arrived at the specified check- in time. The rooms were dull and uninteresting with little natural light, and traffic noise was audible even from the 17th floor. The bathroom toiletries were underwhelming for a hotel of this price range. (No shower cap, no cotton wool, etc.) There was nowhere to sit in reception/lobby, and the one small bar adjacent to the lobby was always full. (There is a basement bar but it's currently under refurbishment). Although there appeared to be doormen, they did not open the door for us. We also had to flag our own taxis. An invalid 'honour bar' charge was added to several of our bills and had to be rectified. Bottled water in the room was charged at $9 (cost $1.50 in the shop next door). Overall, quite disappointing from a 'design' point of view and not great value either.
