    Excellent hotel, great staff, good breakfast and extremelly fast wifi! Ask for a top floor and a room with a view! Close to the Subway, but the elevator is a mess, during Rush hours!

    The only problem with this hotel is the breakfast selection. I'd like to see a better variety. Other than that, great service, and great views from my hotel room! I will definitely stay here again.

    Great location, nice view on upper levels, within walking distance of Times Square/Broadway, clean and modern, kitchenettes, no room service, cocktail hours in lobby, tv has dvd player/HDMI/USB.

    Staff is very friendly and helpful. Yes the elevators can be seriously slow. But sometimes they're pretty quick. I like being a few blocks away from Times Square. This is a nicely, quieter area.

    A secret spg gem, I'm reluctant to endorse it only because I don't want it selling out all the time. Clean, spare, handsome rooms with kitchenettes! Free breakfast! Free happy hour Mon-Thurs!

    Elevators get jammed in the mornings with guests going down and back up after picking up their free breakfasts in the Green Room on lobby level. Allow more time than you otherwise would 7:00-9:00am.

    Great hotel. Artisan sandwiches every morning. Stable Internet connection in the room and the elevators seem to be working fine. Get floors 8 and below if you dont want to wait.

    There's a really good Italian restaurant half a block to the west of the hotel. Called Mercato's Trattoria. The spinach ricotta ravioli was heavenly.

    Comfy bed! Glad there was a fridge and a microwave. Beautiful view, but I was woken up in the morning by taxis honking and ambulance sirens from Time Square craze. Welcome to New York!

    Very Good beds, Elevators can be slow in the morning. When checking out take notice of traffic. When eating out go right instead of left. Restaurants in Hells Kitchen are cheaper and better!!

    The elevators are slow when the hotel is busy. It's quicker to walk down from the 30th floor than take the elevator. And if you're on the 5th floor or below, do everyone a favor and walk up!

    Lift number 1 takes you up to floor 'R' which is a rooftop terrace. It's not the best, as you are surrounded by air conditioning plants, but it'll do!

    Small, noisy rooms. Wifi doesn't work most of the time, elevators are a disaster (waiting times exceed 15 minutes). Breakfast area, food and behaviour of guests is worse then a high school cafeteria.
