    The interior hasn't been updated since built 15-years ago but still in immaculate condition. The guest rooms are contemporary and filled with cheeky references. Even men's room is superbly designed.

    Very hip but, in doing so, appears rather cheap. Room is not functional. Terrible wifi. On the upside, the rooftop bar is amazing (but it's always closed for private events!)

    Nice designer/boutique hotel with valet parking service. Close to Grand Central market and The Broad museum. Ridiculous that hotel guests need to pass 'face control' for their rooftop bar though!
