    Nothing like ending the night with an absinthe from The Clock Bar. Professionals only please... And you'll still probably want to head up to your room before you finish it ...

    The front entry is so glamorous. Marble with such a detailed ceiling... I read the history of this hotel and it is pretty great. Check out its Wilkipedia page.

    So, so crowded. Location is "great" if you want to be in the middle of Union Sq. with thousands of other tourists.

    Centrally located on union square but the rooms are lacking a bit. Service was good, gym is nice and very clean though. Overnight parking is a bit absurd at $58/night for guests.

    I never stayed here but I've gone to a lot of events here like fashion shows at the very top penthouse or just hung out at the Clock Bar. This hotel however has a lot of history.

    This hotel has mixed reviews online but I've had a great experience so far. Stay in a high floor in the tower wing facing Union Square; rooms are newer and have great views.

    Centre of the city - Union Sq. It's a heritage hotel. Free Wifi in the lobby. Lots of shopping stores around the hotel.

    The room itself is spacious and clean with all of the features you expect from a hotel of this standard. Love the location, in walking distance from many fine restaurants and other attractions.

    The glass elevator ride is something special. Head down the hallway opposite reception and ride any car to the 32nd floor.

  • Michael S.

    It's loud. The 3am trash collection sounds like godzilla outside the tower. Also bring plenty of long cord chargers because the outlets in this wing couldn't be laid-out any worse

    Michael Saitow · November 19, 2013

    Charming hotel with exceptional customer service. From the front desk, concierge, maid service to the door men...all ready and willing to serve and please their guests. Loved my week long stay.

  • Dan B.

    The elevators suck now. You have to key in your floor, 2-3 times, before an elevator will pick you up. WTF?!

    The many historical displays In the lobby as well as menus books and other items from the turn-of-the-century are truly a great way to spend About half an hour.

  • Karan W.

    Beautiful hotel and comfortable accommodation. Immediate proximity to Union Square and the buzz of the city. Beware - internet connection is appalling and not suited to the business traveller.

    Karan White · May 27, 2013
  • Leif J.

    If you plan on using the hotel Internet here, bring an ethernet cable. The regular $14.95 wireless service is super weak.
