    Noisy rooms, but contrary to what others say, WiFi was OK. Excellent location, just off Union Square. Valet parking at $58.

    Beautiful lobby but that is it! The rooms are too small, not enough outlets, a window unit air conditioner. Definitely not as nice as the website shows. I would Not recommend this hotel.

    I like this hotel. Noisy outside overnight though. It's not at all "plastic" like many other joints - it's got real character.

    Warning: They charge 15 dollar + tax per night as "admin fee" for the free Internet - but if you argue at check-out they may waive the fee. Bad customer care!
