As two ladies travelling alone, we wanted a safe, comfortable hotel in a central location and that is exactly what this hotel delivered. Decorated in art deco style, it is a traditional hotel, comfortable but not what I’d call swish.

Our room on the third floor had two queen size beds and a large bathroom with shower and bath. The voltage for the hairdryer (provided) was weak and it took forever to boil our own kettle. There are no drinks facilities in the room but you can get tea and coffee free 24/7 in the breakfast room. The beds were really comfy. Initially we couldn’t get the aircon to work but it was soon sorted following a call to reception. Wi fi was free and efficient. The room had a TV, a coolbox and a safe (free) plus an iron, ironing board and brolly. A small selection of toiletries was provided (the usual stuff, we didn’t try it). There was no sound from the street, but we were facing inwards towards a wall, so no view either.

Breakfast was muffins (lovely), pastries, yoghurt, bagels, cream cheese, oranges, apples, bananas, tea, coffee (including decaff) and orange juice.

Between five and six thirty there is free wine tasting with canapes which was a nice touch.

There is a hair salon and gym which we ignored.

The hotel has a rooftop terrace which is open in summer with a fantastic view of the Empire State. The bar wasn’t open in April but we were allowed to take drinks up from the downstairs bar. Don’t miss this opportunity.

Location wise, it couldn’t be better – a few blocks from Times Square and the Theatre District and Macy’s on your doorstep. I would recommend this hotel.
