The bathroom was filthy - full of hair and bugs. Impossible to shower as there was no hot water or pressure. No water bottles or shower caps provided. Staff is useless and cannot care less. Hotel is falling into pieces and it was a terrible experience.
Rooms were clean and spacious hoever the air-con was quite noisy. The location of the hotel was very convenient and right in the Time Square area. A lot of good restaurants and dining choices nearby. We spent 5 days in NYC and were very satisfied with the hotel.
