Not only was my room overpriced (in my own opinion), but they forgot to include the chilled bottle of champagne i reserved part of a special package I prepaid for. I brought it to the attention of the attendant... More

Small hotel with a real family feeling. Staff is friendly and the place is very clean. The rooms are small but very well appointed and functional. The best is your only a few blocks from the L train so easy to get into the city

My wife and I had the best time over the summer at the pool. Service, crowd and experience were excellent. It was fun to be part of the scene and a good summer event for us. DJ was on point too. Did get crowded, but such is life in NYC.
