    Room cleanliness average, hotel has already a bit tired look. Ac noisy, sheets are synthetic, In view of the price I would have expected better

    Very good

    The location and the vue are fantastic. The size of the rooms is excellent. The hotel staff is corteous and willing to help.

    Although the wi-fi is charged and said to be state of the art, it's one of the worst wi-fi internet connection I've experienced. It's absurd to charge for a such low level of service. The hotel is rather oldish and deserves a bit of maintenance. For example the faucet dripped and the air conditioning made a funny noise. The switches are individually located in every lamp and a bit of modernisation would be welcomed in this area.

    Oh so many things. We go to the city for the weekend several times a year and have stayed at different 4 star hotels. Have never stayed in a 4 star that you couldn't get a cup of coffee in am without waiting 40 minutes for restaurant. Was actually told that there was a deli around the corner. Room was OK but couldn't turn ac on 78 degrees all night. 20 minutes online waiting to check in (only 3 people ahead of us) and 1 person with head down not making eye contact with patrons. I think a cool room and somewhere to get a continental breakfast in am is not too much to ask for $400.00 a night.

    Fabulous location on central park, request rooms above 10th floor for best views of the park. Very comfortable in every way, from bed to bar to restaurant. Concierge was very helpful.

    Was told I had a park view when I checked in (I paid the extra for this) and when I got to my room it was a city view without even a partial park view. I went back downstairs to the same person and they merely said, that the park view was not available and this was as good as she could do. Never mentioned anything about being sorry for having told me for $x I could have a park view and never mentioned anything about being sorry for my hassle. Very bad impression.

    Superb

    The room was spacious, very clean, and elegantly appointed. The dining room was gorgeous with beautiful views of Central Park. Our reservation included breakfast which we were very pleased with. It was a continental buffet with plenty of choices of fruit, juice and pastries. The coffee and tea was excellent. We would definitely advise other guests to have breakfast in the dining room, not in your room (as you have a choice). The view and elegance in the dining room should not be missed. Some people have complained about the breakfast, but we think they must have had it delivered and, in that case, they would not have had the opportunity to try the wonderful pastries and to help themselves to seconds, if they wanted.

    The clerks at the reservation desk when we checked in and when we stopped to ask a question were not very friendly. All of the other staff, however, were very nice and helpful. We had a problem with our shower -- it was very difficult to turn on and then to regulate the temperature. But with a bit of effort, we were able to work it and did not have to call for help.

    Location is fantastic. Rooms are bigger than the average for NY standards. The view from my room to central park is unique.

    Breakfast prices are too high for what they offer.

    Fabulous

    We were really delighted with the convenient location of the hotel and the position overlooking Central Park. The location was ideal for getting around New York, the hoop-on/hop-off bus is opposite and a subway just a short walk away. The hotel itself was very comfortable with a very nice room and bathroom facilities.

    It would be good if tea and coffee making facilities could be included in the room.

    The service was exceptional--our every need was anticipated and met--and the location, within walking distance of everything midtown with a view of Central Park. Fabulous!

    Our room was showing its age...the toilet ran, wallpaper was peeling off the walls (small places), the furniture was coming apart, the stuffing in the cushions on the chair was ill-fitting. It needs a good renovation.

    The service was SUPERB and the atmosphere was a home away from home!

    No complimentary in-room coffee amenity.

    My Wife & I had an opportunity to get away for a short vacation. We enjoyed the hotel since we were there a number of times. Always enjoyable during the Christmas Season.

    Utter chaos during regisration. Buffet breakfast was like the "Great Train Robbery." The buffet table included stale bagels, variousl cream cheeses, mixed fruit. My wife & I each had a stale bagel and small portion of fruit. $50.
