I liked a lot of things but this has ruined it
I am not happy as I only used my visa card to hold the booking and stated I wanted to use cash to pay for it. I even contacted the hotel and specifically stated do not take the payment from my card. I have now been charged more that the amount due to the visa payment therefore I will not be using this hotel again and also boycotting booking.com in relation to this. I will be putting my experience on social media to my 1.2m followers
Great location to all the sightseeing attractions in NYC.
Staff sometimes just rude
The room was too hotttt
Check in staff seemed like they didn’t want to be there. I was happy not to interact with them again during my stay. Cleaning staff were very nice. Overall an OK hotel, definitely the selling point is the location.
