For a place rated as 4 star does not show it. Carpet held down with tape. Bathroom had wallpaper that was placed over wall to cover remodeling needs as it looked to be either walls crumbling or poor sheetrock. Build uo of dirt on edges on baseboards. Stayed in 2 star hotels that were better. If this place was a 2 star rated i would then have rated it fair.
The location and the staff
the beds comfortness and sheets(noisy)
I had an interview at a place nearby and wish the staff would have let me keep my stuff behind the desk so I didn’t have to bring it to the interview.
The house keeping was stellar, very respectful of privacy and attentive to our needs, and very nice!! So give those wonderful folks a shout out and a raise! We also appreciated being on the 14th floor as this cut down on the noise from the street. The high quality cot on wheels was better than expected. Equally, the other guests were extremely pleasant, in the elevator and such, which reflects the fact that they were also quite satisfied and happy staying at the Watson. Also, the upgraded gift shop is convenient and modestly priced! One more thing...The ground floor bar is a perfect place to relax while just getting there or waiting for your Uber or Cab to the airport. OH, and YES! the concierges are ALSO top notch, pleasant and genuinely helpful! Can't say enough good things about them! The Watson is my "GO TO" Hotel in NYC! The location is the BEST!!! And the price is RIGHT!!!
I have now been at the Watson many times. The only issue I really have is that I would much prefer a room with a great view! Once when we stayed there, we received that! In fact, it was a fantastic view! Apparently, it was a downtown view! Ever since then I have asked for a room with a view, but do not receive it. Just once again, I'd appreciate a room with a lovely DOWNTOWN view!
