Not sure how this is a 4-star hotel.
Though after booking we were warned that the hotel RESTAURANT was undergoing renovations, they didn't mention that there are no vending machines or water on sight, that the complimentary tea and coffee was either out of order or unavailable, that the bathroom was actually partially torn up, the shower was fairly disgusting, and the hot water didn't work in the morning. Small rooms. Suggestion was to go to the Walgreens around the corner for beverages or food. WIth SO MANY HOTELS all over the city, I would strongly suggest going to another one. The Carlton didn't offer the old NYC charm you would hope. Not sure how this has a 4-star designation...I've stayed at Holiday Inns, Comfort Inns, Ramadas, and more and had much better amenities and larger rooms. Paid a little extra for a reason...and was disappointed.
