  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This was a last minute decision for me to stay when attending the opera. What a great decision it was! So easy to valet park (though not cheap, couldn't beat the ease of it), so convenient to restaurants prior to the show and Lincoln Center literally across the street. Room and hotel was clean, nice (room was smaller, European type, typical for a big city). Mostly, EVERYONE was so nice! From the parking attendants to the door people, to the front desk. It was such a pleasure. The only amenity I feel was missing in the room (and this could be an easy fix...) a coffee maker!

Telephone in room didn’t work. Tried to reach the bell desk several times & the phone didn’t work. I even tried with my own phone & no one answered. Remote in rom didn’t work either. Otherwise, staff was attentive.
