Beautiful hotel, not enough hot water & broken AC
It’s a beautiful hotel with a view overlooking the Museum of Natural History. Unfortunately the air conditioner pumped out hot air instead of cold air, even when the in-room thermostat was set to cool; and the shower sometimes didn’t have enough hot water.

Location, location, location. I have stayed in many different parts of Manhattan. I loved this spot because it is right next to Central Park and the B & C Subway lines. The staff were friendly. The hotel is old-fashioned. The fan in my bathroom was very loud.
