I would have rated the experience higher, but no hot water is not up to standard. The receptionist when I checked in was sorta cold and mechanical. And I received mixed instructions on phone and the maid service on location of ice, on which floors.

I had a comfortable stay at this hotel. I liked that it's close to restaurants both small/family-owned and those in Union Square. Staff members were friendly from desk to housekeeping - special kudos to Benjie, who gave me recommendations where to have lunch!

We had great costumer service from the time we booked the hotel until we checked out. The valet was attentive and quick. The only downside was that...

Great, beautiful, majestic hotel with a "crew" that supported it just as well. Lobby is breathtaking and I would have loved to spend more time there just enjoying a good book. Room was very, very comfortable and it seemed like a great place to hold business meetings.

Hotel is 2 blocks from Union Square. The entire staff was welcoming and gave the impression that they wanted to make your stay comforting. Would definitely recommend to others and will come back. Appreciated the loading zone in front of hotel.
