Wonderful Stay!

The staff members of this hotel were so professional, helpful, and kind. The property itself is in a great location with close proximity to subway stations and bus stops. It made it very easy to travel within Manhattan, and, if I was traveling outside of Manhattan, that would have been easy to do too. The hotel rooms are modern and kept clean. I really enjoyed my stay!

Strange entrance, spacious rooms

The entrance to the hotel is strange - it is sort of in the basement. If you have bags you can use the elevators on the side of staircase which isn't as obvious in the beginning.
Reception staff are accommodating and friendly. A snack bar is located next to reception area where you can find light bites.
Rooms were spacious and clean.
Location is nice - different feel for midtown or other parts of Manhattan given location is Harlem.
Conveniently located if you want to visit Columbia Uni. Also, a few spots close by including a cinema.

Good location

Good stay but they need to get some things fixed. There is no working ventilation in the room. Make a smell and it is with you for a couple of hours (use the toilet in the lobby). After a shower it is very humid and my wife struggled with putting on her make-up. The toilet and shower room door closes with a barn door type slide. It does not offer any privacy and opening and closing it sounds like a subway car going by (if your partner was asleep they won't be any more but wait! There's more!...) The lights in the bathroom/hallway are bright enough to light up Yankee stadium. When you flick them on in the middle of the night to find your to bathroom you instantly go from pitch black to blinded. It is ridiculously bright and finally when you flush the toilet it sounds there is a guy in the tank with a hammer "BANG!" then back to opening the sliding door.

It is like they have never designed a hotel before. Not one thoughtful design idea.

The staff are great, very helpful and very nice.
