    Very good

    The location and the room

    The bell desk was rude to my girlfriend. After the bell desk took my bags from my rental I was to drop the rental back. The bell desk didnt advise me to see the front desk before I left. Consequently, my girlfriend could not check in until I returned over an hour later. I also found the bell desk pushy and I became quite annoyed when they insisted on calling me a cab when I could have hailed one from the front.

    Superb

    IT is a new building and has amazing views if you have a room on the upper floors. I also like the lap pool. The location is fine, not in the center of Union Square but close enough.

    Valet parking is really expensive.

    Good location, nice service and very good gym -

    Hotel service people made a mistake on the bills when we did check out - 1 person told us we have paid by 3rd party when we did check in, means no need to make payment. When we check out, the other people print the total of 3 days bills asked us to make payment again, it's really confused.

    The hotel was very nice

    They did not tell us how much the parking cost until we left and they were extremely unorganized in the valet, it took way to long to get our car

    Fabulous

    The room was new, clean, and well-appointed.....especially the bathroom. The floor to ceiling windows were a nice touch....allowing plenty of light into the room and affording a good view of the city. Flat screen tv was also of good quality. One of the reasons I chose this hotel was the spa services available in the same building. The concierge was very friendly and helpful.

    The room was a bit on the small side....although the large floor-to-ceiling window helped to make the space seem bigger. Some of the staff (e.g. restaurant hostess/bellhops) were not very helpful and seemed ill-informed about hotel policy (e.g. regarding parking validation). They were dismissive of one's questions. The spa was nice but the spa reception area was too bare-boned and simplistic. Would've expected a more upscale design.
