Very good 8.0
Just returned from staying 5 nights here with my niece. The hotel location is great and met our needs. Subway stop is right down the street, there are lots of places to eat in neighborhood, Duane Reade (Walgreens) is right across the street, Central Park and museums are a short walking distance away. When we first arrived, we weren't able to check-in right away, but they stored our luggage until our room was ready. We eventually were able to check in before 4pm. The elevators are small and on the slower side, but we took the stairs if the wait was too long (we were on the 4th floor). Room was clean, but they probably could use updated curtains and comforters. Housekeeping was inconsistent. First two days were great but last three days the only thing that looked clean to me was the bathroom and trash was removed. There was no mini refrigerator in the room. You have to ask for it, but I didn't realize this until we were almost done with our stay. I didn't check out business center since most of the time we were out. We stayed on the 4th floor. Room view was of the street and nothing special. The AC was good and so was water pressure in shower.

Really nice
Fantastic location in one of the most interesting neighborhoods of New York (upper west side, W. 79th and Amsterdam Ave.). Less than a block from subway (line 1) and bus stops, surrounded by restaurants and bars of all types. Very clean and well-managed. Just a couple cheap points, which didn't seem to fit into the overall ambience -- for example no glass drinking glasses (just plastic), non-adjustable shower head, could have used another towel bar in the bathroom. Also, be aware that they charge a $20/night "facilities fee" over and above the room rate, which gives you wi-fi and a 15% discount on breakfast in the onsite restaurant (Nice Matin). The other things they say it covers (use of the business center, concierge, etc.) are normally included in other hotels' room rates.
