4/10 Fair

The room was old and extremely outdated. It was not well cleaned and the rug felt sticky. Would not suggest staying.

Not worth the money
There was only one set of towels and rag in my room. The sheets had hair on them. Shower curtain had a stain. No fridge or microwave in the room. The rooftop pool closes at 7pm and can only fit about 7 people and that’s just standing in the water with no room to swim. Rooms need to be updated. I don’t know why this hotel is 4 stars but it needs to be 2.5 also didn’t serve buffet breakfast or have ice machines on the floor. it’s a nice looking hotel from The lobby and foyer and for over $300 per night overall I’m happier at a Marriott spending $175 a night.

Great location, old decor
The hotel is in a great location and the rooms are generally clean. The decor though is very dated and the overall presentation of the hotel is dark and in need of upgrading.

Average with outdated rooms
Lobby is nice and rooftop bar was excellent; however, the rooms were in rather poor condition and were beat up and outdated. Rust, chipping paint and trim, a TV that looked like it was from the early 2000s, stains on the sheets at check in, no ventilation in the bathroom, the list goes on. The guaranteed check in time was 3pm and one of our rooms wasn’t ready until 4:30pm which was disappointing. The staff were awesome and everyone we encountered was very kind and attentive. The price for what we got was good - the location is in a good area of Manhattan with a fair amount to do nearby, including quick access to Central Park and, of course, Lincoln Center. Target, Starbucks, and Duane Reade were all within a 5 minute walk or less of the hotel which was very convenient. There were not a ton of great food choices right nearby the hotel but the Smith was excellent! Overall, I would not stay here again when there are so many other options for lodging in the city. It was fair but the condition of the rooms was very difficult to look past. In fact, I willed myself to not look too closely at anything in case I saw something I couldn’t unsee. If the rooms get remodeled, this would be back on the list as a contender!
