Was required to purchase a $40 amenity package that consisted of a drawstring bag and 2 small water bottles. Not worth it at all.

Not even close to being a 4-star hotel. Restroom was rediculously tiny, carpet and paint is old, walls are beat up, smells funny, the entrance was difficult to find because there is not even a sign out front indicating the name of the hotel. 2 star max!

Parking, technically the street they are on is not for through traffic therefore it took a couple passes to recognize where to turn, park and enter. Also they have no EV charging.

I was falsely charged and I am waiting for a refund. I also found mold on the bathroom ceiling and the ceiling bathroom light didn't work. I was only there one night so it didn't bother me that much, but if I was staying longer I would have complained.

At 1 AM I heard someone say room service and it was across the hall. It woke me up bc it was loud so i looked out the peep hole and it was five cops. They took three people out in handcuffs. Turned out to be something with fraudulent credit cards!

Great location, right in Union Square, just across from the plaza which was beautiful with the lit Christmas tree. Friendly and cooperative staff.

First room had noisy neighbors next room faced street, windows singlepaned allowing street & construction noise in. There was also a roosting pigeon on heater, lots of poop, so we moved to a new, louder room but at least we avoided health issue.

There was no hotel bar (under construction) and there were parts of the elevators that were dusty and exposed due to construction.
