Fodor's Review

The survivor of two major earthquakes, some headline-grabbing scandals, and even an attempted presidential assassination, this grande dame that dates to 1904 remains ever above the fray—richly appointed, serenely elegant, and superbly located. The hotel is comprised of the landmark building (Empire-style furnishings, Victorian moldings) and a modern 32-story tower (Asian-inspired lacquered furniture, glass elevators); guests are divided when it comes to the virtues of

the modern addition versus the historic building. Adding to the air of upscale sophistication is the cool chic of Michael Mina's classy Bourbon Steak restaurant and a new cocktail lounge, Clock Bar, as well as the venerable Oak Room Restaurant, Chateau Montelena tasting room, and Caruso's café and lounge.

Heart of the City but not worth the price

Its in the middle of all the action of Union Square but the decor is dated. If staying in the older building, it will be VERY NOISY. I had to go out and buy earplugs. The elevators in the older building took FOREVER to arrive so we ended up walking all around looking for the stairs. The stairs are really hard to find from the lobby level.
