Fodor's Review

Combining the comforts of a dependable large hotel with whimsical elements, this hotel keeps visitors coming back with its iconic patty-palace Burger Joint, which serves one of the city's best no-frills burgers from behind a velvet curtain. If you've got more scratch, there's always the famous $1,000 omelet at Norma's (the restaurant also serves slightly more cost-effective items). Rooms are modern functionalist, with low platform beds and televisions hidden in recessed, cherry-paneled cabinets. It's worth asking for a Central Park view, though city views are also impressive. The 20,000-square-foot gym is one of the largest in the city and includes a blow-dry bar, mani-pedi boutique, and spa.

Horrible experience

Not only I went through a horrible stay due to all sorts of issues: technical (uncontrollable A/C), very poor comfort, poor room conditions (noise, dirt, etc.) but my jewelry (worth around 15k) was also stolen the day I checked out. I can’t tell what exactly happened but it was in my luggage when I left my room to go check out and get my car, and then it was gone after the staff/valet brought my luggage down to the lobby. When I got home and

realized it was mussing from my luggage I was so upset. The hotel denied all of this – of course. The hotel management and security does not respect guests’ privacy and property. I’m pretty sure they back-up their staff to attempt to protect their reputation. The hotel’s “investigation” was very quick and questionable. I travel a lot and all over the world and I can tell you, that this hotel is absolutely the worse one I’ve ever stayed at. The fact that it needs lots of renovation work is one thing and certainly not the worse one – the major problem is the staff on the ground. I’ve reached out to corporate leadership (all the way to the CEO’s office) and management (hotel and group) and they’ve done absolutely nothing nothing nothing to address and fix the issues I’ve reported. Their response: sorry for what happened but here’s 7,000 points and that should do it! Unbelievable considering that each night cost me about $400 (worth about 12,000 points) and I stayed 4 nights. Really horrible experience.
