Great spacious hotel room. Very comfortable. WIFI that actually works. Shower for short people which is a bit annoying but oddly common in New York. I don’t rate The National restaurant but that’s not exactly part of the hotel (Food quality not great. Bar excellent)....More

Fantastic hotel in midtown Manhattan just down the street from grand central station. Friendly staff and lovely accommodations. The brunch in The National restaurant was amazing. Will return again someday

Overall room was adequate and bed was very comfortable. Generally the costs of amenities in the room were ridiculously priced. I also found the breakfast in the National to be very delicious but extremely over priced.More
