This was by far my worst experience with a listing on Hotels.com. Usually the listing clearly depicts the place and based on this I was expecting for plus $200 a night to have a decent place, with some views, a nice sized room and lobby. Instead, the lobby was no frills and small, the room was tiny, no views and the one window looked at a brick wall and a small courtyard (pass thru) so there was no privacy if I opened the curtains. The room had a decent bed, and the shower worked. Nothing to write home about, it was maybe 100 square feet, and the entire experience felt like a youth hostel. That's what it should be and not sure why it's on Hotels.com, where this price range could get you a really nice room in the upper east or west side. The photos in the ads are NOT what you get, I did not have a desk as shown, or any view, nothing. As a native new yorker I am upset I wasted two nights in this small uninspired place.
