                Great hotel! The rooms were spacious, clean and everything was well thought out as regards comfort. No complaints.

                We did have to stay at another hotel the first night because of a plumbing problem at the GEM, and unfortunately the hotel they put us up at was absolutely not up to par. After a long exhausting trip, this was not appreciated, though they did upgrade our reservation.

                The concierge Anthony was fantastic with great ideas - always welcoming and sincere.

                Our room was serviced very late one afternoon - nearly 6pm - when we asked if they could wait 5 minutes until we went out, they indicated it was the last room for the day and we felt pressured to comply with their needs!! This was then surpassed by the next night when housekeeping forgot to service our room. We asked at the desk (when we were going out) for the room to be serviced and when we returned around 9pm it still had not been done. The concierge very quickly got us clean towels, but we were not happy with the situation. Other than the concierge's apologies no other apologies were given. Also unhappy to be disturbed when the "please do not disturb" sign was on the door. This was due to internet router placement in our hotel room.

                The Chelsea location is much better than the Soho location we originally booked.

                Very diffiicult to get luggage into tiny elevator and lobby. Moved us to the other location due to mixup. Staff was slow to help us and stood in front of us chatting while a long line waited.

                Great location, great staff and quite affordable for NYC.

                Smallish room but that kept the price down. Great for a couple.

                The upstairs queen room was a decent size. Nice view and amazing location. Fridge, microwave and safe were fabulous!

                I hated having my first night stay downstairs on the basement level. If my entire stay was spent down there I would have despised this hotel chain. The downstairs room was tiny, unclean, ratty towels and missing bathroom amenities. Check-in early or you will get the basement!

                It's location and good price for the location

                The hotel was expensive for the tiny size of the room. O hotel foi caro considerando o tamanho ridículo do quarto. Um casal c muitas malas terá dificuldade de organizar as malas

                Good location, close to everything, correct price for nyc, the concierge was very friendly and usefull.

                The room service was knocking each time at the door, "room service, do you need anything ?". So even if you put the sign "don't disturb" you ear the noise and it was really anoying. Please, stop it.

                Very close to Soho shopping, dining. Rooms were ok size wise, helpful staff at the desk.

                Noisy fan in the bathroom with the light on.

                Great staying in Soho and you couldn't beat the price.

                There is a lot of street noise on East Houston Street.

                friendly helpful front desk lots of clean comfy pillows set up well for people on business (hair dryer, iron ready, free wifi) and close to everything needed (like Whole Foods for breakfast and quick sushi) also very safe so our mom didn't worry about her girls being in the city

                nothing we didn't like (except we can't afford to come back often to stay)

                The staff was extremely attentive and answered our every need. We only stayed there for two nights, but they actually knew who we were and greeted us every time we entered or left. Anthony gave us great restaurant advice and was all around one of the friendliest hotel staff members I have ever encountered. We experienced an emergency with one of our group members and Jose was especially helpful and kind during the ordeal.

                When we arrived they said we had no reservation. Then they found the reservation and gave us a room which turned out to be in the basement. I have never had a basement room in a hotel. I would never return to this hotel.

                The hotel room was quite compact,based on a poor design I.e no wardrobe space bathroom brilliant.the staff were excellent especially the head concierge anthony vasquez perfectly helpful absolutely charming.

                Just poor design of the room causing little wardrobe space nothing more.

                Good location, beds and bathrooms ok

                Rooms are tiny, no space for clothes if you stay several days.Elevators were broken almost all the time
