Great location

The location of the hotel is great - easy to get to from Columbus Circle subway stop, and easy access for a stroll in Central Park. The room was nice with a good view of Lincoln Center, but the bathroom was tiny. It's disappointing that they no longer offer a coffeemaker in the room, but there is a Starbucks around the corner and they do offer coffee in their rooftop lounge from 7-10.

I wouldn’t even think about returning here if they gave me the room for free. The room was disgusting.
