Very good size by NYC standards and great city views of the Hudson, the park and city buildings, fresh, clean, new. Good shower. How is the exec. lounge? Neither NYC property, the Barclay or Times Square has a club lounge. What was your welcome gift? Chocolate, small fruit platter and water. What was good and what was bad? Good Friendly and helpful staff, doorman impressed me as being friendly and genuine, location, good upgrade, use of old style BOGO on the last possible weekend it could be used. Overall very happy with the property and the service. Would be good to see a club lounge, they already have the lounge. Free internet and free movie. Bad nothing really. Value for $ or Priority Club Points? The BOGO and upgrade made this stay very reasonable, Yes. Would you return? Yes, absolutely.
