Editorial review:

This absolutely elegant boutique hotel in Union Square has a gorgeous and impressive lobby, great dining, and lively nightlife at the amazing bar Redwood Room. It can be too noisy for those who aren't interested in partying all night, though. Critics felt that the rooms were too small, as well.

                            It has the most fantastic atmosphere! Love the the big chair, I felt like a little kid

                            All in all pretty good, the lobby looked good, the bar was good fun and it was a great location

                            Slightly over priced - very small rooms.

                            Good: Rooms are a good size. Ceilings are tall. Water pressure and temperature excellent. Decor good.

                            Bad: Smoking leaked in from other rooms or floors. Lobby lounge area too dark. Bar closed during the day!

                            Good location, bar was nice.

                            Bathroom was very small, old and not so clean. Noisy from outside hall way.

                            location

                            Did not honor my request to be on higher floor. Was given a room on the 3rd floor and could hear the noise from the street.

                            front hallway was a little dim. bathroom light switch on opposite side of bathroom door was poor design.

                            Trendy Hotel with a great lounge and night life. Good for vacation (not for business maybe)

                            Needs a good Spa and Restaurant

                            The location

                            2 glasses of champagne was $40 what a rip off!

                            The location of the hotel was amazing. YOu were walking distance to great shopping and several of the sites. In addition, the entire staff was extremely helpful with directions and advise on places to see. We loved it!

                            Loved the eclectic furniture. Beds super comfy and beautiful crisp bed linen. Good bar. Nice doormen and appreciated the use of the hotel cars.

                            Only the dull lighting in the public areas.

                            the atmosphere/style of hotel; staff (particularly doormen); location; price was reasonable

                            charged 15 a day for internet - this is unusual (build into price if you have to); being charged for local calls

                            We over paid for a room that offered a city view when in reality it was a view of a concrete wall. Also for a hotel that is considered luxurious, the room was cheaply done and very understated. I have stayed at two other Morgans Group Hotels before and had an amazing experience. This hotel under exceeded its reputation, especially with our room stay.
