A trendy, new hotel with very helpful staff. Great room with nice amenities (HDTV, well-stocked mini bar, etc.) and a large bathroom with Kiehl toiletries. We especially liked the area as it was quiet at night with no loud bars or nightclubs either on the property or adjacent to it. It is just a few blocks from restaurants like Nobu and Tribeca Grill. The property sits directly above the Chambers St. Red Line (1, 2, 3 train) so you can get uptown quickly (Time Sq/Theather Dist and Columbus Circle). SoHo is one mile north/northeast and the Meat Packing Dist is two miles north/northwest of the hotel. The hotel guests we met appeared to be well-educated professionals who were quiet during the evening hours. We'll definitely stay here again. The room door was set to close and did so very forcefully. It should be adjusted so that the weight of the door does not close so quickly and forcefully. It was difficult to bring in/take out luggage. Also, the thermostat/room temp control was difficult to operate. However, the large comforter was warm enough that the room temperature issue did not present a problem in getting a good night's rest. Plus, I'm confident that had I/we found these problems to be more annoying that the helpful staff at the Smyth would have addressed them quickly; we were too busy enjoying NYC to be phoning in complaint calls to the front desk.
The proximity to our friends 10 minutes away and the easy walk to Chinatown, great restaurants as well as the subway.I liked the modern decor and the ability to open the windows as well. We were offered a 50% discount to stay over on Sunday night. We were not there long enough!
Modern features like iPod dock, latest tv, modern stylish bathroom, large windows
Very nice hotel, plenty of room, nice bathroom with nice translucent shower -- you typically don't get this much space in New York. Staff was friendly and I enjoyed the 1960's metal robots behind the lobby checkin desk. It's located in a good neighborhood, if not a bit generic. There are also a lot of nearby restaurant options, and it's a short walk to other areas with even more options. Bed was very comfortable. Lower floors can be loud with little insulation from traffic, including car stereos. I would request a high floor. Breakfast in the hotel was ruled not very good by both folks in our party, and it was rather expensive, so I'd probably eat elsewhere. However you don't pick a hotel for the restaurant and everything else was otherwise great.
Attentiveness and responsiveness of staff, the room, which was a joy to in which to spend time, and the quality of service throughout the stay. I'm always anxious at Smyth about having a room with sufficient peace and quiet that I can enjoy my stay, but this time I had a room on Floor 8 that was not close to the lift - very relaxing.
the location was key. the rooms were decorated well and loved the tub in the bathroom. there was a problem with the temp of the room. it was 81 degrees and we couldn't set the thermostat. we asked for the front desk to check in at 8:30 and when we got home at 2:30- it was 79 degrees. it took time for someone to come up and fix and by that time- it was 3am.
I asked if the hotel had any rooms with a bathtub. They made sure to give me the one room that had one. The staff and door men were really nice and helpful. The hotel lobby was under construction. While I didn't mind not being able to have a working restaurant or bar in my hotel, I did mind that the construction began at 7 am. The pounding and jack-hammering woke me up. They should at the very least wait until 9 am. It made me rush out the door rather than relax before starting my day. On my last day (after being woken up by the construction noise ) I threw on my clothes and just left. I requested to the staff I should be compensated. My phone didn't work very well in the hotel. I found myself going up and down the elevator to go outside to use it. Why charge $15 a day for Wifi? I also had trouble using the elevator cards. 5 and 6 times before the little green light came on so I could push my floor button.
beautifully done and quiet
The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room wa awesome and comfortable.
Lovely comfortable rooms great staff brilliant location Having to pay for wifi
Great view, clean rooms, very attentive bellhop and staff. An air conditioning unit that was never able to reach the desired temp and a rattle from the unit itself all night long.
Clean, beautiful view, attentive staff 20min cab ride to uptown
We had a good experience at the hotel. Staff was nice and rooms were very clean. Only minor negatives: Room service food, particularly breakfast, isn't really that good, which forced us to start going out for breakfast ( 3 out of 5 stars). However no worries because it's NYC so there is plenty of food around. Location isn't the greatest, but it's close enough ( 4 out of 5 starts). The 9/11 memorial is right across the street, which is convenient, but other than that, you'll generally be taxiing or ubering everywhere. My boyfriend forgot his keys and didn't realize until we were back in DC. The great news is that the housekeeper did turn in the keys, but the guy in the list and find area was being a dick, asking him the most ridiculous questions... We still haven't received the keys either. Hopefully they actually send them.
Baggage check & location
They easily accommodated all of my requests and the staff was delightful in all of their interactions. Beyond that, the hotels looks nice, has clean facilities and has a great location next to the One World Trade Center/Freedom Tower, as well as connections to a variety of subway lines. Very convenient.
Beautiful hotel. The room was clean, nice and had an amazing view of the Freedom tower! Well worth the money
The rate was great for NY. Room was clean and the bellman are always helpful. The bathrooms in the lobby are disgusting. If you're having a drink down there you have to constantly go up to your room to use the restroom since the others are so dirty and smell like urine. The concierge was not helpful. When asking for recommendations to restaurants, he would only direct us to their restaurant in the 3rd floor. Also asked him about the Book of Mormon show, he called and tickets were over 325 ea. We had to talk to other a couple others in the hotel who gave us recommendations and we got tickets for a little over 130 ea. Seems lazy or completely unaware - probably shouldn't be the concierge.
Location was what we liked and felt vary safe at all times. The staff was friendly and the room was clean and comfortably. The parking was a great convenince but seamed pricey when you add it to the room cost. Maby price it per visit vs per night.
Loved everything from staff to the fresh new high class bed sheets 55 dollars a day to park, moved 1 bottle of champagne in the fridge and was charged 20 dollars for it, due to the sensors on the bottles, called front desk and they removed it from the bill with no issue though.
fast elevators, clean rooms, super quiet, great pool, big windows, nice/spacious lobby, subway entrance out front to ACE and R. Comfortable beds/pillows/linens
Good value No
Excellent location near to numerous subway stations. The staff were welcoming and professional.
it was in the center of a lot of attractions the wrong address is on the advertisement. It states 170 Broadway but it is not even on Broadway and believe me New York is not the place to get lost!! We drove around for over 2 hrs trying to find the hotel. The valet took $55 from us!!

I loved this hotel. It was perfect! The staff was super accommodating and friendly. The room was clean and quiet. Good mix of couples, and families with older children. For the location and price, I could not have stayed a better place.
I liked bringing my creature comforts from home and I didn't sacrifice my diet. I had the King Room with the full kitchen and it was well equipped, even more than I had expected. I was able to pick up goodies from the Greenmarket on Union Square. The location given wasn't accurate on GPS.

The bed is very comfortable, and the shower is excellent. Can't think of anything.
The hotel staff overall was fantastic. The breakfast staff was absolutely outstanding, so pleasant, attentive and professional!! Kudos! N/a

Awesome staff. Great having a full kitchen, saved a lot of money in NY. The charge to park/store my car for three nights/four days was about the same or less than one roundtrip Amtrak ticket from Boston (where I live). Very nit-picky here: the pillows were flat -- the feathery kind that flattens as soon as you put your head on it. Also, TV channels kind of stink if traveling with kids, no learning, just NICK, TOON, and ABC Family. BUT good tv, can plug in devices.
Great Hotel, good location, very modern, comfortable Water pressure in hotel was poor, shower a tricle, staff couldn't resolve
Modern interior, European feel. Clean and efficient rooms. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Fantastic bed.
Hotel was clean and well presented. Breakfast good although pricey. Beds very comfy. Staff generally pleasant. Location good for downtown areas only It was very noisy (traffic) and room was opposite the lift so some internal noise as well. We were not charged the agreed booking price despite pointing this out twice. Air condtioning very noisy/ineffective so forced to open windows at night hence increased noise.
LOcation, and value
The staff was friendly and responsive. The location was great. Bed and shower were very nice. The rooms were small and we were woken out by another guest coming home loudly at 3:30 am. However, it's NYC!
Centrally located so many different burroughs were close by (SoHo, Greenwich Village, Chelsea). We had a king room and it was very tiny. Nice accomodations just small. There was a little mold in shower. And the shower is rainfall style positioned on a tall ceiling so you couldn't adjust the direction of spray if you wanted to.
I liked the fact that the hotel was very private and very clean.
The hotel was on walkingdistance of public transport and a lot of places of interest
Very nice new and clean rooms. Quite noisy especially on the Street side, they tried to charge me with a breakfast I did not have, staff a bit unfriendly.
Small dimension Too much noise from the street.
the hotel was great i got agreat deal with booking it early,make sure you do this.
it was close to everywhere in the city the staff is very friendly and helpful the hotel small and cozy
Air conditioner undersized and loud.
It's modern, clean, great location!!! If you are a family of 4 or less is great! We are a family of 5. The room is too small, we didn't have space for an extra bed so one of us had to sleep on the floor... And there's no space for bags, luggage or anything extra...
Location, location, location. Room was small, but average sized for the area; good value. Bathroom could use a remodel.
We were hosting a conference at a nearby bank, which was only four blocks from the hotel. Therefore, it was very convenient business-wise.
The location was wonderful, right next to the A and C and 1, 2, 3 lines. All less than a block from the hotel. The rooms were cozy w/ great room temperature control. The staff were very friendly and helpful too. Starbucks right next to hotel, which was great because they didn't have coffee or fridges in the rooms. The hotel was doing construction on the floors below us and they started hammering, drilling, and sawing very early, so sleeping in on vacation was impossible. What really annoyed me was while checking out the guy ahead of me who was also checking out made a big stink about the noise and he was comped a night. I complained and only got any apology. Perhaps, if I was not a young Hispanic woman, but a rich looking white dude I would have gotten comped too. The water temperature was hard to control as it was either frigid or scalding.
Location, lication, location...and price for NYC. Good bed and a clean washroom with nice soaps and shampoo. Big stain on carpet, noisy window air con unit.
The hotel was really clean and met the basic points which was a big plus (especially after hearing that other hotels in the city contain cockroaches...). Also, the location was decent and close to the subway so it was really easy to get around in the city. The staff was also friendly and I liked how there were computers in the lobby that the guests could use. The rooms are tiny! I felt like I was back in the college dorm rooms. For the rate of the room, I was expecting bigger rooms. Personally, I thought the value of the room wasn't there for what we paid but the rooms were decent and if you're in the City, I suppose all the rooms are going to be smaller and more expensive.
the location was perfect for my needs The staff was way too rude..particularly the maintenance guy. BTW who ever needed a maintenance person in a hotel. Those rooms are supposed to be already perfect. At first, they sent me to a room in which I had to use stairs to get to my bed and my head would bump against the ceiling when I reached the top. Since the AC was located at the bottom of the room and fan not directly on top of the bed, it felt really hot upstairs. When I complained that this room didn't look anywhere close to what I saw in the pictures, at first they said all rooms are booked. Then, they finally relented after I pushed more. The other room was small in size but once again was hot and I had to deal with the same maintenance guy. All night, the place was very noisy with people going in and out, the doors seemed to be clanging all night.
Clean, convenient, quiet Interior, reasonable price for the location. Tiny room, tiny bathroom, antique elevator, long hallway with turns and stairs, loud 4 a.m. garbage trucks.
Location, next to the subway and Brooklyn Bridge. Staff, very friendly and welcoming. My room, a loft, was creative. Great historic pics on the walls. Fitness Center. Access to computers. Only that I took too much time booking it and the price on my website went up a little, but that's my doing.
Does exactly what it says on the tin....clean,great staff... Good value.
Friendly staff, nice rooms, quick elevator, exceptional rate See comment on question no. 1
I booked one room with 2 beds but they gave me a room with only one bed... and charged me for the first!!!! :-(
The very quiet location, for New York (when emergency vehicles were not sounding off). The comfortable bed. Yes, we very much missed a coffee-maker. We did not use the snack center.
The ability to be able to travel anywhere in new york, its proximity to subway and bus stops. Good food nearby as well.
Transportation hub nearby. The room is tight. Barely any space to place a big bags.
I liked the modern comfort in the rooms. They were typical city sized rooms but they were clean and had everything that was advertised. I also really liked the fact that we weren't in Times Square or other very very busy areas because we could sleep at night with almost no noise. Finally, because it is literally a 2 minute walk from the nyse and Wall Street (and the 1-2-3 metro direct to Times Square & Penn Station) it was extremely secure as there is security 24 hours a day 7 days a week guarding the stock exchange. The only thing I didn't like was that we asked for 4 towels for our Queen room (we had one king room for 2 people and one queen room for 4) and we didn't get a 4th towel.
Small hotel but very comfortable with rooms funished to a very good standard. Very comfortable beds - loved the duvets and the pillows were the best I've ever slept on! Good location as although not in mid town it is very convenient for the subway so getting around was very easy. The only problem encountered was the fact people didn't know where the hotel (or Nassau street) was located! ie airport shuttle, taxis. Think this is largely down to the fact the hotel is so new. Just tell them it's a couple of blocks in from Ground Zero - which they should have heard of!
The room with two double beds is very small for four people
Cleanliness of the room and bed; proximity to my destination Lack of restaurants near the hotel
It was convenient to the Wall Street and Broad Street businesses. The room was clean and comfortable, perfect for an overnight stay.
Clean, trendy, friendly staff, small cafe available 24/7, bar area available Nothing
Clean, modern decor with very friendly staff The AC was loud, and the thermostat was confusing, but they were aware of and fixing the loudness issue.
