When I checked in, it was 72 degrees in Manhattan. The room did not have AC--only heat.; it was extremely hot and stuffy. I did not stay there.

Negatives: $20 'facility fee' that isn't on the final payment to Travelzoo and is in very small print, slow elevators, odd flooring in bedrooms

I was very surprised to have to pay a facilities charge of $20.00 for our room. I thought the amount that I paid to TravelZoo was the total. When asked what the facilities charge was for, I was told it included wifi and the exercise room

Reserved this hotel based on price. Travelzoo stated a price including all taxes. But they did not mention the $20 per night facility charge. Surprise surprise at checkout.
