10.0 Excellent
Pros:Staff was great!
8.5 Great
Pros:The staff were very friendly, carried our luggage, and even upgraded our room to have a terrace which was huge! The room was also very clean. We could hook our phones to the smart tv or rent any movie we wanted. The location is awesome. We could walk to Bryant Park, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, etc.

Cons:The elevator was very slow. We also could not change the temperature in the room. I kept setting it to 66-68 and somehow it stayed on 74 or would automatically change back to 74 during the day/night. It was extremely hot. Additionally, there is no hotel parking. We had to circle the block on our own. The hotel did give us a discount though.

10.0 Excellent
Pros:From the moment you spot the flower crowned steps and friendly doorman you'll know you found a diamond in the rough of Manhatten. The William combines a classic touch with a very hip flare. The room was immaculate and complete with high tech accessories, high end toiletries, and the best - your very own Nespresso bar. The staff were super helpful and efficient, and you have your choice of an intimate cocktail lounge or adjoining tavern to enjoy.
