everyone was so relaxed with their dogs etc It was lovely to see...
The afternoon tea. The complimentary champagne provided by guest services. The quality of the food. not being able to get a reservation for dinner at the Cafe Carlyle. Room service was slow in the mornings, great in the evenings.
The safety and convenience of being right in downtown. Easy walking to anywhere. Not much at all.
i usually stay at the four season but this time i wanted an old fashioned new york experience,and it was perfect. the safe did not function in my suite
Very good location close to Central park and Museums
The service,staff, location and beds! Where he AC vents are located and that's right above the bar.
Rooms, dining options, location, spa, service.
Friendly staff; good location; great design. Our deluxe room was large by New York standards. Our grand deluxe room had no bath! Complete lack of freely available guest-friendly wi-fi facilities in the hotel amazed us and caused ongoing problems. Computer in chargeable "business centre" was also faulty. Room temperature did not respond when adjusted by room thermostat. Dining room very cold and breakfast extremely poor in comparison with any other hotel we have visited (especially in Europe). Almost complete lack of public spaces: bar-lounge pleasant but cold and draughty and accommodation overcrowded at times (by members of the public using the dining room) so people (hotel guests!) turned away. The restaurant is apparently rated in New York but the food they sent up on room service was third rate.
It's very central, walking distance to almost all places. Room is big, very clean and overlooking a nice street. Many cafes around for cousy breakfast/branch. My husband usualy preferes 5stars, but never regreted me booking this 3stars hotel. It is comfortable with exellent restaurant (French), full of local people even on Monday night. Night shift staff could be a little more active, but it was not really a problem, just compering to the day time people who were much more helpful.
quietness, spaciousness, location plus good little kitchen...general overall quality of presentation and service..a great stay.
Surrey has a great location so near to Central Park, museums, and shopping. We had a large, comfortable room with a view of Central Park! The staff were knowledgable and helpful.
All of the Staff were friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable. The location of the hotel is outstanding.
Great location; clean rooms, very comfortable bed. Enjoyed the Surrey experience very much ! I kept my booking on booking.com even though I found a cheaper price on Oyster.com (about $60 cheaper for the two nights) and sent booking.com the link within the 24 hour time window from my booking - unfortunately I never got a reply... so much for best price assurance from Booking.com
staff they charged me for internet and you told me(booking told me) it would not be a charge
The comfort and the design of the room. the quality of the bed was outstanding. The breakfast service at their restaurant. Super expensive, petit quantity (and we are not big eaters) and arrogant, slow waiters. We did only go there once!
Modern classy rooms all first class. Best location in NYC. Amazing shower. Not much of a hotel lobby if you need a grand hotel lobby.
free internet connection, nice and helpful staff, tasty breakfast and fresh coffee
The staff helped out with any queries we had and the location was perfect.

I only paid $99/night and still wouldn't stay again. Heat didn't work despite the below freezing temps outside. They had a space heater but no extra blankets. Did not want to spend a second more in the room than necessary. I was upgraded to a larger room which was still the smallest room I have ever stayed in. Felt quite claustrophobic. Most of the staff were super nice, with the exception of a few obnoxious unhelpful ones. Couldn't wait for my stay to be over. Also I saw the shell of a bug on my bed but I'm not sure if it was random or an actual bedbug. Came home with three bites on my body. Not sure. I'll put all my clothes through the dryer just in case.
Location High price for a small room and a tiny shower room. Disorganised breakfast
very comfortable bed, pillows; nice bath, plenty of towels; complimentary breakfast; location; staff the room waspretty small for the price (also closet minuscule); I barely had room to set up and use an ironing board to press some clothes.
I truly thought The Franklin had great customer service. Everyone there was so nice and very helpful. I loved the little breakfast set up they had in the morning. Simple, but just enough to get your day started. And then from 4:30 - 6:30 they offer wine and cheese happy hour. LOVED IT! Good "house" wine, little nuts, dried fruit, and cheese! My mom and I had such a great time sitting in the "common room" and enjoying a hot tea (my mom) and a glass of wine(me). And you are super close the to 4,5,& 6 Lex line, which makes it very easy to get anywhere you're trying to go. There were some draining issues with our tub, but that just comes with an older building. Also, I wish their website would have more pictures available of their property.
Value for the dollar was great. Facility older and small but clean and acceptable. Classic old school place Construction next door only a problem if intend to be in room in daytime (why do that, your in greatest city on earth). No noise at night.
good mattress and the rooms where clean. they offered afternoon wine and nuts which was nice. not as presented on the web site. a quaint hotel on a tree lined street. the hotel was next to a construction site. the lobby was therefor dirty with all the construction dirt brought in. all the trees on the street where cut down due to the construction. it was very noisy. to enter the hotel one had to walk around and under scaffolding. the breakfast was minimal. we went out for breakfast after the first morning even though we had already payed for breakfast. i would not go back!
