Thank you for your review, we ask all of our guests to show their room keys as a security measure. We want to make sure that everyone that come into our elevators are our guests.

5 out of 5
Great value for money given great location, proximity to Grand Central, 24 hour stores in same block, gym and pool facilities and comforting level of security
