Great Hotel and very friendly staff who go over and beyond. We arrived well before normal check in time (3pm) but managed to get a room by 12pm thanks to the lovely team at the Donatello. Very close proximity to Union Square, shopping mall, outlets, restaurants and takeaways. Would definitely stay here again.
