I travel frequently to New York on business and I love staying here for fun, clean and a reasonably priced choice.
The hotel is pay as you go with very little staff input unless you need it including check in and check out. It has a very cool bar which gets buzzy at night in the foyer and upstairs. Same area downstairs for pay as you go breakfast where you can get eggs, pastries, bacon, granola etc. The menu and eggs need upgrading though. I would highly recommend for minimum fuss, amazing king size comfy beds and the cool technology and free movies plus working or watching in bed on Airplay. Nice little gym and do your own ironing room. Quirky messages around the hotel keep you amused during your stay. If you sign up as a citizen directly then the rate is cheaper.
Have not yet stayed at the just-opened NYC Times Square version, but I feel certain it will be a PERFECT addition to our Citizen M World. Stayed TWICE at Citizen M Schiphol Aiport, on the way to and from Entebbe, Uganda (ICK!) for an Intelsat Meeting. LOVED the hotel! The 24-hour cafe was essential, the staff were perky and fun, and the free iMac computer in the lobby allowed me to get online and read the Supreme Court's DOMA decision as it was issued (OH! and watch the Derecho wreak devastation on my hometown, Washington, DC, as I sat in cool comfort in Amsterdam! AND we avoided the resulting heat wave in DC; even though we were on the Equator in Kampala, the altitude keeps it nice and breezy there. In addition, on the KLM flight to Rwanda (then a hop to Entebbe), I learned that Madonna was bringing her MDNA Tour to a brand-new Heineken Arena in Amsterdam on my way home. Snagged a prime ticket online in my room at the Hotel Serena in Kampala, and enjoyed door-to-door EXCELLENT rail service by the Dutch, and a fun (rainy) night concert in Amsterdam, where Madonna was superb, AND the ticket was much cheaper than I could have bought back home at the Verizon Arena in DC. Good Times!!!!!
