André Balazs’s lauded West Coast mini-chain arrived in New York in early 2009. Straddling the High Line, the retro 18-story structure has been configured to give each room an exhilarating view, either of the river or a midtown cityscape. Quarters are compact (from 230 square feet) but floor-to-ceiling windows, curving tambour wood paneling (think old-fashioned roll-top desks) and "peekaboo" bathrooms (with Japanese-style tubs or huge showerheads and Kiss My Face products) give a sense of space. Eating and drinking options include a chop house, a beer garden and an exclusive top-floor bar with a massive Jacuzzi and 180-degree views. Rooms 337.

Booked a Saturday night here for my 25th anniversary weekend after longing to stay at this hotel for many years. What a service disaster on every level. The room I wanted and paid for on a high floor was not available even though I booked a month in advance, and even called with my room preference several days before. We waited about 90 minutes for check in altough we arrived at the proper time. We were given a dirty room, with fecal matter still in the toilet from a previous guest. When we complained we were promised a bottle of white wine but it was never delivered. In the morning we had no hot water. Our compensation for this was a credit of $150 off our bill. So still we had to pay $350 for a room with a dirty toilet and no hot water. The worst hotel experience I have ever had, and I have travelled all over the world for 30 years. STAY AWAY.
