    Pros: Central, transit-friendly midtown location.
    Cons: Outdated rooms, spotty service.

    Summary: Typically, four star hotels with rack rates in the $300-a-night range* feature plush bathrobes, high thread count linens, high speed Internet access, fun public spaces, and tempting snacks. Thus, I was excited when my Priceline bid for a three star ... read more
