Heat air unit remained one temperature 75 degrees and rattled and hummed, it did not automatically come on and off to maintain a constant temperature. In December we had to leave a window cracked to keep the room comfortable. Security was called to the floor two nights once for cigarette smoke filling our bathroom and room from a vent that connected to a floor below. The second incident woke us and kept us up from 4am to 5:45am when two patrons fought and then proceeded to use very loud and offensive language to speak to security who detained them in the hallway. This was frightening for my children. During the remainder of our stay the hallway was filled with smoke and the smell of marijuana, management was made aware. We were never offered a floor change or any type of respite. The room was dated, the carpet was stained and dirty with large accumulations of dust under the beds, air unit, and closet. Pipes squealed and ticked constantly. Mattress was worn and indented and uncomfortably springy. Absolutely not worth the money spent very disappointing to find this type of accommodation on - up until now my experience has been awesome.

The breakfast was very good, tasty, in the restaurant the staff was very kind. The room was comfy except the mouse.
The cost of the accommodation was 500 USD more than the reservation from After we filed the complaints the refund was 320 USD instead of 500 bucks. We had mouse in the tower B. The hotel manager promised to everything would be arranged I did not receive any bill from the hotel nor by e-mail neither by mail. That was the first and the last "staying" in the Watson Hotel.

Spacious for a Manhattan hotel which made my 5 nights stay very comfortable. Tasteful and restrained decor. Quiet, as requested. Clean, with a good sized bath and abundant hot water. Connection to wifi was good as well. In walking distance of midtown and uptown.
Price was reasonable compared to other hotels but still high. No view from window though this is also the norm in most Manhattan hotels.

We had a wonderful view downtown. This was a real highlight.
The bathroom didn't seem to have a working extractor fan, so the room felt damp at times.

Bed is really comfy. Location is good.
There was a trash (napkin and paper folder) on the floor in my room, which I think is just inappropriate. Also no curtains - are you kidding me? What if I can't sleep with a complete darkness? I never complain, but was surprised and annoyed.

Great location, clean hotel with large lobby to hangout in and really comfortable beds. A great value with a ton of restaurants within walking distance, Carnegie Hall minutes away and more.
The Wi-Fi was not a secure network.

easy location to Central Park and it a short walk to the theatre district, time square and Rickafeller center
Lobby was way to hot and room doors bang loudly if left to close on their own, certainly great for security but at 2am, it wakes you up.

The room was relatively large and the proximity to Central Park was nice.
The price for one - $275 for essentially a 1 star hotel is insane. The hotel also does not have A/C which is a massive issue and one I was not made aware of at booking. The heat was on, the room was hot, and opening the windows did little more than to let a little air in and a TON of outside noise. Needless to say, I did not sleep well and would never recommend this hotel. And the icing on the cake is that my room did not have a remote for the tv and it took me multiple requests from the front desk to get a new one.

Stayed here one night due to a last minute cancellation at an Airbnb and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is not a luxury hotel by any means, but you get what you're paying for. For all people whining about everything bad about hotels in New York: pay up if you want a more luxurious stay! This is NYC and you're not going to get a high-end stay by paying for a 3 star hotel so I don't understand what some complainers actually are imagining their money is worth. Stop complaining, live by your budget and enjoy a great location to stay in NYC instead! :)
