Just finished up a stay and loved it.

As a Gold we got $40 credit for breakfast for two people per room (even through there were more in both rooms). Which $20 each should get a good breakfast, no juice.
We got no upgrade but I can verify the place was sold out.

Very lovely modern hotel and very artsy. They are all about the art of the hotel. Reminded me a little bit of a lighter wood version of Park Hyatt Tokyo in the room. Loved the dividers between rooms and like the separate shower design. Lobby was as is, in pictures.
Some say technology is over the top... they must be grandparents, it's pretty simple. Lights are digital and stuff. Though I will say, when I called for late check out they said I was already checked out? Huh? They said maybe via the TV or something? Idk.

No complains, would return again. Though, it is a few blocks walk to the subway.

Great hotel! Well worth 50k if you want to be in Battery Park. Though the rates go as low as $199.

Just finished up our 3 day stay (29-1st) and I have to say, nice hotel poor service and not a conrad

$600/night for:
- no doorman after 11pm
- no turn down service any night
- 1 concierge at 11am on Sunday the 30th (line of 10 people waiting to use service)
- room not made up by 5pm
- below par breakfast with limited choices for gold/diamond

less than ideal, they should send their management to the Conrad in Hong Kong to learn a few things about service

Didn't have those problems. Room was made up by noon. Enjoyed breakfast but was very limited for elites - I agree. Didn't have a liine. The others may be true. But I don't pay for my hotels... so i guess if I were paying $600 a night I would expect a doorman.

So has the breakfast recently been downgraded from the 5 or so continental options to $20 ? That would mean it does not even cover one of the previous options I think.

No you get a choice of the existing items or the $20 credit.

It may be two continental (which some of the items are jokes (like pieces of fruit)) or $40 credit... which maybe could go towards one person? idk. But I think it's suppose to be $20 each. But the cheapest thing is like $16 for eggs on bread and juice is $7. So that's the advantage of the continental - it comes with juice.

Not exactly the highlight, as it's not much... but it was good.

Not true. Some suites only come with sofa.

Just finish my stay for 4 nights. We got upgraded to Hudson View. Well, we couldn't check in early and they "forgot" to call us when the room was ready.

Free breakfast is fine. You can choose from 5 HHonor menu or $20 credit to regular menu. Although, I hate to the wait. You need to wait to be seated, then wait for waiters and for your food. Service is really bad. We only had breakfast for 2 days. I rather pay for my coffee and bagel than waste 1-2 hours there.

Bell service is slow.

I guess we were very lucky but in our stay, 2 nights, we only had to wait 5' to be seated and probably 10' to be served.
I agree 1-2 hours is not worth independently of being free or not.

Just came back from a stay here. It's a very nice and modern hotel with rooms much larger than average NYC size. It was all a very pleasant stay except for the ridiculous Internet charges for non-gold members. It's ridiculous enough that they charge for internet these days, but they also charge by device. Their sign on page gave no apparent warning about this. Luckily the front desk person was willing to credit back some of these charges. Just be aware.

Yes. As you can at any other HH property where Internet is complimentary for Diamonds and Golds. Its usually one daily code that you can punch into whatever you want.

Not all properties work this way, for example the Hilton Madrid Airport issues vouchers valid on one device at a time.
