Horrible Stay

I was wake up early in the morning 7 AM for the construction work nearby, Harsh Electric Drill sound none stop, there's no way I can sleep, so I leave hotel at 8AM. Breakfast was in room dining only with limit options, There's many SPG/Marriott hotel I can redeem points on with better breakfast options, I'm really regret stay at this hotel, with 5K points redeem difference I will choose St.Regis NY in heartbeat. I write feedback Email to SPG customer service, hotel Welcome office assistance director reply email with my stay time list in March (which actually is in April 29th I clearly listed in the Email along with my reservation number), I think probably he/she just copy&paste these apology Email, from these small things you can see how the hotel act. If you get my time all wrong how can you send specific feedback to the rep I deal with during check in/check out ?

Grand old building, great area

Rochester, New York

Being in the heart of Union Square is great. Being there staying in one of those old NYC buildings that make you feel like you could bump into a Vanderbilt or Rockefeller is something else entirely. It's got the W swank, the W funkiness, the W panache. Room (1910) was comfortable, with a huge bathroom - especially for NYC. Service was great - as was expected at a W. Convenient to everything. Got a very good weekend rate, paid for in advance. HIghly recommend this property.
