Faded grandeur gets a makeover.
This hotel is in the seemingly unending process of being completely renovated. Gone is the Plexiglas wall that once separated guests from the front desk clerk, gone are the shabby elevators, and gone are the 1970s-style rooms—mostly. (Discounts are available if you’re willing to sleep in one of the yet-to-be renovated rooms.) Still, a feeling of faded, slightly-rundown glory remains at this Midtown hotel, which is sandwiched between busy Sixth Avenue and even busier Times Square. The rooms are quite standard and the usual cable TV channels, air conditioning and telephone are all in place, plus new wireless Internet access. A single blue- or green-painted wall in each of the rooms helps detract from some of the blandness. Most have a view of a dank courtyard.
