      Staff service and cleanliness.

      No free TV service at any level. I was disappointed not to have the regular channels available to watch, such as CNN, CBS, NBC, etc.

      Room was very comfortable, however, the bathroom was very small. Friendly staff. Would stay there again.

      Friendliness of staff. Good location, very convient for the subway on Lex and restaurants on 3rd & 2nd Avenues. Small and personal

      Rooms are small, but adequate.

      Location + nice decor

      Room size + breakfast choice (fine for 1 or 2 days but for a longer stay like mine is not - I had to eat the same every day which wasn't great).

      The Franklin was comfortable and chic. We were visiting family and it was a great find in the area. We will visit again.

      Wi-fi never worked through 7-day stay. The free lobby PC is a laptop mounted at an awkward angle - don't think even an astronaut would manage it.

    • Single

      The staff was helpful and friendly.

      Shower/bath had no hot water. WiFi did not work properly, I could not get internet connection and had to go to Starbucks to get online. Not good at all.

    • Older travelers

      Staying at the Franklin reminds me of being in a European city. It has an old world feel but modern luxuries. It is located in a great residential neighborhood that does not have alot of hotel options.

      I was pleasantly surprised with The Franklin Hotel as I picked it somewhat randomly for a business trip into NYC. It was very cozy, quaint, and had a very strong European feel to it. Would definitely stay again.
