Doorman not always present and had to carry luggage up and down lobby stairs. Safe was too small for computer.
I travel for work in the Chelsea neighborhood and I love that there are bigger hotel amenities with a boutique feel. My partner travelled with me this time and the room was plenty big enough for both of us. There is very ample storage for luggage and clothing. Closets had lights that turned on upon opening. I despise dark hotel rooms(the hallways were really dark) and aside from the closets, there were also four lighting options in the room which all had dimmers plus an additional wall light. Although, I did not use the minibar, it was stocked with a great assortment of food, beverages, sex aids and perfume. The bathroom was very clean-I'm a neat freak in that department. Toiletries were C.O. Bigelow, abundant and also included a loofah, toothpaste and nice face pads. Plush robes and a makeup mirror were a bonus. The room had a large clear umbrella for use, which came in handy during a couple days of my stay. There were several magazines in the room-Gotham, Timeout, Paper, and a couple others that were a nice addition and gave a preview of what else was going on during my stay. I ended up seeing a great film at the IFC and a featured gallery show that wasn't on my radar. The room binder was informational had menus from area restaurants that delivered, a great selection of films listed by genre to watch in-room and the lobby had cozy sitting areas surrounded by rows and rows of books and a fireplace!
Continental breakfast was in a beautiful atrium with nice view and complimentary drinks and food in the evening. I was torn between Dream and Maritime(they are right next door to each other) when booking my stay, but after reading about the DJ in the lobby at dream, the noise levels, and comparing room size, I paid a little extra to stay at Maritime and I'm so glad I did. I don't need a party scene and like the quiet nature of the building as a respite from the day. It's my new favorite hotel and I will definitely be back.
