Rated 4 out of 5 by Soundofmusic Works for me
Overall a good experience. Different experiences with different staff. There are two issues, one the quality of talent and secondly what the staff have to work with. We keep our expectations lower for FourPoints. Overall this is a good location for lower Manhattan, Soho and the Village. Near to both Path and the Subway. Rooms had no light switch near bed, one had to get out of bed to switch off. No bed side lights per se. Desk sockets worked less than 50% of the time. Bathroom is a reasonable size for a small Manhattan Hotel. Building site next door mean a sharp 7am wake up !

Rated 4 out of 5 by Oct18weekend Good stay but could improve responsiveness
This was my 2nd time staying at the hotel, I really liked the location last time since it was close to good neighborhoods for restaurants w/o feeling like I was getting overwhelmed by the crowd as in other Starwood hotels in Manhattan. Its location also worked out that it was closest to the wedding I needed to attend. I liked that I was immediately offered the higher floor with larger corner room and good view bcs of my platinum status. However, one inconvenience that arose was that one of the 2 elevators did not function for the entire time I was there (Saturday - Monday) and it created long wait and chaos around check-out times as foot traffic increased. I guess the hotel could not find someone to fix that elevator during the weekend, which I think is hard to believe in a city as busy as NYC, surely there must be some emergency crew that can be called upon?! Also, I wish the staff could have warned its guests on Saturday as they were walking in that the elevator had problem so they could be mindful of that as they planned times to leave and checkout or go somewhere since the elevator wait time was longer and I am sure for those who were at lower floors and couldn't get in when the elevator was full they were even more frustrated. Perhaps the hotel could have offered to help those guests with the luggage down the stairs instead of waiting for the elevator? Anyway, not a big problem for me but just some things that I would recommend you to consider in case of future elevator problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 My worst Starwood experience
I typically stay at the W or Westin, but found this Four Points more conveniently located for a recent business trip. Regretted every minute of it.
-Shower leaked all over the bathroom floor. Upon examination, I noticed that they had attempted to remedy the problem with a strip of duct tape along the bottom of the door. That's simply unacceptable for a hotel that you're paying several hundred dollars per night for.
-When I informed the front desk of the problem and asked them to have it fixed the next morning, they told me I'd need to call back at the time I wanted them to come up because they couldn't schedule maintenance visits in the future. When you inconvenience a customer in this way -- even if you don't have the technological capability to schedule it in the computer, make a note for the morning staff and have them take care of it. Your goal should be to minimize the inconvenience to the customer.
-The blinds would not close. They had to fix that as well.
-The elevators are painfully, painfully slow to arrive.
-Construction noise on the seventh floor was so intolerable after the first night that I bought earplugs the next day and still heard it.
Beyond all that though, the biggest issue is that at no point did the staff actually seem to care about the inconvenience. Very disappointing, and certainly my last stay at this Four Points.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SPGuser123 small rooms; no parking
During check in, the front desk representative told me he was, "giving me the best rooms in the house." Upon arrival to the rooms, my first thought was,"if this is the 'best', there's certainly plenty of room for improvements."
The rooms were really small, but modern looking, a bit TOO modern in one major respect. The bathroom door was pretty much frosted glass entirely. That may be fine for a king suite/room expected for a couple or people who know each other well, but for a double bed room, that is really cutting into the wrong territory. Due to the frosted glass, at night, if someone needs to use the bathroom, you're practically disturbing the entire room from the bathroom light shining through the frosted glass into the sleeping area. When someone is naked in the bathroom, anyone outside could see EVERYTHING, things that some may never want to see. Again, perfectly fine and may be welcomed between a couple, but for double bed rooms where it probably isn't for a couple, the frosted glass bathroom door has to go. That's the biggest complaint besides the very tiny room with minimal space to fit 4 suitcases/bags for a potential 4 people room. No fridge either, but probably due to the small size.
After seeing how small the room size was, I looked at the map and realized that half of the floor is split between 2 much larger rooms. Your front desk receptionist really did a good job setting people's expectations high to only be dropped down like a bomb.

This hotel is in a great neighborhood and if you get a higher floor it has a really nice view as well. Facilities (both breakfast restaurant and gym) need improvement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nicknameme Skip this Starwood Property
I'm shocked to see so many 5 star reviews. As a Gold member I have stayed at numerous Starwood properties, this is by far the worst. As I sit here in my room I am looking at the wall of my smaller than college-dorm room and see a variety of stains that only leave me guessing what happened here in years past. Haven't slept all night as the "air conditioner" is more like turbine engine turning on and off and awakens me with each turn. The smell of mildew is pervasive. The whole place (from the lobby to the hallways to the rooms) feels claustrophobic. Ugh...checking out in a few hours...can't wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShondaBWhite Leon, Corey and Staff are Awesome
I completed the official survey but I have to give a special shout-out to Leon, Corey and the rest of the staff (including the short guy that was there when we checked in on 8/24 that afternoon. It was Leon's first day and I couldn't even tell because he was so helpful. Corey came along the next day and he was just as helpful and polite. All of the staff was so helpful and willing to answer our 5 million questions from me and my mother. Quality customer service is hard to come by but these guys really make you all look GOOD!! They made our stay that much better! So, thank you thank you thank you and if the manager is reading this, please reward them in some way because they totally deserve it - all three of them - I just forgot the other guy's name. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kELL99 Best service ever. Maintenance - not so helpful.
The most responsive, speedy, and helpful Guest/Hotel Services I've ever experienced. Well done.
One elevator broke down during rush-move out time. 30-minute waits are not so well done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by EMAG Worst Hotel I have ever stayed at
It was a terrible experience. Construction outside window woke us up at 6:30am. Toilet did not flush properly, carpet was damp and musty smelling, Water stains all over ceiling. Disgusting room. Staff was kind, but overall bad experience - will never return

Rated 3 out of 5 by Estes11 wait until the Construction is done to stay here
The front desk person was amazing. She was very thorough and extremely professional. The problem with the hotel is the massive construction project going on which is producing very very loud noise as a result. I couldn't take a nap during the day due to this jack hammer and drill sound coming from the construction. Had I known about this project I would have stayed elsewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LaLaLexington a bit of a letdown
I have stayed at the Sheraton in Tribeca three or four times but decided to give this one a try because of the great location. But it was a bit of a letdown. Tiny, cramped lobby with nice, but overstretched staff. Room was fine, completely acceptable but just not as nice as the Sheraton in Tribeca. Probably won't go back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TJSH84 Simple in a great location
The location is perfect - where West Village meets SOHO meets Tribeca. Within a short walking distance to the water as well. Unfortunately there was construction happening which didn't provide for a rested sleep (wish I would've been informed about this prior to checking in). The walls are quite thin as well and I could hear people coming and going all night long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Avatar2014 First stay
I stayed at the top floor which was very convenient since it kept away the noise from the traffic and occasional construction work.
It was my first stay at the hotel and I would definitively consider staying there again if I get a floor high up in the building.
I did not try the restaurant and therefor I can not give any comments on the food.
I think the staff was friendly and accommodating.

Loved the area, so it was a nice base to work out of. The lobby was quite small and the bar/restaurant doesn't open until late afternoon, which was a little inconvenient, but overall, the hotel was clean and offered the necessities. I would recommend it for the value and area.

Front desk service was great, so friendly and helpful in accommodating our needs. Room was perfect, clean, working air conditioner, bathroom was clean - exactly what we needed for a comfortable one night stay. Location was convenient and easily accessible via subway and short walk from the nearest station.

My 5-day stay at the Four Points SoHo was fine in most respects. The location is good, room comfortable--not super large but adequate size. Staff very friendly and helpful. A couple of issues but not enough to prevent a recommendation.

Not comfortable, room wasn't clean and was missing coffee, shampoo and simply not ready. Also no soundproof so we woke up every time a door was closing across the hall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by charlottetrying Needs improvement.
last resort spg property...i.e. if you're priced out in Manhattan and need the points, then go. Otherwise, try harder somewhere else. Bathroom facilities had massive issues (water leaking out of the shower pan because of slow drainage, shower handle tube leaking,...), windows paper thin (pack high quality earplugs). Staff will give you the bare minimum. Not sure if this meets spg standards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jhuf Good Hotel, needs improvement on basics...
I had a good stay at this hotel, it was clean and comfortable. The staff was excellent and helped quickly with a couple of small requests. But, when I woke in the morning to go to my interview, i found that the in-shower dispensers for shampoo, conditioner, and gel were all empty. This is a small inconvenience, but when in a hurry for important obligations, it becomes a bigger problem.

THIS HOTEL IS VERY CLOSE TO GREAT SHOPPING AND WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO HISTORICAL LANDMARKS-CHINATOWN. MANY GREAT CAFE*S IS ALSO WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE SINCE THE HOTEL IS LOCATED IN SOHO. THE FASHION INDUSTRY OUTLETS IS ALSO WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE IF YOU LIKE TO PURCHASE THE LASTEST TRENDS AND DESIGNS.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Grace09 Expected More
The staff was very unfriendly and inconsiderate. At one point I got stuck in one of the two elevators for about 30 seconds after a dramatic fall, and the staff's only response was, 'the elevator you are referring to is currently undergoing repairs." They had not shut it down, there was no sign, and they continued to let guests utilize it after I reported the fall and delay in letting me out. The food at the attached restaurant was mediocre at best. The stay was pretty much average and not something I would necessarily book again if I had the choice.
