Best hotel in the Union Square neighborhood
The Clift is a beautiful hotel with very friendly and attentive staff (especially Barbara, Todd and Tony). They create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. I can't wait to come back on my next trip!

Nice room, nice staff
The Clift has had a recent renovation and was terrific overall. My room was looking good and the bed/pillow were very comfortable. The lobby is great and the staff was delightful and attentive. The Union Square area isn't as nice as it once was, but that isn't a hotel issue of course.
