Cops said one of the suspects brandished a firearm and demanded money from the hotel's desk clerk.
Police said the same suspect then pistol whipped another employee as the three other suspects held him down and demanded he get money from the back offices.
The suspects then fled the hotel without any money, according to police.
Police ask anyone with information about the attempted robbery to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
