I stayed at the Mont Morris B&B for a little over a week.
The B&B consists of several brownstones easily accessible off a main avenue subway station in Harlem, and a stones throw from a great sun trap park.
The rooms are clean and uniquely decorated, the breakfast is continental self service with a great selection of pastries, cereals, breads, tea/coffee and so on. The shower was en suite and worked really well with quality towels, the bed was very comfortable with a mattress nearly a foot thick. The room came with air con which was good as the July weather consistently hit the upper 90's all week!
The host was super personable, giving out local and city wide suggestions that the average tourist could spend half their trip hoping to find making the stay a big cut above any hotel help/info. This is the advantage of dealing with people who have lived in NYC for over 15 years of their life and are keen on being helpful with a personal touch.
To boot I had the offer to head out of town last minute for a couple of days and so asked to shift my last two days of booking back by 2 days and to my surprise they were able to accommodate this!
Not standard practice by any means and I think I got really lucky with a late cancellation allowing me to slot in like that. Never the less it's testament to the quality of individual care you can get if you book with someone like Mont Morris and not a large faceless chain.
Overall the stay really made my visit 100% better and I am staying here when I come back in April 2013. I can't recommend it enough for the price you pay.
