I am visiting NYC for 5 nights at the start of Feb. I have found what I think is a great rate for the Manhattan at Times Square - $100 per night, room only in a standard room.
I have seen the reviews on TA and notice the renovations that seem to be ongoing at the hotel in the lobby area. To be honest, I'm going to spend most of my time shopping, drinking, and sight seeing so lobby works really doesn't bother me.
But, does anyone know if the hotel is literally 'falling apart'...and thus the renovations, or is it just old & tired (which doesn't bother me).
Also anyone know about the in room WiFi - what the charges are and service is like. (I have tried e-mailing the hotel but no response to date on this matter).
If anyone believes I can find a superior hotel for the same kind of price in the same area, happy for any recommendations. I don't want to have long walks to do what I want to do given the likely weather conditions in NYC in Feb!! I had considered the Marcel at Gramcercy which is available for only slightly more per night and seems much more modern, but location seems not as central??
