Currently have 3 nights booked at CitizenM in July, got a good deal (for NY anyway, $224). My GF wants to stay in Manhattan but the CM rooms are only 175 sq feet and she's not sure she would like one that small. Our other acceptable choices are quite a bit more. I do see the Verve out in LIC for a good rate ($150 for regular room, $180 for a suite), My question is how is the Verve? It's ranked #1 here for LIC for what that's worth anyway. How close to the subway? Safety, etc??? She may be convinced to stay in LIC.
Also if anyone has stayed at CitizenM, I believe it's only been open a short time. But opinions are appreciated.
