First off, the hotel is not exactly located in the best part of town. There are virtually no restaurants nearby - just a ton of bodega-type merchants. I didn't feel unsafe, but rather unsettled.
The hotel appears to be new, and everything was quite clean. The room itself, however, is not exactly what I would consider a suite. In fact, it's not really any bigger than a standard hotel room. The 'living area' is small with a sofa, coffee table, and mini-fridge with coffee maker. There is a 1/3 wall between the living area and bedroom, and the TV straddles this area. The bed was pretty comfortable, but the drapes didn't exactly meet in the middle, causing light to seep into the room. Worst part - you can hear everything in the room next to you and out in the hallway.
Net, I'm mixed on this one - it was just 'OK.' Unless I really needed to be in this specific area, I would probably pass it up.
