I did a lot of research and saw this hotel was recommended by most of those who stayed there. I would also recommend it if you are looking for something in this area. The price was right and the room was very comfortable. I was worried about it being a 'Boutique' hotel, instead of a chain because I've always stayed in chains, but I was very pleased. My only complaint was that the lobby staff didn't seem that knowledgable about the area.
If you are a light sleeper, you might think the A/C was a little loud but it didn't bother me.
The boxed breakfast was a nice addition, like a grab-and-go snack, not a sit down meal. There's a diner across the street though. Overall there wasn't a lot of nice restaurants nearby, you need to go closer to Union Square for that. Also, the area was a little sketchy overall but I didn't feel unsafe. As long as you are used to city-life, it was fine. I'd say it was similar to NYC.
The price was right and we had a great stay.
