The location of this hotel is perfect for exploring Little Italy and Chinatown. It's at the corner of Grand and Bowery so it's pretty easy to hail a cab.
Enter through the elevator bay and take the elevator to the 2nd floor to Reception. The door is locked at night so have your key ready if you enter late at night. You also need your key to take the elevator to the rooms.
The room we had was on the 7th floor and was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom larger than in most NY City hotels.
The shower is great - speedy hot water and a great shower head.
Our TV remote didn't work and it was quickly fixed without question. The staff greeted us each time they saw us in the hall.
We were at the front of the hotel and did hear some street noise (you are in a huge city after all) and heard some construction noise but that should abate when the improvements to the roads are completed. The location is great because it's right in the middle of Chinatown so if the noise of a thriving and "happening" neighborhood would ruin your visit, stay elsewhere.
I recommend this hotel for location, room quality and hospitable staff. They made some super restaurant recommendations for us.
