I stayed for 4 nights end of June. Hotel location is unbeatable, just half a block from Times Square, and 1 1/2 blocks from subway, super convenient. From La Guardia I bought a Metro card for $10.51 at Hudson newsstand, and with it I took bus 60 then change (ask bus driver) to take the subway and exit Rockefeller Plaza-47th St (I believe it was the red line 1-2-3). Hotel was 1 1/2 blocks away.
Staff at front desk was extremely nice, friendly and helpful, particularly Jovannie and Yvonne. Room was clean and decent for NY size. My room faced a brick wall so no noise complaints, I was on the 3rd floor.
Breakfast was decent, again for the hotel rating – fruits, cereal, yogurt, eggs, toasts, etc. The sitting area was busy most of the time so people would take their plates to the lobby or to the room (I did).
Please do NOT use the deli across the street – made that mistake one late night – food was horrible. For some light lunch go to Europa, a chain restaurant, which has fresh salads made on the spot as well as sandwiches and pastas. I had pasta with chicken and veggies made on the spot for $7.50 or so. Food was very good. The closest to the hotel was 2 blocks away on the corner of 46th and 5th.
Internet service is very slow. Go to Starbucks 2 blocks away – Broadway & 47 – much faster. Or if you need a quiet environment take your laptop to the NY public library on 5th Ave, about 6 blocks away. Their service is super fast and free – just beware that they close early (6pm).
Highly recommend this hotel.
