I saw the bad reviews before arriving but decided to go for it anyway. Bad decision. The one positive is location. Literally steps away from the 1 train at 103rd. I could walk 15 minutes to Columbia. Now for the rest. After a long 5 hr drive arriving at midnight, we arrived very tired and looking forward to settling in. At the front desk, we were told that there was a flood and so two of us would need to share a room for the night. Which would have been fine except the rooms are very small and the "second bed" was effectively a cot that was set up between the bed and the window. To be honest, throughout my stay I was reminded of hotels I had been to in China - not developed big city eastern China, but rural western China - with the small room, constant noise from the hallway/someone else in the building using the water, and a tiny bathroom. Also the slow/inconsistent internet connection. Got up the next morning and was smugly told that our car had gotten a ticket. Not being from New York, it would have been nice to know that we needed to move our car by 7:30am. In fact, we were told nothing about parking when we checked in. In sum, if you're looking for a bed in the city, this place works. You can decide for yourself is $250 is a good price for NYC. If you're looking for anything more than the bare bones, I'd look elsewhere.
