We stayed four nights last week, and we were pleased with our stay. The lobby is small which is definitely noticeable when the front desk is busy with guests. We had a king suite, and we found it on the smaller side for a suite. Not a big deal. The staff we encountered were all helpful. Cedric (bartender) was fun to talk with at the end of long days/nights of being out in NYC. We didn't encounter any elevator issues - guess we were lucky as we were on a higher floor. The hotel was very busy with guests for our entire stay, but we didn't have any issues.
The room was clean, quiet and definitely met our needs.
The location was great. The hotel isn't in the most glamorous of spots (middle of 29th between 6th and 7th - fairly nondescript), but it is very central. We walked to quite a few places throughout our stay. The proximity to Penn Station and other subway lines was great as well. This made it easy to hop on the subway and get to the places we wanted to go. I will say that we never felt uneasy or unsafe at any time with the location.
We would definitely consider returning to this hotel the next time we visit NYC.
