“Great service, handy for Javits”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We stayed here for a couple of nights while attending a conference at Javits Center. It's handy for that -- very few other hotels anywhere nearby, but it is also near enough to restaurants, coffee shops etc. so you are not totally isolated. Staff were super helpful and friendly throughout.

The hotel was everything we needed. Yes, the rooms are small but we were there to see NYC not to hang in our room. Nicely decorated, modern room with a Kings size bed!

The hotel is outside of the tourist zone and thank god. We saw so much more by wandering around, and its a 10 min walk to the subway from The Gem.

Would stay here again in a heart beat. The staff were nice and always said Hi when we came and went.

I was pleasantly surprised with the overall accommodations at this hotel. Now granted there are not many extras or inclusions(no room service or onsite restaurant, fitness center, swimming pool or anything else) but you do receive a nicely decorated clean room with some friendly hotel staff in a generally safe area of the city. The room was a decent size considering it's still located in the middle of Manhattan. In the main area, there was a new Toshiba flat screen LCD television which provided a few basic channels. There was a also a nice desk with combination coffee maker and beside this was a wardrobe cabinet which contained a full sized iron plus a room safe with digital lock and some extra toilet tissue rolls in a lower drawer. The bed was always very well made with about 6 or 7 pillows including a decorative red accent one which was useful to prop yourself up at a comfortable angle to read, use a tablet or watch TV. In the bathroom, was a clean full bath with shower, the new rounded style shower rod to give you more room and a hairdryer mounted to the wall. There was also dispensers filled with both body wash and shampoo mounted inside the shower below the shower head at a reasonable height. All of these were upscale name brands including a small glycerine soap, lotion and mouth wash. There was also several glass tumblers and ceramic coffee mugs available along with the usual ice bucket below. There were several selections of Wolfgang Puck coffee and a natural loose leaf tea.

My particular room's view up on the eighth floor was nothing to be excited over and the lack of an in-room refrigerator or microwave was a bit disappointing. Also in our room the MP3 iHome clock radio and alarm was not functioning other than as a simple clock with the current date. To be fair I did not report this to the front desk or housekeeping since I was accustomed to use my Android smartphone for alarms and listening to my own music collection. I also was never able to make any calls from the room to outside numbers but always reached the front desk within 2 or 3 rings.

For the price and it's somewhat industrial location I would gladly recommend if you are looking to stay out of the major tourist sections but still be within a relatively good distance walking to almost anywhere including over to Times Square and many restaurants just a block or two away on 9th Avenue and 35th & 34th Streets. Keep in mind I did not drive and there is no parking available directly at this location so that could be a real problem for some.

Room Tip: The higher floors towards the rear(mine was Room # 804) are much quieter but you may be disappointed...

This was a nice, very small hotel. Given the location close to the Javitts center and Lincoln Tunnel, it was surprisingly quiet. The staff were helpful and kind. The rooms are small, as is the case with many hotels in NYC at this price. It was a good value.

I look for a lot and I found this hotel. It is near Penn station (just at 5-10 minutes walking) and the hotel is very clean and the service very good and nice. In addition to it, it was the cheapesr hotel I found. Thus, I recommend it without any doubt if you look for an hotel next to Penn Station.

Great location, close to everything. Hotel is clean and staff is very friendly. Rooms are exceptionally small and our room was just a little beat up - but again, was very clean. Would stay there again.

Our room was very small and the air-conditioner was noisy. The phone kept ringing during all night long until we unplugged it. Weird sounds coming from the walls. Staff was friendly. Not a convenient area for us, but maybe for others. Interesting furnishings.
