My son and I stayed here for a Fri and Sat night visit to NYC. We found the hotel to be comfortable and convenient, and very budget friendly.
The pluses: Service and staff were excellent. Everyone was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The room itself was on the small side but from what I hear about average in NYC. Also, the lowest rate rooms have king beds whereas many NY hotels have queen beds at the low price point and jack the rates for king or 2-dbl rooms. The room was clean and perfectly functional albeit basic. The price was the best feature.
The negatives and other considerations: I was not thrilled with the location even though many reviews here rave about it. The immediate area has little "charm" and not many restaurants nearby. Although there is a subway station right there, the lines we wanted were not accessible from that station. The restaurant served a buffet breakfast but no a la carte options. Although better quality than a hotel with complimentary breakfast, it was not $20pp better, and the fact that I couldnt get a bagel and coffee without buying the full buffet was disappointing.
Overall, this hotel served our basic needs at a good price for NYC but was not a memorable part of our stay. My best one-word description is utilitarian.
