Since it is 400m from Grand Central, it offers a walking distance (even with luggage) if you travel by underground or bus from any airport. Then it is also walking distance to Times Square, 1 km only to Central Park or Empire State, 1,5 km to the Hudson river (and Intrepid museum).
With such location this is still mid-price - we paid approx. 600 USD for 3 nights for 4 persons.
No breakfast included, just tea/coffee/chocolate machine downstairs. Anyhow, a couple of food alternative at the corners.
Loud air condition machines, the loudest of all we experienced thourghout the eastern coast. We did sleep, but still the machines were too loud.
The biggest drawback - due to limited availability, they offered a room before refurbishment. That was a crap - looked like not refurbished since 1960's. Doors difficult to close, stinky walls/beds, toilette equipment far from perfect functioning etc. The discount on this should have been at least 50% vs. normal room price, while it was only 25%. I told them that and surprisingly have not received any discount (whereas in another hotel I got 10% discount on Internet not functioning). Reportedly they have only 3 such rooms left and refurbishment scheduled for January 2013, so the issue might be gone. Anyhow - beware !
Neither restaurant nor swimming pool available.
