Stayed at the Mave for 9 nights on October. The hotel has a great location in the Flatiron District, a few blocks away from 28th and 23rd Metro stations (though I recommend using 23rd St. station since it is a much nicer walk, across Madison Square Park. There is a 24hour store across the street named Essen, where you can eat or take out food, which turns out to be very convenient. Next door to the hotel you have a bar called Shortys, where you can enjoy a beer and have a decent philly cheese stake if you feel like it.
Having read many reviews complaining about the average room size, we opted for a Boulevard King, on the 9th floor, which is the largest room the hotel offers, and it turned out to be quite comfortable for two. There is plenty of space for stowing luggage, hanging space and drawers for clothes. Bathroom is spacious, and the shower large enough for two. (Our room had a bathroom with standard shower curtains, as opposed to the glass panes you see in the pictures. Maybe that´s why the floor didn´t flood as bad as many other reviewers mention). The window-mounted AC worked fine, but it was loud. Not unbearable, but I would recommend earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
Coffee and pastries are served at the lobby in the morning. You can either take them up to your room, or have them on the go, since there are only two chairs to sit in the area, and it tends to get rather crowded. By no means I would call this breakfast, but it´s complimentary and therefore a nice touch. There is a coffee maker in the room also.
Housekeeping was efficient and kept the room clean, toiletries, coffee and cream replaced daily. My only complaint would be that our sheets were not changed during our whole stay (9 nights).
Check in and check out was fast, and staff courteous.
I would stay at the Mave again, mainly based on it´s great location and reasonable rates for NY standards.
