There is a lot of construction going on outside but honestly, it never really bothered us at all. The hotel left a letter in our room apologizing for the noise and offering a free drink at their bar to compensate for it. We did not take advantage of that - we just weren't ever in the room except late at night to sleep until the following morning.
I like staying downtown - there a many subway lines close by and I like the downtown atmosphere.
We stayed here twice in the past month and each time the room was clean and rather large. Some rooms (like the one under us on the 14th floor) had a balcony with a little table and chairs. I didn't have any issues with the front desk staff but they are busy - there always seems to only be one person available regardless of how many people are waiting to checkin or checkout. Free wifi is a plus.
I would stay here again if the price were right.
