Just returned from 4 day mother/daughter Memorial Day weekend trip! This was my 5th trip to NY but first time staying in the city. I usually take train from Newark hotels.
Searched for NY hotel <$200/pn and found great deal on expedia. This location is between 6th and 7th avenue which is walking distance to many locales. Within it's immediate block, there isn't much but 2-4 blocks away you have Kornerstone Cafe, Argo Cafe, other eats and plenty of options just 2+ blocks over. When crossing 6th Ave on 26th Street, you can see World Trade building on clear day. Off 7th, lots of shops and some dining options. That's just what you have when you turn the corner....
Tried to take advantage of rooftop bar/dining when it didn't rain on Saturday or Memorial Weekend, but it was closed due to private party. A few blocks down at 23rd Street seems to get most of the subway lines, just depends on which train dictates which Ave. to catch it on. Taxis also easy to catch here as Holiday Inn and another hotel also on 26th.
RARE dining for appetizers and desserts was good. Chelsea shopping and dining near though we did not stop by (but saw how close from the taxi taken on rainy evenings). Google map how close it is to other locales. My teenager daughter and I walked all the way up to Rockerfeller even with no issue. Loved loved passing thru Madison Square a couple times, sitting on bench with either view of Flatiron or Empire State bldg. Bike rental location just off Madison Square if you are into biking thru city.
Area is more low-key ("less crowded") than the Times Square area which is a plus!
- trendy but simple decor, comfy & clean bed
- standard room (for price I don't care), no view. It's NYC and a holiday weekend
- rarely if ever did we hear neighboring rooms and based on door placement, we are likely very close in proximity
- bathroom size decent and clean. Door to restroom just inches away from edge of the bed... that's how cozy room is.
- closet is tiny, but enough to hold 8 -12 hangers. I travel 25% of year so I know how to pack clothing for multiple outfits
- lobby staff... pretty bare but I'm going to NY to see the city and not be pampered by staff. Spend the $$$$ if you want that experience :)
