My wife and I and our four-year-old stayed here recently for two nights. We loved the modern decor in the clean rooms, and really appreciated the friendliness of all the staff members we met. We found the price reasonable for an upper floor room, which was quieter than a lower floor would have been. The neighborhood is an interesting mix of new and old, and it's walking distance to the High Line as well as Greenwich Village. Overall, this was a great home base for exploring everything from the 9/11 Memorial up to Midtown - cabs are quick to lower and midtown, and there are several subway lines within walking distance.
While we'd agree with those who said the rooms are on the smaller side, and that views can be nonexistent unless you ask for a view room (water towers were out our window) - we wouldn't complain: these were pretty much expected for us in a mid-priced NYC hotel.
The only real criticism we walked away with was not being able to visit the rooftop bar/deck. The rooftop was one of the reasons we booked this location - however, we found not only is it off limits to anyone under 21 during prime bar hours after 5 PM (understandable), it is also completely off limits during the day, to everyone. In other words: non-guests who are 21 can walk in the front door and go to the roof any time after 5, but families with under-21 kids can NEVER go to the roof, night or day. This felt very unfair - though the staff who told us about this policy were nice about it.
We would have been so thrilled if we had been allowed to go up to the room in the morning for coffee, or for lunch, etc. - but had to tell our four-year-old we weren't allowed. This policy needs to be rethought - if we knew we'd be allowed on the roof during the day, we'd stay at this location again in a heartbeat.
