after hours of trawling the web to find the combination of affordability, location and decor, we finalised on this one. Having been to NYC before, I had an idea of what to expect.
Upon arrival we were met with courteous staff, a water dispenser at the front desk to parch our thirst from the Taxi journey in. We were a bit early so reception took our bags while the room was readied, with the customary dollar tips handed out everywhere, we went on our way to explore a bit of the theatre district. It is at this point we really appreciated that the location was as good as we hoped. Literally steps away from times square and several metro stops, everything you could possibly want is in reach!
When we came back to the hotel, the room was ready. We were told that there was a cheese and wine reception in the afternoon, and we made our way up to the room. On first appearance the room was good, tidy and a decent size. If your looking for a view, well you will be a bit disappointed, but that is quite the norm in NYC, at least for this price! The shower is great, plenty of power and its still a bit weird to me that there is a TV in the loo! The bed was fantastically comfy, and the window, bar the view, shut out the noise and had blackout curtains, so you could get plenty of rest. The only complaint we have about the room is that there were some creaky old pipes which seemed to rattle in the morning when everyone must have been getting ready. Apart from that, it was a great room.
A sign of their great customer service couldn't be highlighted better than a visit to Del Frisco's. Nearing the end of our meal, which was bumper in size, we were brought over a 7 layer lemon cake, courtesy of the hotel. It was delicious and a great touch that rounded off our stay in this hotel. Would we stay there again, yes probably, I think that in itself speaks volumes.
