I guess the high rating is because of the location, which was convenient to the theater district. I liked the concierge staff and the bed was comfy, but the room was austere, like a Motel 6 in need of renovation. And LOUD traffic all night. Fortunately, that doesn't particularly bother me, but there was a loud thumping all night the first night, like maybe drums from a nearby band, and that did interfere with my sleep. I heard another guest discussing the room with the desk clerk, and I inferred there were nicer rooms, but mine was not one of them. I did have a small kitchenette, so if I had been so inclined, I could have cooked in my room and saved on eating out.
The neighborhood was just on the edge of an area where guidebooks recommend not walking at night (8th and 42nd).
I'll pay a little more next time, to stay somewhere a little nicer next time.
