The hotel is perfectly situated for the Javits Centre which is just five minutes walk away. The staff are friendly and helpful. Room service is efficient and tidy. The wifi works well by hotel standards.
The rooms are small, you can't properly open the wardrobe door because it hits the bed. The hotel is right next to a railway track and the trains are very audible even with the windows closed. The trains would not be so bad if they didn't always blow the horn or ring the bell just as they pass the hotel. Two rooms on each floor are adjacent to the lift shaft, adding to the noise.
There is very little seating for breakfast, a lot of people grab something and take it too their room at busy times. The continental breakfast is very American, I spotted plenty of "muffins" and rather hard bagels but no croissants or bread rolls. There is only "plastic" cheese and no sliced meat but the scrambled eggs were good and there were always cornflakes and fruit.
All in all ok if you don't mind the noise of the trains and are happy to buy breakfast at a diner, which is an important part of the NY experience anyway.
