Perfect location and a good night's rest - why spend the big bucks elsewhere? Granted, the rooms are not much bigger, and may even be smaller, than cabins on a cruise ship. But the hotel is modern, efficient, clean and comfortable. It has a flat screen TV and FREE Internet in the room. I highlight FREE because several hotels in Manhattan advertise free Internet, but their version of free actually means you have to go to the lobby to get it "free", or pay to have it in your room. The location of the hotel is fantastic - a half block east of Lexington and three blocks south of Grand Central Station (42nd Street). I walked to both Madison Square Garden and Rockefeller Center in 15-20 minutes, and I actually WAITED for a green light (I was in the minority there)!! And, if you're walking in winter, there's a Starbucks seemingly every 50 feet to warm your inner soul!
As for the room itself, there is little storage space, so if you bring a regular-sized suitcase, you'll have to keep clothes in it and shut while using the bed (there is no closet). However, carry-on's will fit under the bed. Bathroom is separated from bedroom by sliding CLEAR glass doors - need I say more?
