The hotel has a unique feel similar to hotels you might find in Tokyo:the room is tiny, but well designed. For example, beneath the bed is a space for luggage. Free wifi was good. There was a desk in the room but minimal space to hang clothes. The bathroom is situated in the room, divided strangely by a sliding glass door. This was fine for me travelling alone but you'd need to know anyone you were sharing with pretty well as the bathroom isn't exactly private! There is a great bar area with comfy chairs and a snack breakfast available for about $3/$4 depending whether you chose croissants or bagels with coffee. On the roof was a bar with great views of the city. The hotel is located close to grand central station and the concierge arranged an efficient shuttle bus for me to travel to Newark for $20. My room was facing the street but I wasn't troubled by any noise although it may be best to ask for a room at the back. All in all, a very pleasant stay.
