We chose this hotel because of its location and price. The hotel being brand new was a big plus. The rooms are small, typical for New York, but very clean. Not really enough space for eating in your, so plan accordingly. Sal's Pizza is a block away, a little north on 10th Ave, very small but really good. Sombrero on 48th near 8th is also good if you're looking for Mexican.
The hotel staff was very friendly, and there was fresh coffee at the front desk every time I walked by. Also an occasion cookie. The lobby is fairly small so the free breakfast is a bit crazy. I find this to be typical of Choice properties, but this is a little more crowded than most.
We had to wait on the elevator a couple of times, but the hotel has a very small footprint, about 10 rooms per floor, so there really isn't room for two. It is fairly noisy, as stated in other reviews, but not unbearable. Ice and vending on the bottom floor marked "C" (cellar?)
We were here to shop in Times Square and visit Rockefeller Plaza, which is only a mile away. This hotel was perfect for doing both. The neighborhood is mostly apartments, with small businesses to the west. We felt safe walking the streets, even at night. Hell's Kitchen Park is a block east of the hotel, and very similar to the one in the movie, Daredevil. Nice place for the kids to blow off a little steam.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to New York, and this hotel was a big part of it. We'll be back on our next trip to NYC.
