“What a gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

What a lovely hotel. Staff at the front desk were very pleasant and helpfull. They give us some good advice where to eat in Chinatown (100 Allenstreet!). They have a lot of information and tips available and they are always in for a nice chat.
The rooms are very small. But hey, you are in NYC, what do you do in your room....sleeping and shower. And the beds and shower are perfect.
They serve a small breakfast that will get you started for the rest of your day.
Close to subway station, in the heart of lovely Chinatown, which is an attraction on it's own.

A very good experience at Howard Johnson. Small rooms as expected in NYC, but very clean. Staff were very very helpful and attentive. Hotel was perfect for travellers who are out all day. Breakfast was also provided, which is a bonus. Not in the finest location ever but great for seeing lower manhattan. Some excellent Chinese restaurants nearby, far better than most I've had in the UK. Thank you!

Good Hotel, pricey like all hotels in Manhattan, good and helpful staff. Breakfast is good, but the breakfast room has limited seating capacity so you should choose your time of taking breakfast strategically, WIFI is medium, possibly depending on location of the room you are in. Rooms are small, but beds are good. Location of the hotel is good for exploring downtown Manhattan on foot.

Pros :
Cleanliness of the rooms and of all the hotel.
Very good breakfast.
Quality of beds.
Metro station (F Line) very close.
(PS : The hotel is in Chinatown)


Cons :
NOTHING important, eventually the price, but that is New York.
The only negative point is that you have to pay for the entire stay already at the reservation.
