Maybe it's the novelty of it. But this tiny roomed hotel was really appealing to us. We had the king room which is much smaller, than the double queens. Shoe-box small. Barely wider and deeper than the bed small. But, the decor and built- in furniture in the room was so clever. The bathroom was very nice. And, the compact but efficient design was impressive.
The location, although busy, was awesome. Again, my emotions may be taking over but walking across the street to spend the entire day ay Macy's, priceless! There are a few restaurants/pubs on the street. A trendy burger place on the corner and a good deli with a huge variety on the opposite corner near Empire. A big Starbucks not far. It was a close walk to Times Square to pick up a bus tour.
I agree that the attitude of the staff was outstanding. You can tell when customer service is just part of their DNA and this hotel exemplifies it.
From a practical standpoint, if you are a family with kids, and like a king, this room will not work. But why ruin it? "Sorry kids, mommy and daddy have to head back to New York...."
