My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights right after Christmas. The room was clean and quiet. The hotel staff was very friendly. The location is fantastic. It is just a block and a half from Grand Central Terminal, which connects you to subway trains that can take you anywhere you need to go. You also can walk to many attractions, because it is in midtown. At the same time, you are away from the chaos of Times Square. The breakfast was a typical breakfast for this type of hotel, but it was enough to start the day and save some money.
The cons are what you would expect -- the room was expensive (although fairly priced given the other NY options) and small (the king bed dominated our room). I don't fault the hotel for either of those aspects -- you just need to be prepared for it if you are traveling to NY from out of town. If you expect a typical hotel room, you will be disappointed.
The breakfast line and the wait for the elevator got a little long during peak times, but that was a minor inconvenience. Again, you just need to expect things like that when you travel to NY.
Overall, we would definitely stay here again.
