I want to start by saying I would definitely stay at this hotel again. The points I am going to make are observations rather than criticisms.
We chose this hotel specifically because it is reasonably new and we were pleased to find it is not yet rough around the edges. When we first arrived we were a bit taken aback by the smallness of the room but I understand that this is usual in NYC. It did not affect our stay at all so unless a large room is important to you this would not be a problem.
In contrast to the small room the shower was lovely and big. It was powerful and we always had plenty of hot water. The hairdryer was brilliant too - better than my own!
The room only has a coffee maker. No kettle so no freshly boiled water for a ‘proper’ cup of tea. There were urns of coffee and hot water in the foyer by the lift. A welcome touch after a hard days sight seeing as we could grab a drink on the way to our room.
The complimentary breakfast was fine. There was something for everyone. We didn’t use the bar.
Finally I would say that I expected a view of the Empire State Building. We had a view of the street. This was entirely my fault for not researching this properly beforehand. The street was noisy but that was no problem to us.
