We spent 4 days in New York and wanted to stay in an area with character- Blue Moon in Lower Eastside is perfect.
The hotel is friendly and staff are very helpful (a particular thanks to Paul!) and the rooms are full of character. NIce breakfast with fresh bagels from round the corner. You're only blocks away from Chinese, Vietnamese residential and market/ restaurant areas and Little Italy's only a couple of blocks further away. 5min walk to train to take you to Times Square or wherever....half hour walk to Finance/World Trade areas or Greenwich Village/Soho. You really are in an exciting area but still close to cosmopolitan stuff.
If you're interested in the history of successive waves of immigration, check out the Tenement Museum which is literally next door. Guides will take to round tenement flats just as they would have been in 1880, 1930, etc.
Give up those chain hotels and try as slice of life in real New York.
