I had to stay here for an extended period of time and I was very comfortable. The views from the room were nice, looking out onto the busy streets and office buildings. Some would prefer other views but this is what I wanted.
Food - I ate at Herb n' Kitchen just about everyday. I was often in a hurry, rushing to work, rushing home (the hotel) and so it did the trick, though they did get my order wrong a few times and I just didn't want to go through the trouble of re-ordering and sending back items. So be very clear when you place your inroom dining orders. It's not brought in with the regular tray and table, etc. It's brought in a large paper bag and everything is wrapped in appropriate paper and containers depending on what's hot and what's cold. It is not 24 hours either so you have to be strategic in ordering or else you'll have to go to a vendor on the street for something quick...which is actually pretty darn good too.
Staff - You know, you hear these horror stories about how rude people are in NYC. I haven't experienced that at ANY time, in fact, they are nicer than people in most cities I visit/work in. I found the staff to be extremely kind, from the housekeeping crew to the front desk. People smiled for the most part and if they didn't they did eventually after a few 'thank yous' and tips where appropriate. I'm not saying throw money to get people to be nice but showing appreciation via word or deed does help...
Cleanliness - it's clean.
Location: perfect for me...was in walking distance of most places I needed to go to... there's a taxi waiting area right out front, they seemed to be hailing them all day for guests. We used this service once, all other times I used UBER.
Social Media - I used this to speak with the hotel on multiple occasions. They were friendly and followed me back on Twitter. We chatted a bit. It gave a more human experience to the hotel and I do plan to make this my main hotel for NYC.
Price: It was a heck of a lot cheaper than the ones I've stayed in prior...100s less and I got more than I paid for.
Will I stay again - yes, if I don't end up buying a place I'll just stay here.
