We usually stay in the Theater District, however, our stay at this hotel on the West Side proved to be a great choice and we would definitely stay there again. The neighborhood is very safe and a convenient walk to the 72nd street subway. The hotel desk even sells subway tickets.
The pros: spotless and quiet room, efficient kitchenette with Keurig machine, tea kettle, dish detergent and washrag, plenty of lamps, power cord for charging electronics, free Wi-Fi, room-darkening curtains, plenty of hangars in nice-size closet, full-length mirror, generous toiletries and towels. Dishes left in the sink will be replaced with clean ones each day by housekeeping.
The hotel was sold out but we never had to wait more that 2-3 minutes for the elevator. The Beacon Bar has 50% off happy hour from 3-7pm every day and you can order lite snacks.
A few cons: the mattresses could have been firmer and there is no exhaust fan in the small bathroom.
The diner, Viand, right next to the hotel is convenient for carryout, delivery or eating-in. As many have said, the Fairway Market across the street is a gourmet mecca. There are several reasonable restaurants nearby which are described in a directory in the hotel room.
