This is a clean and groovy spot. Feels quite European with modular seating in lobby, graffiti art on screens and walls and slightly surly front desk staff. Nice to have two bar/restaurants neatly attached, similarly hip and easy to access. Rooms are more than fine if you prepare yourself for large sleeper car on a train; but they did miss the boat by not having a bed that folds into the wall to create better seating space when not sleeping (otherwise, the bed is literally your living room).
I agree with others that this is a solid value for NYC. Esp. if you want to be mid-town. There are other similarly priced and more spacious rooms on the Upper West Side (such as Beacon or Milburn) but you're not as close to tourist action. I will definitely be back if I need a decently priced spot on East Side.
