Hotel is a really good location. Easy walk to flatiron, empire state, lots of bars and restaurants and subway for everything else.
The room was adequate. Bed was OK, clearly not new, but fine. Room was a god size and shared bathrooms were clean 99% of the time and only had to wait to shower once. We didn't have bed bugs which I was expecting as a give in so that was a good thing! T.he room was really hot and stuffy. We had to turn the fan on which was painfully loud, but i think this is just the nature of the age of the building.
We were delayed in our arrival with snow storms and trying to change our booking was a nightmare! we booked through Hotels.com and had called and emailed them, called the hotel direct and then stayed on the phone while hotels.com called to change the booking and they still hadn't updated it/didn't get it when we arrived three days later, so not a great start. Service never wowed us.
If you are looking for accommodation on Manhattan on a budget from what we could find it was the best you could get. If you are looking for a more comfortable US trip go to San Diego. When we were delayed in LA with the snow we rented a car and went there and it was really god value for money. For the same price we stayed at Hotel Del Coronado which was amazing!
