We spent a night here during the chaotic Christmas season, and I'm happy to report that it truly was a sanctuary in the midst of the Times Square/Midtown craziness. The location is very convenient--less than a minute to the subway and not much more than that to Times Square--and yet, you don't hear all of the noise or feel all of the hustle and bustle inside the hotel. The staff members were very pleasant and helpful, and they even let us enjoy the buffet breakfast on the day we arrived because we got there so early. The breakfast was very satisfactory--pastries, bagels, cereal, oatmeal, some fruit, scrambled eggs, and real orange juice, good tea selection and coffee.
The room we got (a queen) was quite tiny, but considering it's NYC and we were there to spend most of the day walking, we were perfectly fine with this. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the shower was very decent, so that's all we really needed. I would recommend that they pay some attention to the window treatments in the rooms, though, as a few spots showed some stains.
Overall, we felt the price we got a great value considering the location, the included breakfast buffet, and the quality of the property and staff... especially at the height of the Christmas season. I highly recommend this hotel to others looking for a place in this area.
