We were looking for a hotel that was affordable and relatively close to Madison Square Garden and the theater district. This one fit the bill perfectly. It's right across the street from MSG and within walking distance of a lot of the city's attractions. The hotel offers valet parking, and their special offers can include free parking if you drive in to the city. They also offer advance check-in. Our check in time was at 3, we arrived at 1 and our room was ready.However, you still have to stop at the front desk for your key of course, and their lines can be a bit long and slow moving. They do have express check-out though, so you can avoid the lines if your check-out is straight forward.
The room itself was pretty tiny, but I guess this is to be expected in New York. It was also very quaint, which was nice. We only stayed one night and all in all it was a comfortable stay.
Even though we were on the nineteenth floor, the city noise was quite loud. The hotel does offer complimentary ear plugs which were qite useful.
