Overall good value in Manhattan. Big room, fantastic central park, Upper East and West side views and safe location if you're a female travelling alone.
When arrived I got smaller room on 12th floor, quite outdated and small, with the view to the yard. I went to ask for upgrade straight away and got it without any problem. Other room was on the 27th floor with park views (just as I originally booked). It was very spacious and clean. Design still a bit outdated, but ok for the price.
I think ordering breakfast once is a good idea, as it is nice to have a meal with a central park view. It costs 40$ and it is way too much, but for one time it's ok.
Beds were comfortable, but if your room is close to the elevator you might here some noise now and then.
Internet is not free, but works good.
If you get a central park view you will probably enjoy your stay. Be prepared that all the services and food in the hotel will be pricey. But in Manhattan there are plenty of places for everyone to have breakfast, dine, use WI-Fi and so on.
