Travelled to New York in February with my girlfriend. After reading some of the reviews on here I was a bit concerned, however I can honestly say that we had a brilliant experience!
The hotel is perfectly placed for plenty in sightseeing and is a short enough walk from Penn Station to make it accessible easily from JFK. The price was a bargain too and although we didn't really use any of the facilities at the hotel we found it good value for us.
Found the staff to be polite when we asked them anything too not rude as some people seem to have found. The rooms and hotel itself did feel "tired" but I felt it just added to the character of the place and did not find it to be too much of an issue. If you want the Ritz you have to pay Ritz prices!!
Overall I would recommend the hotel to anyone travelling to New York for a short break and would definitely stay there again.
