Hotel Metro is a 'small' hotel for New York (only 12 floors!) and it has a lot of excellent qualities. It is perfectly located to discover New York: next door to Macy's and to a subway station, it is in walking distance of Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, Madison Square Garden and Penn Station. The hotel is stylishly decorated in Beaux-Arts and there's music from the 1940s and 1950s in the hall and in the breakfast room (even if most guests wear shorts and T Shirts!). Our bedroom (premier queen) was not very big but it was a haven to come back to every day (we stayed for 7 nights which is perfect to discover NYC). The air condition works very well, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom small but pleasant and stylish too. The hotel is spotlessly clean and our room was done everyday by attentive staff. Everything we needed was in our bedroom: iron, iron board, safe, coffee machine, ipod dock, umbrella, good internet connection.
Breakfast is good and varied (continental, but muffins are so big they can feed two people!) and there's a concierge called Jeff who is very helpful, friendly and efficient.
The only little setback we had was a rather cold and distant check-in (after travelling for 12 hours you expect a little warmth). I also personally found it dismaying that we were given disposable plates and cutlery at breakfast. It doesn't help to make NYC a green city, the amount of waste on the pavements piling up every evening is plain shocking to an environmentally-minded person.
Having said that, Hotel Metro is definitely a place to recommend, compatible with a honeymoon or a family trip.
