This was our second visit, the first being in the newer part of the hotel. This time we were in the older part, which from our room (4108) we had great views of Times Square. The room could do with a update, the furnishings were old, under the TV the minibar had been removed and the bed had hard corners where we constantly hit our legs. But is was clean, and the view down to Times Square unbeatable. Great for few day stay, being in the center of everything and on the Subway. We would stay here again. If you want a more modern room stay in the Newer part of the Hotel.
The location is great for vacationing, sightseeing, and business meetings in midtown. Sadly, that's where the kudos end.
While certainly not dirty, every surface of this hotel seems to be 10+ years old. Lots of cracks, split seems, and worn carpets.
If you're simply looking for a bed in a safe building at a reasonable price, this place may work for you. If you are seeking anything beyond, you can do better.
