Hotel location was good. There were nearby convenience store and diner. It's near to one of NYPD centre so there's lots of NYPD presence that makes you feel safer. It's a 10-15mins walk to Times Square, Port Authority where the metro subways are. I'd recommend using a shared airport shuttle (USD44/pax) to the hotel if you have large bags.
We booked the standard double room that has 2 double beds which can fit 4 people but it would probably be crowded. Since there was only 2 of us, each of us got a double bed which was great. Room has a medium sized fridge, microwave but no kettle or coffee maker. Drinking glasses was provided but no cups. Luckily we brought our own instant coffee & hot choc which we made in the microwave using recycled starbucks paper cups. Hotel doesn't have breakfast but there's a diner just next door or you can heat up breakfast in the microwave. Wifi is payable at USD6/day.
Room was dated but clean, bed was comfy and bathroom was a bit narrow but we were ok with it cause water pressure and hot water were good. We didn't see any air-condition but since it's winter we didn't mind. The heater works find although noisy if it's fan was switched on. We just left the heater on with fan off when we slept.
Check-in was easy, and hotel staff were helpful and friendly. They even provided recommendations for places to eat and helped us with arrangement for the shared airport shuttle to pick us up at the hotel. Since our return flight was at night, we stored our bags at the hotel and came back later to collect our bags and take the airport shuttle.
All in all it's a good place for a short stay in cold weather.
Easy to get to. Easy to park, right next to the hotel. Staff was very good and kind. We take a black light everywhere we go and scanned the room and it not only looked clean but it was clean!! the bed was comfortable. Never waited long for the elevator. Check out was easy also. One thing you must remember. This hotel has NO air conditioning. Remember if your going in the summer. The windows to open. The rooms are of larger than most NYC rooms. The water was hot and the showers gave you a good amount of water pressure. Overall this was one of the better hotels I have stayed in NYC>
