My husband and I stayed at this hotel from September 1 through the 6 to attend the US Open, and to do some of the typcial New York touristy stuff. The hotel is very modern and very clean. Overall, the staff appeared to be attentive. We had a little trouble with the safe in our room, and both times we... More

We stayed at this hotel from Sept 18-21 (3 Nights). We called the night before to ensure we could have an early booking and were advised that there would not be a problem. When we arrived at the hotel we were told by the front staff that our room was available however we would have to pay 40.00 for early... More

A friend and I with our two daughters stayed at this hotel during NY fashion week. The hotel staff was great! Upon our early arrival we couldn't get into the room so they allowed us to store our luggage while we ran to some appointments. It is a very close walk to the subway and about a 10 min subway...

Please note - I'd only recommend this hotel to a friend that was looking for a really affordable, clean hotel that was close to the subway close to central New York. It's not a hotel for a lovely New York vacation for middle aged couples. When we pulled up, we were a little concerned - it's close to many automotive... More

We were there for 4 days and besides the free continental breakfast which was average at best and the neigborhood which his a bit suspect we have nothing to complain about this hotel. We were at the most a 4 minute walk to the subway station which brings us directly to Times Square in 10 minutes. The rooms were small... More

New hotel. It is clean. The rooms are ok. Only 50 meters from the subway. Two stops to center Manhatten. Free Parking!!!!!. Breakfast is miserable. Take your stuff to your room and eat in peace.

The hotel advertisings that it has parking, but it is a lie. It has 7 spaces for over 100 rooms, meaning in fact you have to park on the street - and no parking 7 to 10 am and 4 to 7 pm. So it pretty much ruins your vacation. The office is filthy, one elevataor was filled with full... More

I chose this hotel because i traveled on my own. Can't say i regret my decision. The room was very clean. Just perfect if you travel alone or just a couple (room is a bit tight). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Subway was just 5 minutes by walking and you could be in manhattan in just about 10 minutes.... More

I almost changed hotels from reading many mixed reviews. I must say I am very happy I stayed with this hotel. It was very clean and accommodating. As soon as you check in there are various maps to help you get to the attractions. I really enjoyed having a refrigerator in the room and free wi-fi. There is also a... More
