This is a nice new hotel, with very reasonably priced rooms. The room I had gave a partial view of the Manhattan skyline. Those rooms are on the rear west corner of the building. The staff are very helpful. I did not get the breakfast, as the eating area was full every morning, as of is quite small. I was... More

We got a terrific price on a last minute trip through booking.com (an offshoot of priceline.com). I stayed here with my teenage daughter for 6 days, and it was great to be near enough to the subway (a block and a half) to get to about anywhere in Manhattan, and to transfer to and from JFK with light luggage on...

This hotel is an excellent choice in NYC. There is a subway station just one block from the hotel, and you get to Manhattan in 10 minutes. Neighborhood is not great but I didn't feel me scared even walking from subway to hotel late night. A free breakfest (simple but good) and wifi internet are available. But if you are... More

My wife and I visited Manhattan on a 3 day trip in May. We wanted to live close to Manhattan. All hotels in Manhattan were so freaking expensive that we had to look elsewhere, either in New Jersey or in Long Island city. Our criteria was 1. Easy access to subway with not more than 10 mins to Manhattan 2.... More

The room was quite nice and clean - the beds very good. The rooms towads the Manhattan side are very quiet for New York. It is far less expensive to stay here than in Manhattan even though the Subway ride takes only about 10/15 minutes to Rockefeller Center or 42nd street/6th Ave. The breakfast is not interesting at all -...

If you are looking for a cheap stay close to ny, this hotel is ok I guess. But if you are looking for a place which is close to manhatten and you can park your car as well, forget about it. Even though the website says that it provides free parking space, in reality there were only 6 places and... More

The good: Free parking (though only about 20-30 spaces and a very small and awkward garage to get in and out), great front desk service, free internet, close to train into NYC, breakfast included. What could be better: shower did not work even though left a message to hotel to fix. All in all, OK stay and good value compared... More

This hotel is a terrific value with an excellent location for easy access into Manhatten or anywhere else in the city. The staff is friendly and professional. However, skip the concierge. The first one we ecountered was rude and the second one was useless.

This hotel was great for the price.The breakfast was good, you can not expect the breakfast area to be empty all the time , so there are other places, such as your room etc. But when it is complimentary one really cant complain. The only downside to this hotel is location, if you want to have a little down time,... More

Nice room, great view of Manhattan, comfortable beds and pillows. Wi Fi always available. Very close to Subway Station F, 2 minutes walking, and just some few stops away from Rockerfeller Center and Time Square. The neighborhood is not beautiful, but for the price we paid, we were happy. I went with my husband and kids and we don´t have... More
