We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were large. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and provided all of the essentials for a start to a day of touring. We enjoyed that the hotel was in China Town and very near Little Italy and Greenwich Village, all walkable and... More

The folks at the hotel were very helpful and accommodating and the room was always clean and tidy! The only thing is that there are no great breakfast spots within a couple of blocks, but if you don't mind walking for 10 minutes there are a couple of good ones. Yet the continental breakfasts at the hotel are enough to... More

The hotel is good. I spent just one night. Its pretty decent. Breakfast was include. The room was very clean and comfortable. Love the shower!! walking distance to the subway!!!! Totally worth it. I recommend. The only downside is the area around... not too cute, but it didn't bother me.

Hello, We stayed at the hotel during pride weekend and we liked the place overall. It's not high-end but it's located close to good restaurants, bars and not far from Tribeca. We would stay again if we could get a good rate -- our reservation was last minute so we overpaid, considerably. Pretty decent breakfast, overall.

I was meeting up for a G Adventures trip from New York to New Orleans which would include a lot of camping. I would arrive in New York a few days before the trip was to begin, so I thought I would stay at a higher quality hotel in order to have a few luxuries before the trip began. The... More

Our second last day (Saturday July 12) in NYC, we received a voicemail message left at around 1:20pm at our hotel room from the front desk that they had received a complaint that was accusing us that we were smoking or smell of smoke coming from our room. We couldn't believe this as my wife and I have never smoked... More

My sincere apologies about the terrible way you had to end your stay with us. That is certainly unacceptable. Although we do take smoking in our 100% non-smoking hotel very serious, your experience was not handled properly. I have addressed it with my entire team and we have come to an agreement how to better handle this in the future.... More

I brought a group of 14 to the hotel last week. It was quiet, secure, and clean. Best of all were the front desk staff who helped everyone find their way around. Breakfast was the basic chain hotel breakfast but with good coffee and an outdoor seating area that was quiet and secluded. I would stay again if coming to... More

The area is bustling with "Little Italy" and "Chinatown" shoppers by day and the area is quite congested. However this hotel, , whose lobby is actually a couple floors up, provided an oasis of quiet and organization. The room was fine with features one expects--in room coffee maker, etc. but the included breakfast was better than most places. An added... More
