The worst hotel I've ever stayed in, and I'm 56. Tons of bedbugs, I have photos of them and of my bites and the hotel didn't care. At $190 per night! And then someone tried to break into our room at 4 am. We are still treating my suitcase - if they infest your home, you are screwed. STAY AWAY.

Lets just say that it would have been more comfortable to stay in the airport terminal. The dirtiest place can exist in NYC and other civilized cities. This is that kind of place where people stay for half an hour or less.

In fiction and fantasy, no place as ghastly has ever been imagined. I would rather spend a night in Hades than here. I walked to the hotel from Midtown and as I approached my destination my heart sank as just blocks away I passed the Bowery mission with vagrants and psychopaths muttering to themselves on the street. When I arrived... More

But dont waste your money here. Spend a couple more dollars and get... More

Enjoyed our stay immensely. Be sure to visit the rooftop-what a view! Convenient to the subway, many restaurants and the 9/11 Memorial. We booked through Hotwire and were very satisfied. We would highly recommend this hotel in The Financial District.

Don't expect to have any relaxation here, as it is just for a temporary stay. A single room will cost you more, if you make on-line reservation without a credit card. The first night I had to explain at the reception desk what bedclothes mean to me. I kept thinking to myself all the time about how much I would... More

I booked this hotel for myself 1 night, because my two friends went home earlier than me. I booked a single room and the room was terrible small, like a closet. Also met this creepy guy in the hallway and I didn't felt safe. And the area also felt unsafe. I decided that i couldn't stay there, as a girl... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
