Stayed for a long weekend. Couldn't beat the location 2 min walk to Columbus Circle, Central Park, MOMA etc....Discounted parking right across the street. The rooms are a decent size. We were on the first floor, kind of a cave, but not bad. Free wifi and coffee.

I stayed here for a week in August. There are a couple of minuses with the Da Vinci, but they are well and truly outweighed by the pluses. The location is brilliant; close to Central Park and Broadway and with many restaurants close at hand, as well as many subway stations. The Italian restaurant below the hotel (where you get... More

I had walked past this hotel many times and never noticed it. However, I was searching online for a reasonably priced hotel in midtown Manhattan and found a terrific price for this hotel. The reviews were good so I booked it. The price was 35% less than a hotel around the corner that I bought with a Travelzoo coupon and... More

First who is the hotel managment is unclear, I had to contact the Secretary of state in Albany to find out since the manager of the hotel lied about it. Second, after telling both the hotel manager and the person who worked in the front desk no to use my card SINCE I PAID IN CASH, THEY USED MY CARD... More

This was one of three NYC hotels I stayed in, during three stopovers in NYC during a nine-week vacation in USA, Bermuda and Canada. I stayed here for 4 nights; the first night was not great; some room issues including NO wardrobe, no ability to adjust or open blinds, and no room information/folder, or telephone call instructions/ message retrieval etc....

Stayed 4 nights in late June (booked mid-April). Travelled as a couple. Now the room was tiny, the carpet was dirty & the air conditioner was noisy (it also worked very well given the 80 degree temps). However, I chose this hotel for the following reasons (in order): Private bathroom Price Location Free wifi Queen bed Mini fridge Free breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for three nights, and while the location was great many other things were much less than stellar. The great part is that you are located in the heart of midtown walking distance to so many great places including delicious restaurants! The things that pretty much sucked were the following: * broken toilet... More

Hotel's entrance is unimpressive and not marked clearly - you have to really crane your neck up above the canopy to see the name from the sidewalk. I only knew because I asked someone who was working at the restaurant below. Check-in was efficient and the front desk clerk was very informative about quirky things like the hard-to-find A/C switch,... More
