We've stayed at the Opera House hotel a couple of times now. While some may be put off because of the location, this is truly a wonderful hotel. About 20 minutes from mid-town Manhattan. Be sure to have your metrocard ready to go through the turnstiles as soon as you get to the station. (There were quite a few of those scammers trying to sell you a "swipe" -- stay away from them.)
Spacious rooms, very clean and comfortable beds. We could not hear the folks in the room next to us during any of our stays (the hotel was sold out both times). The breakfast is a good start and their coffee machine is absolutely the best. Nothing like the hot chocolate in the evening, along with a couple of cookies! The vending machine has the basics. But if you're on your way back to the hotel, stop in the local grocery store for any snacks you might need.
While not technically a complaint, there are a few things that you should be aware of:
There are no hairdryers in the room. Nor are there irons/ironing boards. If you require any of these, you need to make a call downstairs to the front desk. (Good if you think about it before hand, not so good if it's last minute and you're in a rush!) Also, there are none of those plastic laundry bags, which really come in handy for your dirty laundry. (While I understand they may not provide a laundry service, but we always look for those bags to take our laundry home in.)
There are a few restaurants nearby to grab something to eat on your way in if need be. Since we stayed here before, we picked up some goodies and stocked our fridge. Used the microwave to heat something up and all was well.
Bottom line, we will definitely stay here again. We have lots of events in the city and the coziness of this hotel will put it on the top of our list of places to stay.
