We stayed in this hotel for a week in September 2012.
We had a standard Queen room. It's extremely small - the smallest hotel room we've ever stayed in. We didn't unpack our suitcases because of this, and even then, there was no room for suitcases on the floor without tripping all over them. Our room had a huge TV but it wasn't digital and the picture was spotty at best. WiFi connectivity on the third floor was terrible. The connection kept dropping out. The bathroom is very good, and the shower in particular is excellent. One major downfall was the bed. One night the sheets came untucked overnight, and there were stains on the mattress, which wasn't pleasant.
The hotel staff's attitude was very variable. Some were extremely helpful, and others the opposite. They serve a complimentary breakfast every morning, containing cereal, waffles, toast, coffee, and orange juice. They also have a fitness room and limited laundry facilities (one washer and one drier, and you need your own detergent).
They have car parking but too few spaces for the number of rooms. You may be lucky and get a space, but other times you may find yourself parking on the road.
The subway station is about a twenty-minute walk from the hotel, and you can get the number 7 into the city.
The actual area the hotel's in isn't the nicest. We didn't particularly feel safe walking back from the subway station at night. There are gangs of kids around and shoes hanging from telephone lines.
We probably wouldn't stay there again. If you book the hotel on a budget, what you get for your money isn't terrible, and if you have a short stay in New York it's worth considering. But if we visited New York again, we'd choose a different hotel, even if we had to pay slightly more.
