My boyfriend and I stayed at the Verve for 3 nights and we weren't disappointed. The price is a fraction of the cost of a hotel in Manhattan and you can travel into Times Square in about 15 mins on the Subway. Both 39 Ave and Queensboro Plaza are 5 mins away.
We were pleased with the room. It was basis but comfortable and had all the things we needed including a comfy bed. At first we thought we may have issues sleeping with the subway so close you can hear the trains, but we were so exhausted from our day trips that we never had any sleep issues.
The bonus at the Verve is definately the breakfast and free 24 tea and coffee. Most places are room only however the Verve served an adequate breakfast. The variety was limited, but we were very happy with the choice of cereal, toast, bagels and waffles. There was also a different kind of egg each day (boiled, scrambled) and turkey sausage, but we didn't try this.
The area is fine, we often returned back late and never felt worried. They also have a gym, games room and free laundry room.
We would definitely stay at the Verve again when returning to New York because of the value for money, proximity to NYC and good serviced provided by the staff. Thank you!
