Stayed at this nice hotel for two nights for a fun weekend in the City. Easy, easy, easy to get to the subway and into Manhattan! The hotel staff would even walk outside with us and point out the directions to the subway for us - only blocks from the hotel. Easily walkable. Felt very safe (was traveling with a 15 year old).
Hotel arranged for private transportation from & back to the airport for only $25 each way. Well worth it for us. Very courteous & helpful staff at the hotel. Check in was hassle free. Booked online and got a great rate thru Choices Hotels web site. Our room was clean, fairly large, comfortable bed, quiet, and had a bit of a view of Manhattan. Held our bags for us on our last day till it was time to go to the airport at no charge. Nice touch.
Breakfast was not our cup of tea - two hot entrees each day - both days, they offered turkey sausage. In addition, the first day they offered egg whites (which were yellow) and the second day, hard boiled eggs floating in hot water. They also provided your usual waffles, fruit, cereals, etc.
I would recommend this hotel as an option if you're looking for a clean & safe place to stay at much better rates than if you stayed in Manhattan. Very willing to help you with anything you need.
