Stayed here from 6/16 to 6/23/2013. Loved this hotel. We had a two room suite on the 6th floor, tons of room. Washer and dryer usage was free (just bring your own soap or they sell you some for $1), breakfast was included, pool table, ping pong, fitness room, this place was great. Breakfast was OK, my husband preferred bacon and eggs so we ate out, if you like turkey sausage or making your own waffle then it's good. I enjoyed having access to hot tea 24 hours a day. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Location is great, five minute walk to the subway, 10 minutes on the train and you are in Manhattan. We bought a 7 day metro pass for $31 and used it every day, went all over New York City. We found a great spaghetti dinner for $7 at a local diner - under the subway train tracks - definitely not fancy but good food - Joe's Pizzeria on 36th Avenue. Good breakfast at the diner by the 39th Avenue train station. Next time we come to New York we want to stay at the Verve again.
