First, we were surprised to find a New York hotel for around $100.00 and didn't expect much, although the photos and reviews were good. When we arrived, we were very pleasantly surprised: the lobby and our reception were great, the room was huge; however, we need to note that we'd requested an accessible room and it had about three - four feet more width than a regular room. There was plenty of space in the closet and cabinets for our personal items, as well as enough flat space for our luggage.
The location was also great for us since it was less than two blocks from the subway.
Because it was an accessible bathroom, there wasn't counter space, so Tom, the manager, brought up a table and placed it in the bathroom for us.
The breakfast was great, although note that the food is taken away at precisely the closing time.
We didn't use the exercise room or computer area but they both seemed better than "typical."
Tom and all the staff were exceedingly helpful and friendly.
