We stayed here 4 nights and were very pleased. The front desk staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful every time we walked past. Due to the multitude of dining options throughout the city, we didn't take advantage of the breakfast, but it appeared fresh and plentiful. The complimentary, around-the-clock coffee and filtered water were a welcome offering. Being only 3 blocks from the nearest MTA station was a big plus, (It was only a 15 minute ride into Manhattan) making it far more affordable than staying in downtown. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone seeking an affordable and convenient alternative to staying in Manhattan.
