This was a really clean hotel that was a 15 minute subway ride from Times Square. It was right around the corner from a subway station. The neighborhood felt kind of run down, but honestly it felt like nobody would bother me if I didn't bother them. I don't know how I would have felt if I was by myself as a female in that neighborhood, but I was good with my husband there. I have, in the past, spent more money on a hotel in New York while sharing a bathroom. I got two nights for $159 - not bad. This felt more like a little piece of home once you are inside the hotel. NYC is always a compromise, you can spend a lot of money for a nice hotel or you can shop around for a good deal. This was the best deal yet. I would recommend to anyone except maybe a female traveling along and that is only because I never travel alone anyway.
