The hotel is brand new. Neighbourhood doesn't look great, but it's safe. It's a good place to stay when you travel to NY, because prices are lower than manhattan. Subway is just a block away and after 3 stops you're on madison avenue! Very helpfull and nice staff. Rooms are spacious with large windows, and if you get a room on the good side, the view on the city is really amazing, especially by night! Excellent free wifi in all the hotel. Continental breakfast is ok, but if want to go "large" you can have whatever you want!
No good restaurants next to the hotel, so have a bite in the city! If you want to rent a car you'll find a enterprise rent a car a few blocks away..
