An excellent hotel if you would like to stay close to Manhattan, but not paying the Manhattan prices, especially around Christmas and New Year! The hotel is clean, staff very helpful, view over Manhattan skyline - a dream. Best quality rib-eye in the restaurant! I would also like to thank the manager for helping us book a room on the upper floors, with Manhattan view - it was just great! I would stay in this hotel every time we get to NYC!!! Subways is 1 minute away, there is a greek eatery on the corner with delightful (if somewhat heavy) breakfast and even if the area doesn't look much at the beginning, we have never felt unsafe!
