We visited New York for 4 days and stayed in this hotel. We paid for a taxi to the hotel and back as we would have never have done it on the metro.
The hotel was clean, tidy and reasonably priced. We were close to the Metro which at $2.50 a trip it was very decent and it also allowed us to come back and forth as much as we please.
We were so happy with this hotel, the only thing that let it down was the wifi which was fine in the lobby but not in the room.
Our room was massive, we had a view of the Empire State which isn't done any justice in photos we have. The bathroom was lovely as was the bed. We know we were lucky with the view but we would definitely visit again.
