As others have noted, the main advantage of the hotel is that it is convenient to a host of Manhattan bound subways. (Actually elevated at the point.) The lobby is not fancy, to say the least. Bare bones, really. Strange people hanging around in it for much of the day apparently using the internet.. The neighborhood is clearly at the early stages of gentrification from low value added industrial. The TV was marginal, but did offer free HBO. The shower was excellent with a steady flow and nice, steady warm water. The hotel had only one elevator, which was used by both the guests and the cleaning staff. Accordingly, it could be very slow. My room had a pleasant view of Midtown Manhattan. The free internet was, surprisingly, excellent with wifi of nearly 30 megs.
I would never seek out this facility, but it's ok if nothing better can be found in Manhattan.
Rooms facing Manhattan offer a nice view.
