stayed in Best Western Plaza over the Christmas period and found the hotel a good alternative to more expensive Manhattan hotels. Location is great, a block away from metro station and 3stops takes you to Central Park, 4 stops to Rockefeller Center.
The hotel itself wasn't of great quality, but the room was pretty good, good size, clean and comfortable.
Staff at reception was helpful, had no problem changing a room, when had issue with the first one.
Two let downs of this hotel is breakfast and WiFi.
The breakfast place is very small, only have about 10 tables for a hotel of 10 floors, so you will have to wait when hotel is busy.
The selection is not too varied,only have pastries, doughnuts, pancake and a scrambled eggs, but no cheese or a bit of cold meat.
You get the code for WiFi at checkin, but the network is full quite often, leaving you without connection.
Overall you get what you paying for, nothing fancy, but convenient stay close to the action.
Oh and if you lucky, you got a view to Manhattan from the room.
