I wrote the review titled "Confirm , Confirm , Confirm etc " and let me just say I was pleasantly surprised when I started my actual stay at the hotel , it was excellent for the price . The staff was helpful and we were charged accurately but we did go through Expedia which I highly recommend when booking a hotel. The rooms are very nice , clean and comfortable . And don't let the bad reviews of the area being bad or scary influence you , they almost got to me when I read them on here and let me just say the area was just fine nobody ever bothered us and the people in the local stores were nice , we never once took a cab and arrived back to our hotel at 2 am in the morning many times never having a single problem , the negative reviews are just that negative and narrow minded in my opinion yes there is a housing project near by but more a less its just a massive apartment by the looks of it , I was never scared . People can get easily mislead because it isnt a modern or very developed area . The access to the train was the best part it was literally was a 3 to 5 minute walk . The hotel offered a continental breakfast which was pretty decent for being free , but you must wake up fairly early to get in on the good food eggs , pancakes and croissants and muffins ( at like 7am to 8 am ) or you are just stuck with bananas and juice, it also get pretty crowded but you can take your food to your room. Beware not to get the room on the first floor next to the gym and the breakfast room it is very loud in the early mornings , thats were we stayed but we just put up with it , but if you can avoid the entire 1st floor I suggest you do so. The staff was really helpful in assisting my boyfriend how to get places via train. The view wasn't the best but your in New York your there to be out and about . With all this being said I highly recommend this hotel its a great deal , clean, comfortable and very convenient , the location is prime ! I take back my scepticism and past review all the way , this hotel really came through for us . I hope it will do the same for you. I would definitely stay there again.
