We stayed one night at the hotel. Spent the day in Manhattan before getting on the subway. It was a Friday night. I really wanted a glass of wine when we arrived at the hotel. The streets around there were deserted, there were no bars or restaurants within 3 blocks of the hotel. We would've had to get back on the subway to find a wine bar. The area however was more residential than I expected (I thought it was industrial). Hotel was very clean and the price was good.
