We stayed at Hotel Vetiver during our NY visit in July. We picked the hotel mostly because it was a value hotel, budget-friendly in terms of NYC without compromising from quality. It was indeed so, I cannot complain about anything as all was clearly indicated in hotel website and the reviews we checked prior to booking. The edifice is renewed, nice, comfortable and cosy, beds very comfortable, the rooms quite good-looking. The breakfast was ok, not great but no problem.. The staff was friendly. The neighbourhood was not very pleasant in fact, but conveniently close to the metro station which took you downtown in 10 minutes. We did not encounter any difficulties or problems, but if you are planning to enjoy the night in NY and return to the hotel late, this may be an awkward choice, for it did not feel 100% safe in late hours (though we witnessed or encountered nothing unpleasant); and more importantly, the trains function weirdly after a certain hour and you might easily find yourself in an unknown area. Otherwise, this is a good option not to spend too much and enjoy the same standards.
