I spent 5 nights at Hotel Vetiver in March 2013 including the St Patrick’s Day weekend.
This hotel is the best value hotel that I know of in NYC. Being located in a safe neighbourhood and so close to the subway station it is a much better option than staying in Manhattan if you want to save money.
My room, which was away from the street, was clean, spacious and the bathroom was of a decent size as well. Located in the room were a fridge, stove top, DVD and LCD TV. The bed was large and comfortable and there nothing compact about the wardrobe. I accessed the internet everyday of my stay and have no complaint about the speed of the wi fi. As a bonus I also had a view of the Manhattan skyline. The continental breakfast exceeded my expectations with a wide variety to choose from, including bread, bagels, jams, fruit, yoghurt, cereals, jams, cakes, juice coffee and tea.
From the time I checked in until checkout I found all staff that I came across to be friendly, helpful and courteous.
If I have to have a grumble about some things they are that the breakfast room is quite small and there were times when it was difficult to get a table. The other is that with only one lift there can be a bit of a wait at times. Minor issues really.
Next time I am in NYC, I will be back, here!
