Overall, our family of 4 including 2 teens was extremely pleased with our decision to stay here for 4 nights. We had a room with 2 double beds on the 2nd floor so no view, but that was ok. We felt the room was perfectly spacious and very nicely decorated. I thought the beds were very comfortable with great bedding but they were a little short for my 6"3' husband. Also, the bed frames are wood and we all hit our knees on the corner at least once walking through the room. The bathroom is gorgeous and large-we only had a shower which was fine for us but may be an issue if you need/want a tub. There is also just a small shelf and a medicine cabinet for toiletries-enough space overall if not a bit awkward. The air conditioner worked well but was quite loud, although this proved a positive as it drowned out the noise from people in the halls-the walls are thin. Breakfast was adequate but not great-milk sits out all morning so it's warm by the end of breakfast time and when we went down for coffee around 9 there were no sugar packets but luckily these are also provided in the room along with a personal coffee maker. Only other downside I could see for some, although it didn't bother us, is that there really isn't anywhere to hang clothing up (small rack with 2 hangers by door) and there are just a few drawers in the cabinet that the tv sits on-we were fine living out of our suitcases for a few days. The lobby and guest rooms are gorgeous but the hallways need some work-the tile looks dirty but that's the only part of the hotel that I didn't feel was immaculately clean. Best part about the hotel is the location. 2 minute walk to the 39th St. station and we were in the city in a matter of minutes. Area is a mix of ethnicities, working class, with plenty of convenience stores and places to grab a bite within walking distance. We felt safe and were glad to see more of NY than just Manhattan. Staff at the hotel was also phenomenal and we experienced zero problems while there. Finally, we could have tried to park for free on the street but construction was going on across the street which resulted in some parking restrictions so we parked our car in the garage across the street for $20/night and the peace of mind knowing our vehicle was secure was worth the money.
