I stayed at Z Hotel for over 4 weeks due to my Hurricane Sandy displacement. I had low expectations, but I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean and funky with great views of NYC. The bed was extremely comfortable and I enjoyed the bar downstairs (although I think the prices are far too pricey for what it is at $12). The food was somewhat inedible though and I hope they will work on that. The best part about my stay was the staff. They were friendly, professional and never said no to any request. They often went above and beyond to help me and many of the other guests with various, random requests. For example, just one of the nights during my 4 week stay was fully booked. Instead of leaving me homeless for the night, they found another great hotel in NYC that would take me and my dog, made the reservation (on them) and provided me transportation to and from the hotel. It was very kind and generous. I had to take off one star for the location. It is in the middle of nowhere and surrounded by nothing (there wasn't even anywhere to get a morning coffee or newspaper) and I would not suggest walking alone at night (the walk to the Court Square E,M train was the least scary). They do have hourly busses into and out of Manhattan that seemed to work well for tourists, and even if the bus was full like it was on a really cold day, the staff immediately called backup cars to take the guests into Manhattan. Really enjoyed my stay.
