This place is convenient if you want a very affordable alternative to Times Square. Roughly 15 minutes from the hotel door to Central Park, and maybe another 5-8 to Times Square.
Rooms are tiny. Our friends' room literally didn't have room on the outsides of the beds. No real closet to speak of. Typical continental buffet...plus some microwave-type eggs and sausage.
Rooms are up to date, and were clean. Road noise (compared to Manhattan) was not noticeable.
Biggest problem was I have used dozens of hotels / Starbucks / whatever hotspots and NEVER gotten the number of security warnings from Chrome and IE 10.0 explicitly stating their internet was not secure and outside sites could easily be spoofs, etc. I asked three different staff to resolve -- their answer - "ignore the warnings and just hit "OK". Brilliant. So, when my office gets hacked, I'm sure they'll understand. Thus, I couldn't get any necessary work done on site during my week there. Ugh. Even if it's true that it IS safe (?) it's poor customer service, and not acceptable. "Those bedbugs? ignore them...they're safe, too."
