Stayed here last night with my boyfriend as he is moving to the city for a few months for an internship. We are both on a budget, but wanted to spend a night in NYC before he moved in on Sunday. the reviews we read were ok, but better then everything else in the area for the price, so we were a little hesitant but figured it was only one night... what the heck...We arrived at the hotel 1 hr after check in time. Our room wasn't ready but the front desk girl was very friendly. She offered us homemade cookies and said we could wait in the cafeteria where there was TV and coffee. About 20 minutes later our room was ready. after check in, the woman at the front desk took about 10 minutes talking to us about all the places we should go and how to get there. It was very helpful and greatly appreciated. when we got in the room, It actually exceeded my expectations for the price- there was a jacuzzi, which after a night in NYC, we took advantage of. Microwave, refrigerator, huge TV, king size bed, AC and the room actually smelled clean (like cleaning products), complimentary breakfast (although only to 9am was there breakfast, so kind of pointless if you are on vacation in NYC- no way are you waking up to make that deadline). Hotel also offers a shuttle (car service) which they said was free but it only goes to 10pm... who is back by 10 when on vacation in NYC? but it was a nice touch. All in all, if you don't want, or can't afford the ritz or hilton like us, this is definitely recommended as the staff was friendly and helpful, rooms were clean, and about a 15 minute walk to the Metro or cheap taxi ride.
