I've stayed here a couple of times when visiting Manhattan. For about $100 less than you'd spend in the city, you get a clean, secure hotel room in a decent part of town and it's only a 20-30 minute subway ride to get into town. In the past they had a 24-hour FREE shuttle from the hotel to the 40th Street subway stop. I discovered on my last stay (10/2010) that while they still offer the shuttle free, it's no longer 24 hours. I can't remember exactly when the cut off is, but we got back from the city around midnight and had to pay $10 for the same exact shuttle from the subway to the hotel. In the past, the shuttle was a hotel-branded minivan that was free all the time. Now they appear to hire out to a livery service and while the cars are very very nice, I don't want to pay $10 every single night when I get back late (which most people do in NYC). I suppose the demand for the shuttle wasn't enough to keep it going 24 hours.
But that being said, if you want a clean, affordable hotel without NYC prices, it's a good bet.
