We got a good deal for labor day weekend and stayed 6 nights. We never stayed in NYC hotels before but based on some of the researches, we learned that NYC hotel rooms tend to be smaller. We got a king studio and it was large and comfortable. We arrived early in NYC at 8am and were hoping to get an early check in but they couldn't check us in until 3pm. It is a nice clean hotel but the neighborhood had constant construction and even when we were on high floors, I got waken up by jackhammer at 8 in the morning. Also the walk from the hotel to the nearest metro station is 15 mins. Avenue is wayyy further than street and you will be walking on condensed residential area with narrow pavement and a lot of dog walkers. I like kimpton hotels but if I return to NYC I will likely choose a hotel closer to a metro station.
