Stayed three nights. Looks just like the photos. Very IKEA-ish decor. Everything very clean except the woodwork around doorknobs needed attention. Fully equipped kitchen. Comfortable bed, we asked for an extra blanket and got one right away. I would have been nice to have more towels though. Remember this is not a hotel! No one makes the bed, etc. Beautiful neighborhood, yards from the park, one block from subway, two blocks to Museum of Natural History. Couch folds out, my 20-something friend chose to sleep on the couch rather than fold it out, and was comfortable. Ottoman also folds out to single bed, but it didn't look comfortable. We opted to either put that cot mattress on the floor or have my 12 year old sleep with me in the queen bed. He ended up with me. Room was very quiet. Tall windows with no view , but they opened to get a nice breeze.
Travelocity lost our reservation and even though I had a confirmed reservation, the number I called to check in (no one on-site, you get buzzed in) had no record of it. They were very apologetic and accommodating. I suggest calling the hotel number on your Travelocity reservation confirmation and re-confirm with the hotel staff!
I would stay there again, especially if I was doing a lot of sightseeing/museums uptown. Other folks staying there were friendly. We stayed in 2R. Be prepared to wake up whenever the folks above you get up because the floors are hardwood. Luckily we all got up about the same time.
Great restaurants and shopping all around!
