Friendly staff, clean room on arrival, that is where the positives end. BUT, we did not have the benefit of the room being cleaned, vacuumed or serviced during our 2 night stay, nor did we get clean towels until we asked. We were left to make the beds. The TV did not work very well, the wifi was non-existent, the AC was erratic and needed to be constantly shut on and off and set lower and lower to get it to work. Even the ethernet cable was broken. The room was very tiny. Two double beds jammed against side and back walsl a small desk and smaller armoire left very little room to move around in the room. The bath took up around 40% of the total space, but there were hardly any amenities (1 lotion, 1 mouthwash, 1 bar soap for 3 people). In fact, we had to hunt for the second roll of toilet paper-- found in the armoire(??).
The neighborhood is also not the greatest. Hotel jammed into a crevice 3/4 of the way down the block between 9th and 10th avenues. Room is quiet, but walking to it late at night if you are alone, female or elderly, will not be a pleasant experience. There are no restaurants of any note very near to the hotel. The bottom line is that this is certainly no jewel in the hotel crown of NYC and for the price, you can easily find a Helmsley or equivalent hotel in a better neighborhood. They may even clean the room and make the bed during your stay!
