I've stayed at this hotel several times and have found it to be consistently good. Rooms are good-sized for Manhattan and prices are usually significantly less than hotels at 42nd and above. It's about 50ft away from the Herald Square subway station that gives easy access to Times Square, Wall Street, upper West Side, and Lexington/53rd on the east side. It's less than a 10 minute walk to Penn Station for access to many other locations, including the train to JFK. Staff are efficient and the rooms are clean.
