Occasionally I stay at a hotel like this to check it out as a lower cost option; I was sadly disappointed! The rate was about $150/night, which is not a cheap date, even in NYC at different times, and there were other options at the same rate this trip.
The requirement to ring the doorbell should have been the first sign,lobby on the second floor the second - I still went forward; the third was the elevator - room for two with bags at best, good luck if you have checked bags as their size would make the thing problematic. Onto my room on the 4th floor - holy macanoli! VCT (that's one foot square vinyl tiles) covers the floor in the halls and the rooms - old, tired and cracked at best! The room was a 10 X 7 box with a full size bed with a rock hard mattress, a corner sink and a window facing 6th Avenue - a small 1st generation flat screen TV with basic cable. No phone, no food, no pool, no pets! Do worry though bring your cigarettes - lots of guests smoking even though against the law in NY! Did I tell you NO BATHROOM! It's down the hall and shared by all.
I checked out and found another hotel - the place is a real dum and not worth $150 on any night - this is a $30-$50 flop house. YOu did not want to touch the bed, I peeked at the sheets, they were transparent!
Skip this one folks find anything better and be sure to read the fine print - you don't always get what you pay for!
