The title says it all. We got a really great price, but the room was tiny. There were two of us (both very small girls), and I can't imagine being any bigger and fitting. I was surprised that having the shared bathroom never presented a wait or a line.
Even though we went when it was 30degrees outside, the room was extremely hot, so we had the AC on whenever we were in there. This was a problem because it was very loud (and often woke me up in the middle of the night). The room was also really dry.
The elevator was definitely not my favorite part, pretty old and kind of scary. I also did not like having to give my key back to the front desk each time we left (though, I suppose I understand why, since they are actual keys, not cards).
All the staff we encountered were very friendly, and seemed to remember us. I think this may have had to do with there not being many other guests, but that was nice so it wasn't loud and we rarely had to wait for the elevator.
The location is GREAT. Very close to convenience stores, restaurants, bars, and Grand Central Station (which was nice for taking the subway to further away tourist areas). Easy walks to Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and the Empire State Building. The area seemed nice and safe, and was easy to navigate to.
I would recommend this hotel if you don't plan to be in the room often, and remember to talk a lock for your luggage when you are gone.
