This hotel is in one of the best locations in lower manhattan. There are great bars, restaurants and shops flanking it on both sides as well as trains very nearby. The vibe is super cool and hip. The rooms are small but modern. We are staying here due to being displaced from Sandy and they helped us out with the rate. Also complimentary wifi and a really nice breakfast spread. Wonderful hotel in a great location. I wouldn't say this is a kid friendly hotel as it seems to cater to a younger crowd. My husband dog and I were very comfortable though.
