This is a nice hotel - the rooms are well laid out and having the kitchen area was a useful feature. We had requested a quiet room which we were given - we couldn't hear the elevator but could easily hear our neighbors at all hours of the night. The area did feel safe in spite of the peep shows close by. The breakfast buffet was not as good as other Staybridge Suites i have stayed in. We ended up staying the following two nights at the Crowne Plaza in Times Square where we had a cheaper rate, better room, location and breakfast buffet.
