I can only echo what everyone else is saying about this hotel: friendly staff, clean rooms, convenient location, comfy bed, etc., etc. My contribution is to review the STANDARD ROOM. (Most others appear to be reviewing the upgrade rooms.) The description of the standard room on the hotel website almost sounds apologetic, but it is better than they boast. As advertised, the room would be ideal for one person. In fact, their standard is bigger than two other hotels I've stayed at (Empire and 6 Columbus). There were two of us and it was fine, keeping in mind that in NYC, you really are not going to spend loads of time in your room. Their website is correct in saying there is not a lot of clothes storage space. I had one large suitcase and used the rack; he had a carry-on and found a corner for it. Two large suitcases would overwhelm the room. The closet has enough room for two heavy (puffy) coats and a sweater or two, but not much else. (I guess it would be better in the summer months when you would not have the heavy coats.) The bathroom and shower are of good size. Although small-ish, the room did not feel claustrophobic probably due to the light colors and light coming from the window. We faced the back and the structures behind are sufficiently spaced to allow for light. Overall, it is a terrific place. I was able to find one of those book now offers that made this place one of the best hotel deals ever for NYC. So, keep your eyes open; you never know. This is my fourth different hotel in NYC, and this one had the friendliest staff. Nesha, in particular, was so helpful. I also really appreciated the cucumber or citrus water in the lobby. The location is convenient. The street is not charming, but nothing in the Times Square area is. There are three hotels in a row here, so there are probably more tourists walking around than anything else. If this place is on your list of hotels, you will not do better than staying here.
