Just traveled with my two children; we stayed 5 nights. This is by far and away the best deal in Manhattan. Our room was small but luxurious; nice amenities, a heater in the bathroom, chocolates on our pillows! The beds were very comfortable. The included breakfast was a real value, as was having a fridge in our room. We were two very safe blocks (between the World Trade Center and the Federal Reserve Bank, we saw plenty of New York's finest) from the subway so it was very easy to get everywhere we wanted to go - the 4 train is a strait shot to Yankee Stadium, FAO Schwarz, Grand Central, etc. The staff was very gracious and there was always tea, coffee and pastries awaiting in the lobby. The alley behind the restaurant is chock-full of restaurants (it was a bit noisy on the Friday night we stayed, but not unbearable.) They even provide umbrellas. I'd stay here again in a second - though I'd strongly consider springing for the larger room. One of the most charming places I've stayed, and an amazing bargain in NYC.
