I had the opportunity to stay in this hotel twice, the first was around christmas 2010 during the snow storm that NY got and we were so happy to be in this hotel. The location is perfect, close to everything, from the hotel you can walk to Time square, fifth avenue and central park in minutes. During last christmas NY colapsed with the tons of snow everywhere and traffic was impossible but we walked to everywhere with no problems.
Another concern that we had was bed bugs, we were told that lots of hotels were infected with bed bugs so once we got into the room we made sure that the room was clean enough and we didn't have any problems with bugs.
The only recomendation that we had is improving amenities in the rooms, no coffee machine or microwave are available but the staff is friendly , the reception very helpful, even helped us to print cupons from Macy's to get discount on shopping and we were able to print our boarding pass before we headed to the airpot.
I will certanly recommend this hotel to everybody .
