We bought tickets for a play and wanted to spend the night in NYC to enjoy ourselves, but we did not want to spend a fortune or stay in a dump. We found this hotel on-line and due to the low price we did not know what to expect.
The hotel is located on 51st facing the International Building of Rockafeller Center. It is a small boutique hotel. The rooms are on the small side, but they are set up great. There is a closet, a desk with two chairs and a chair with a built in tray to hold a book or a drink.
There was a microwave and a coffemaker. The room had lots of outlets, especially near the desk and the bed. Near the desk there was even a USB port you could use. There were also cables in a storage area on the desk in case you wanted to view anything on the TV.
The bathroom was set up nice and compact with a sliding door so it did not open into the room.
There is a chilled bottled water station on each floor which was very nice.
When you stay here you are also given access to the Terrace Room at the Club Quarters a few doors down where you can get a drink or have a meal.
The hotel is located in a great area. It is a short walk to the theater district and there is a couple of subway stations nearby. There is not much going on in the evening, especially on the weekend.
We can not wait to have another overnight.
